My daughter attends this school and I cannot say enough about it! The teachers and staff are so great to deal with. The students that attend MMACHS are very polite and it is like a family. They are able to get concurrent credits for some of their class through ISU, BSU and NNU. My daughter looks forward to getting her CNA and EMT certification and they also have Pharm Tech option as well. HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) is one of MMACHS clubs. The students can compete in State events and that can take them to Nationals. I believe that if you have a student that is interested in the health care field, you need to check this school out.
