The Education Pathway is designed for students with a passion for making a difference in the lives of others. This pathway prepares you with the skills necessary to help cultivate healthy growth in children, shaping their lives in and out of the classroom. Future careers in the education system would include teachers, guidance counselors, principals, and other administrative roles.
Allied health professionals are involved with the delivery of health and related services including diagnostic,technical, therapeutic, direct patient care and support services. Health Care Assistants, also known as nursing assistants, auxiliary nurses, or support workers, provide care to patients in hospitals and other medical settings.
Students interested in this pathway will learn about the five distinct pathways in Health Science including: Diagnostic Services, Therapeutic Services, Health Informatics, Support Services and Biotechnology Research & Development. Future careers can range from nurses, doctors, and pharmacists, to medical interpreting, veterinarians and physical therapists.
Medical assistants complete administrative and clinical tasks in the offices of physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. Their duties vary but can include; recording patient history and personal information, measuring vital signs, such as blood pressure, help physicians with patient examinations, giving patients injections or medications as directed by physicians, schedule patient appointments, preparing blood samples for laboratory tests and entering patient information into medical records.

Senior interns enrolled in Everett High School's Health Science Pathway recently distributed CPR preparedness kits to every classroom at EHS. The kits include gloves and a faceshield with a one-way, valve-breathing barrier that helps prevent disease transmission. The kit also includes graphics to help responders remember the correct hand placement for administering breaths, as well as a visual of the proper head-tilt/chin-lift technique to use while administering life-saving CPR. Finally, the materials include instructions for hands-only CPR for those students and teachers who have not yet been trained in full CPR.
