The Center for Public Health and Advanced Medical Studies is located on the campus of White Knoll High School. The Center is open to all students in Lexington School District One beginning in grade 10.
Students spend a total of two 90-minute blocks within the Center (half a day) each semester. All students take four Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses focusing on the biomedical sciences. In addition to the courses taken through the center, students have the opportunity in their senior year to gain real world exposure through various work force visits.
Students applying to the Center are required to have completed Biology 1 and Algebra 1 Honors prior to their sophomore year and have completed or be enrolled in Algebra 2 (Honors preferred). Students must pass all Center courses at a given grade level to continue to the next year of the program.
