The CSE contributed to the design and launch of this college-prep program that is designed for students from all social, cultural and economic backgrounds. The school is a laboratory for CSE researchers who are examining the success of this school model to engage and prepare students for careers in heath and sciences. Three CSE graduate students are working within small, teacher-led investigative teams that foster communication, student engagement, research skills, critical thinking and problem-solving. As the school enters its second year, it is currently comprised of grades, 6, 9 and 10. Students currently entering the tenth grade will be eligible to earn college credit in grades 11 and 12. Seniors at HS2 will participate in internship rotations at local hospitals, medical facilities and research labs.
