New high school in New York focuses on hotel studies quotes prinicpal David Martin and describes the school’s partnerships with New York University, Sheraton, Benchmark Hospitality and NYC & Company, the city’s tourism organization.

New York has other high schools that focus on tourism and hospitality, such as the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism in Brooklyn and the Food and Finance High School in Manhattan. What differentiates the School for Tourism and Hospitality is the American Hotel and Lodging Association’s certification program.
