    I go to this school right now and they do not tolerate slackers. Many of the students last semester got removed because of the low grades they were getting.

    I attended HSHP from 2003 to 2007. Everyone I know from my graduating class is currently enrolled in an undergraduate program. HSHP consistently churns out highly motivated truly dedicated medically educated individuals. I will begin attending UT SouthWestern in the fall of 2010 and I owe it all to this WONDERFUL school! Be prepared for the rigors of a REAL magnet program however. My undergraduate studies seemed easy in comparison to the time I spent at Townview HSHP. The support is there if you are motivated.

    I'm VERY pleased with the level of education my daughter receives. The teachers offer before/after school tutoring and offer personal conferences with parents to keep them informed of their student's grades.
