Take a look at this photo of the North Bennet Street School back in 1892! The school was originally known as the North End Industrial Home and first opened as a settlement house for immigrants.

Since the schools founding, it has been known for its vocational training for students. Although the type of classes offered at the school have evolved over the years, the mission of improving the lives of students through the teaching of practical skills has remained.

In early November, the school opens its doors to the public for an open house. Check out some of the recent student work!
