What’s Special

A safe haven with good health career facilities

The Downside

Metal detectors

The Academy for Health Careers aims to prepare students for jobs such as emergency medical technician (EMT), x-ray technician or administrator in health information billing and coding.  

Students may learn to take a patient’s vital signs, study blood samples under a microscope, or practice emergency care in a simulated ambulance in the school’s “medical facility room.” 

Housed in the Paul Robeson Educational Campus in Crown Heights, the school is orderly and safe; most teachers say long-time Principal Deonne Martin is an effective manager who keeps the school running smoothly, according to school surveys. Most students graduate on time and at least half are ready for college-level work.

In each grade, students focus on a different health-related topic: Ninth graders get an overview of the healthcare system, 10th graders tackle emergency medicine, 11th graders focus on hospital patient care, and 12th graders explore biomedical technology. Students may take field trips to hospitals and other health-related sites. 

A couple downsides: More than half the students miss at least a month of school. All students must pass through a metal detector to get into the building. 

Admission: Open. Priority is given to Brooklyn students or residents. (Lydie Raschka, DOE statistics, December 2018)
