Growth Mindset

Our students are encouraged to do their best and develop a 'no matter what attitude' as they mature into skillful, productive professionals who can readily compete in the medical industry.


By doing our individual best, we better our family, our school, and our island. At HMC, we introduce students to a growth mindset, using the mental tools outlined by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D.

"For twenty years, my research has shown that the view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life. It can determine whether you become the person you want to be and whether you accomplish the things you value.

This growth mindset is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts. Although people may differ in every which way-in their initial talents and aptitudes, interests, or temperaments everyone can change and grow through application and experience."
