Health Leadership High School

Student Projects

Health Leadership High School classes are based on a Learning By Doing model. Students participate in four projects a trimester and earn their credits through hands-on activities in and out of the classroom. Each project has a final exhibition where students demonstrate their learning to industry and community professionals.

During exhibitions students share their health projects in a science fair format. Judges evaluate how well students master health concepts and provide feedbackJudges are welcome to attend for 30 minutes or more based on availability.
