Our Insights

What’s Special

Certifications in computer systems and graphic design

The Downside

Friction between teachers and the administration

Chelsea Career and Technical Education High School gives students hands-on training in computer networking and repair. They may also learn photography, layout media, and web design.

The school has two small academies: Chelsea Technical and Graphic Design. About three-quarters of the students graduate on time, many with professional certificates that may help them get jobs.

The school has experienced ups and downs over the years. Principal Jaivelle Reed, who replaced popular, long-time Principal Brian Rosenbloom in 2016, has struggled to gain the trust of faculty. The Quality Review says the school lacks a cohesive vision and surveys show teachers mistrust the principal.

More than half the students come from outside Manhattan and enjoy the vibrant Soho area during their outdoor lunchtime—as long as they retain the privilege by keeping up their grades.

Chelsea CTE shares a century old building with NYC iSchool.

Admissions: Priority to Manhattan residents. Graphic Design admits students according to the educational option formula designed to ensure a mix of students of different abilities. The Technical Academy looks at test scores, attendance and grades. (Lydie Raschka, DOE data, September 2018)
