This 11,600 square-foot facility includes two complete teaching kitchens with 48 student cooking stations, a 50-seat teaching kitchen/auditorium, and a 100-seat dining room/restaurant that provides students with one of the most sophisticated high school culinary arts academies in the United States.

    By focusing on hands-on training, students prepare for a dynamic, rewarding career in the food service and hospitality industry. Students not only prepare food, they learn about nutrition, marketing, the lodging industry, hospitality industry, restaurant designing, catering, and management skills.
