Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health & Science Charter School provides our Scholars with a nurturing and challenging educational experience to develop their abilities and address the health and economic disparities in our community. Upon graduation, our Scholars will be prepared for the highest levels of college achievement, gainful employment as certified health care professionals, and a commitment to serve others as they pursue rewarding lives and respected careers for themselves.
Our core values are infused in the everyday life of our school. Our school and our founder, Urban Health Plan hold these values in the highest regard.
Excellence drives everything we do. We maintain a laser focus on high academic performance through continuous improvement and innovation with the goal of making a positive change in our world.
SCHOLAR AND EMPOWERMENT CENTERED
We cultivate and support a learning environment that inspires and empowers each scholar to own their goals, decisions, achievements, and lives.
ACCEPTANCE AND INCLUSION
We embrace our differences and strive to be non-judgmental and inclusive by establishing compassionate and respectful relationships that build self-worth and self-esteem.
COMMUNITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
We are a school community that is interdependent and supportive of each other. We carry this value to create a greater community that will result in a better world.
EDUCATION AND HEALTH EQUITY
Equitable access to education and healthcare lead to a successful school community. We support and reinforce a school culture where children will attain an excellent education and are assured quality healthcare.
