ABOUT

Project-Based Learning is essential to all learning process. It has never been emphasized in such a magnitude in today’s schools around the world, though every learning process has involved “PBL” in a conventional classroom in an example-based mode. PBL is not only a style but an ability. We are proudly celebrating our students’ achievements of their powerful PBL and awakening the great importance of a meaningful, powerful and rigorous teaching and learning through HLHS family where leaders are made!

Many students in our community are experiencing an unprecedented time of uncertainty; however, throughout this experience they have persevered not only to receive the credits needed for them to continue their high school careers but have created authentic, meaningful products that can be used immediately within their communities as well. It is important to celebrate this work in order for our students to understand that their community is supporting them just as they are working hard to support their community. In the spirit of Somos Familia, HLHS works to celebrate our students and their accomplishments within school and afterward during their careers.

¡SOMOS FAMILIA!

MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/PRINCIPAL

Leticia Archuleta, LCSW LMSW LSSW

Health Leadership High School: a public charter school dedicated to hands-on, project-based learning that supports youth through rigorous instruction. Health Leadership High School is focused on supporting youth with rigorous academic instruction and opportunities to enter into a Health Career. Our mission is to grow tomorrow’s leaders who will create stronger and healthier communities. This website is designed to showcase student growth in becoming our future leaders in the community.

Teachers take a challenging health problem and design student projects with support from health experts who help them ensure that what they are teaching students is relevant and authentic. Students must demonstrate mastery and project completion publicly in the form of exhibitions. Connecting our students with industry partners through real-life projects, community volunteer work, mentor-ships, shadow-ships, and paid internships gives our students the opportunity to develop 21st Century Skills that include teamwork, problem solving, self-advocacy, and research practice.

The students of Health Leadership High School not only learn the value of strong citizenship, but also become leaders who are able to give back to their families and community. Students engage in collaborative work in a supportive, small school environment that values the overall well-being of young people. Health Leadership High School provides the tools and experience students need to become successful leaders in the health care industry.

HLHS Vipers are excited to share their accomplishments and welcome your feedback!

We believe that working together with our community provides students an authentic way to gain knowledge and deepen learning. Part of the Health Leadership mission is to support student growth, develop relationships within the community and ultimately improve the quality of education.

You will have the opportunity to influence the development and outcomes of student projects by mentoring a student through his/her exhibition project. The experience a Community Partner provides students at Health Leadership High School is priceless. Many students have pursued areas in the healthcare field simply because of the passion and encouragement offered by their Community Partner.
