H.E.R.O. High (Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School) is an Early College and Career High School serving a diverse student population in grades 9-14. Through our innovative program, students will obtain an Associate Degree in nursing or community health, a CTE high school diploma, and supported entry to a career in healthcare or a four-year college program.
HERO High is one of the P-Tech schools mentioned by President Obama in the 2013 State of the Union address and featured recently in the Time magazine piece entitled The Diploma That Works. In his 2014 State of the City address, Mayor DeBlasio mentioned HERO High as an innovative program that helps students gain entry to the middle class. Faculty members at HERO High will shape the future of public education as we build a school that allows our students to prosper in a challenging 21st century economy.
Graduates of HERO High will act as leaders in their chosen professions, transforming healthcare delivery systems in ways that improve the well-being of diverse communities in the Bronx and around the world.
HERO provides supported entry to college through our Hostos Associate Degree partnership programs in nursing and community health, as well as access to on-staff college coordinators.
Hundreds of paid internship opportunities, as well as professional healthcare classes, and work-based learning programming are available through both HERO's partnership with Montefiore Hospital and other partnerships with healthcare providers.
