At H.E.R.O. High, students learn how to save lives and serve their communities by preparing for a career as a Registered Nurse or Community Health Worker. Students take college classes starting in 10th grade and can earn a 2-year Associate degree with help from a small school environment. Our academic program prepares every student to succeed in college and their career through hands-on, real-world problem solving, advanced work in math and science and challenging reading and writing tasks in every class. Students start technical training early through internships in clinical nursing and community health work. Even heroes need extra help some times, so we offer tutoring in every subject area.

High or on the campus of our partner Hostos Community College, Internships in Nursing and Community Health, Advisory, Tutoring in every subject; As we expand, we plan to offer Spanish Native Language Arts.
