    "Just because we have high test scores does not make this a good school. A good school has a good atmosphere and teaching philosophy, both of which are lacking here. This, coming from a student who excelled academically and in extracurriculars. While you will meet a more mature group of students here, the prevalence of snarky and inadequate teachers makes HCHS just like any other school. In the recent years, the administration has grown especially intolerable, with the new principal who shows passive aggressive favoritism. The amount of busy work (especially in Anatomy and Physiology) is ridiculous, but probably on par with other area high schools. While the other comment talks about bonding over studying, competition is fierce and the vast majority of conversations center around lack of sleep or gpa. Not a healthy environment, imo. A few great teachers (latin teachers, some freshman teachers, a few medical course teachers). In short, nothing special, probably more complaining students on average, no sports team, and a falsely inflated sense of elitism."

    "This is a wonderful school; the close environment is a great way to make close friends. The school is not only for health as it excels in the maths and sciences. I went here, and now I am at MIT, and I'm sure it is due to the teachers, the volunteer work, and the specialized health classes like the in-hospital Clinical Rotation class."

    "I'm only a Freshman (or Fish...) , but I'm already attached to this "nerd" school, and am proud to be a "nerd" :) ! At this school, nerd is a teasing compliment, and there is good peer pressure (for example: friends remind and urge each other to do homework, study, etc.) . On days of big tests, my friends and I also make big study groups at lunch. Lastly, I believe that this school is already preparing me for college, as well as the work field, and not just preparing me for tests and such. Most of the teachers are very good, and the Latin program is amazing as well! An altogether awesome school!"

    "The teachers at Health Careers are amazing and the curriculum is challanging. I feel that my kids are very well prepared for college. That being said there are still some problems - 1) don't expect any help with the college application process. Counselors do not answer emails and will put you off when you try to set up a conference. It took 5 weeks to get transcripts. 2) Just because one of your kids gets in does not mean any others will, regardless of qualifications. I have 2 kids and HCHS and 1 at another high school. Last year I would have given 10 stars but things have changed a lot since the old principal left. Try CommArts - I here good things from parents there."

    "A GREAT SCHOOL, IF YOUR CHILD IS "LUCKY" ENOUGH TO GET CHOSEN BY "LOTTERY" IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO ATTEND THIS OUTSTANDING SCHOOL, THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE "RANDOMLY" CHOSEN IN THE LOTTERY IS TO FIRST GET A JOB AT NORTHSIDE I.S.D."
