Urban Assembly School for Collaborative Healthcare, The

Overview written by the school: At UASCH, we prepare students for college and careers with a broad and deep focus on unique healthcare sectors. Coursework is as challenging as it is supportive with a strong emphasis on cross-curricular and project-based learning. As a member of the highly successful Urban Assembly network, UASCH has established partnerships with top-tier healthcare facilities that work in order to bring timely healthcare topics into the classroom and expose students to modern healthcare facilities. In addition, it is possible for students to pursue off-site educational opportunities in the 12th grade. UASCH values parents as partners and cultivates a strong school-parent relationship.
