The New Brunswick Health Sciences Technology High School is a public school of choice for New Brunswick, NJ students. In conjunction with the City of New Brunswick, its Board of Education and the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, IEP developed a public high school of choice for students who are seriously interested in getting a head start on a career in the health professions and biotech industries.Our modern facility – which includes computer and science laboratories – uses performance-based learning activities paired with external learning experiences at renowned institutions such as The Cancer Institute of New Jersey and The Children\’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
The High School engages students in an educational environment that emphasizes math, science, and the humanities, as well as exposure to current cutting-edge technology. The school provides a sequentially developed core curriculum that reflects real world experiences in the fields of medical and health professions and offers students extended opportunities to achieve academic success and develop their potential in this exciting field of study. The mission is to provide students with the academic and ethical skills necessary for success in this rapidly evolving field through a course of study that is focused on interdisciplinary activities and hands on experiences.
IEP provided the total package to create the school, including a financing program, a construction plan for the facility, and a complete school management program.
