"The students can actually articulate what they learned, and whether it went the right way or the wrong way. They can tell you about what they learned and why it has value."

  - Dr. Debbi Burdick
    Superintendent

"They're retaining all the information because they're doing something with their hands. The students are taking blood, ankle wraps, looking at images of the x-rays. They really get a lot out of it and they realize what they like and what they don't like."

"I had a senior last year and he wanted to be an elementary school teacher, then he took this class and he realized that he actually liked the medical imaging unit. Now he's in a radiology program."

  - Melissa Ellis
    Health Occupations Instructor
    Bellflower Middle-High School
