Time to begin my rant. I'm currently a freshman at the school and I think the only thing the school could be even slightly proud of is that it's the old Stuyvesant building. There are only 6 teachers out of the 11 I've had so far that are at least decent and 3 that care if you are properly learning or not. The students in the school are not all bad, but those who aren't bad are mostly the shy ones who are unable to learn because of the latter (students and teachers). The staff is incredibly rude, and some of them even call students improper names (not exactly profanity). When I came to the school, I expected way better. But instead, after taking 2 and half years of French and passing the proficiency with a 97, I was FORCED to take Spanish which is not a language I really prefer learning. Even after that mishap, turns out I got a terrible teacher who takes off points for no reason. I've always got 95-100 in French but now I'm finding myself receiving erroneous zeros. There is even a Geometry teacher I have whom jokes around with the class, shooting curses here and there, that cannot teach properly. If I fail the Math regents, I'm blaming it on him. I've already excelled with two.

I graduated from this school in the year of 2006. I had experiences with this school, and I am proud to say that I graduated from this school. I am currently a nurse and I believe it is through HPHS.

I am currently a junior at this school and I have to tell you that this school is not as great as it sounds. There are some extremely rude and disrespectful students. There are only some teachers that are actually involved in your work. However, the AP teachers are great. They work hard to make you succeed. Those classes are excellent but of course very hard. The science programs are good. They give you a lot of knowledge you need to go into the medical profession. This is not the worst school ever but it's not the best either.

I am a former student who graduated in the class of '09. As other reviews have stated, there are quite a few negative points to this specific high school, however, there is some good. Unfortunately, the former outweighs the latter, so let's start there. Everyone in their high school years have a few teachers that were difficult or strict, but at HPHS, there are some surprisingly terrible teachers; there are some that are actually manipulative and intentionally insulting. However, there are others that give extra attention, care and pleasantries to their students - yet this is rare. I had more problems with the teacher's lack of concern than I ever had with any of the students. Upon entering college, I felt unprepared and only taught how to pass a test rather than a deep understanding of any applicable concepts. For a public school, this is not the worst school, but it is lacking in many regards; school spirit, parental involvement, funds for recreational activities (such as trips or more sports teams or more instruments). I do not regret going to this school, however, a part of me - whenever I listen to others talk about their high school experience - feels gypped.

I am currently a junior here at this school and I must say that even though I can see that the current principal is trying his hardest to try to make this school into something that someone can be proud to go to, but it just seems a bit hopeless. The teachers are horrible there are only a handful that actually helps you to succeed and really are anxious and trying to provide tutoring after school in their subject, but the rest of the teachers are people who can't even teach or care. The names of their programs SOUND great, but they are just a veil of words to cover the below average work. Now it is mandatory for students to take the foreign language regents,but how can anybody possibly score a passing grade at all when the teachers don't even know how to teach their own students the language at all!! I don't really recommend this school because it is over crowded and most of the students are bad and rude. Some of the teachers even disregard their disruptive behavior! It's absolutely ridiculous!

I attended this school from 2004-2008. First of all I must say that the only good thing that I took away from this school were the lasting friendships that I made. As far as teachers go, I can literally count on one hand the amount who truly care about their students. I can personally write a novel about the all of the situations in which teachers were rude and inconsiderate towards students. Allow me to say here that I was an AP student and I am currently attending a highly prestigious four year college. NO thanks to health professions high school. The teachers are mediocre and although it is a math and science school those who teachers these subjects are the worst in the whole school. Please do not send your children to this school.

Hi, I am a freshman here at HPHS..and so far...its actually a good school .The teachers are very sociable, good at making kids feel motivated and confident in their school work. Overall the school is well but needs more extra curricular activities..and more student invovlement...The school is also over populated with crowded hallways and that may be a disadvantage but you could make alot of friends at this school. So far I made alot of new friends. The school aids are very helpful and cool. With 3 schools in one big school.. it could take up a whole lot of space.HPHS is ok so far..lets see wat the rest of the freshman year brings me..Well I hope this helped the parents or the students that want to go here.

My daughter went here for two years. I only regret not getting her out after her freshmen year. It requires an 80-85 average in math for admission, then it rides out those junior high school gains w/o adding to it. After two years of math taught by a teacher who either did not know how to teach math b or wouldn't, my child was failing in math and convinced she was not smart in this area. When I sought help from the math teacher, head of department, even the principal, I was told that math b was 'hard' not 'easy' like math a, which she took in junior high. I transferred her to Benjamin Banneker in Brooklyn. My daughter's an A student in math again. She's being taught the steps to solve math problems. My child enjoyed Health Prof socially, but it was abysmal academically.

well this school is a very calm school although it gets roudy in the hallways... its crowded but managable .... the teachers are fair graders but sometimes can be a little unfair.. they help you alot and there is alot of tutoring available but the students dont go... there are sports but they should have more programs... students need to be more involved... if you want to excel in health careers i think this is the school to go to...

I think that it is a very great school, At first my daughter was a little skeptical about it, but now she says that it is okay. Also they offer tutoring which is great. The teacher is really helpfull with the student. I think they offer lots of education and activities is just that you have to ask question in what's available, which every parent should do. overall I give this school a 4.

i am currently attending this shcool and i have to say its terrible. The best thing would have to be the clean bathrooms. I mean for me i this is only my opinoin but i must say as i walk along the halls of this school i feel like kids could care less about their education, and the teachers could care less about the students. I mean certain teachers cant even control their students and they wont do anything about it. there is no discipline. As for the school uniforms no one wears them yet theres no punishment for thoes who dont wear them. So why should thoes who do wear them have to suffer in wearing the school uniform? Frankly i cant wait to tranfer out of this school.

HPHS is a great school and prepares you for college. I was taught how to do resumes and how to act in an interview. General requirements are to be fulfilled before taking the extra classes that deal with the program the child is in so it is not that the school does not give it is just that there are other important things to be done. There are activities for students afterschool and the teams are excellent so in that case everything my mother and I heard at my freshmen year orientation was true eventhough principals and vice principals have changed since.

I'm going to be extremely honest therefor parents and students will understand how this school works. high school is a very important time in an adolescents life. hphs has probably been the best experience for me and my mother. I would totally recommend this school for anybody who has set high standards for themselves. just keep your head up straight an choose the right people to be with.

I went to my Daughter orientation of her freshman year she is now a sophmore and everything they told me in the orientation is not what is going on this school. This school is for Health Professions And She yet has had classes dealing with any type of health professions. Also when I call to find out if my daughter is in school that day the always transfer me form person to person and still I do not find out. As for the Extracurricular activities They do give out childrn much information about it. Because my daughter is very shy and she wont speak out. they should give notices for all the activities offered at the school. Also Internship is required and they do not help the student prepare for interview or on how to make a resume. This school needs to have more information mailed to parents.

I loved this school. it was my best choice. i was a freshman at this school and i loved it. It was pretty hard to find the school at first but i found it after some time. they have a tour for all the freshmans about a week before school starts, which is really good, so you can see where all the classes are. The teachers try to keep us well disciplined and they definetely care about you. They try very hard to get parents involved at this school, about every month they have a PTA meeting. The counselors really care also. you would really like this school.
