Up until the 1990s, all students joined a health profession. Now you don't have to pick a health career, but are encouraged to do so. Clara Barton High School for Health Professions has a wonderful Clinical Program, which allows seniors in certain health careers to work in a hospital for half their day or work a week and go to school for a week. Students can graduate as a licensed practical nurse and get a job in a hospital after graduation. They also can be certified to work in any of the other majors upon graduation.

Many accelerated courses are offered, through the Gateway Honors Program, including advanced placement courses such as A.P. Biology, A.P. English, and A.P. United States History. Gateway offers rigorous course instruction to prepare for college.
