Training in the field of hospitality, travel and tourism

The Downside

Most students miss a month or more of school

Founded in 2012, School for Tourism and Hospitality offers students a glimpse into the inner workings of running a hotel, resort or restaurant, such as jobs that range from accountant to retail manager. It also has a regular high school curriculum.  

The school faces challenges, however. Roughly one-fifth of its students live in temporary housing and most students miss a month or more of school, making consistency in lessons difficult. Fewer than half of all students graduate on time. The majority of the teachers would not recommend the school to other families, according to school surveys.

To improve, the school has raised academic expectations, preparing more 9th grade students to sit for Regents exams in both Algebra I and Living Environment so they are able to progress to more advanced math and science courses. Teachers divide students into small groups based on special populations, such as students with special needs and teens in temporary housing who may need extra support, like clothing or food, according to the CEP (comprehensive educational plan). 

The school opened a new kitchen and a culinary arts program in 2017. It has also expanded its internship program so more students can graduate with certification that may help them get employment after high school. 

The school shares the Jane Addams Educational Campus with New Visions Charter High School for Advanced Math and Science II. The schools collaborate through a Department of Education program designed to get public and charter schools to share good ideas.

Special Education: East Side House Settlement offers students additional social and emotional support, especially one-on-one support for students with exceptional need. 

Admissions: Educational option. The school has room for every applicant who applies. (Lydie Raschka, DOE data and web reports, November 2018)
