Mission Statement

Academy of Medical Arts fosters academic scholars and empathetic future health professionals who advocate for healthy families, healthy communities, and quality health care for all.

Academy of Medical Arts 2015-16

Academy of Medical Arts is in our fourth year as a Pilot High School on the Carson Complex.

We exist to prepare students for college, career, and life by connecting classroom knowledge, real world experience, and hands-on health science and medical practice. Due to our California Partnership Academy Grant and our California Health Science Capacity Building Grant, we are able to educate 100% of our students focusing on the academic and career technical education standard and offering hands-on, work-based learning experiences beyond the classroom walls.  As part of our academy, students explore interconnected health and medical practices, learn to make ethical decisions to benefit humankind, and embrace technological and entrepreneurial ideas in the pursuit of wellness, artistic expression, and medical advancement. In addition we preparing students for civic participation through the Habits of Heart and Mind and our flourishing HOSA Future Health Professionals service projects. 

SPECIAL SCHEDULES 5/11 and 5/16-5/20 for testing

Please do not schedule appointments, doctor's visits, or family outings during testing. It is extremely important that every student is in attendance, on-time, and well rested.

Habits of the Heart and Mind

The Habit of the Heart and Mind for April is Connection

March was Convention

 Perspective has something to do with looking. Students at AMA are asked to develop a worldview and examine events from history and current events, literature and nonfiction, and scientific and mathematic ideas from multiple points of view. In fact, at perspective has a Latin root meaning "look through" or "perceive," and all the meanings of PerspectiveFebruary was Perspective. According to vocabulary.com, perspective AMA nothing is studied in isolation, so the interconnectedness of ideas helps students understand the world and accept ideas other than their own.

January was Evidence

Evidence is the material used to proof or disprove something. It is the grounds for a particular belief.  Evidence is used to show something clearly or to make a specific point true in an argument.

According to Merriam-Webster.com, "evidence" is defined as an outward sign or indication. Synonyms of evidence include confirmation, corroboration, documentation, testimony, validation, or witness.

At AMA, students are taught to provide evidence in their scholarly work, to evaluate the validity and credibility of sources, and to determine the most relevant evidence for their arguments.
