The Memphis Academy of Health Sciences (MAHS)is the first public charter school in the state of Tennessee's history to open its doors in July 2003. MAHS Middle and High are high-performing, college- preparatory schools equipping students with the necessary skills to be competitive in the 21st Century. With an emphasis on the health sciences, our students demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak, and calculate with clarity and precision. MAHS schools of excellence empower students toward life-long learning, academic achievement, character growth, community building, and a desire to excel in their potential in college and life. A successful transition through the Middle and High school continuum into a post secondary institution will be the primary goal for all.
