Academy of Medicine and Public Service

Lead Teachers: Claudia Gonzalez and John Tobias

The Academy of Medicine and Public Service offers a college preparatory curriculum in two connected pathways – Health Science and Public Service. Students interested in professions in health, law, education, counseling, or social services are able to explore their interests while contributing to their community. AMPS provides many experiential learning opportunities through project-based curriculum, service learning and internships that extend student learning beyond the traditional framework.

High school represents an important transition into adulthood – from a life planned by others to one planned by and for oneself. AMPS instills a sense of empowerment and future vision in our students, encouraging them to prevail and become agents of change. We prepare students to take the lead in their own lives and to contribute to the life of their communities, while challenging them to think critically and to increase their capacities no matter their starting point.

AMPS is ideal for students who want to:

  • Be prepared for a 4-year college or university
  • Explore career options in health, counseling, education, law or social services through hands on service learning and internships
  • Challenge themselves, develop their strengths and discover their hidden talents
  • Participate actively in a strong, supportive learning community
  • Take college classes and begin college programs while still in high school
