Hospitality Senior High PCS is a great school for students who want to go on to College and achieve their dreams of their future successes. The Principal Mr. McBride is a true leader and really cares about the well being of each an every student at Hospitality Senior High PCS. The staff there really tries to keep a positive atmosphere for students to learn and tries to assistant student to make sure they make the best choices to push them closer to achieving their dreams of success.
This school has really prepared me for the real world and also for my higher learning
Hospitaltiy has done well under the direction and care of Mr. McBride. My child/nephew has graduated the class of 2013 and I am thankful for all the dedication they put into his education and for always being their and listening and nuturing him to become a great man today. He wants to go to college and loves learning and knows he can achieve. Thank you HHS
Hospitality High School is the worst school in the DC area. While the staff is good, the administration is either working for the Marriott Corporation and is not interested in the well being of the students, (they do not interact with students at all) or they are afraid of the behaviors of the students and prefer to hide behind their office doors ( the principal and assistant principal). Teachers are bullied by administration and students (7 left by October 30th and did not return). Programs offered by the Marriott Corporation are wonderful but all students cannot avail themselves of the programs, only ones "liked" by the incompetent administration. I would not recommend that you send any student there.
I attended this school a few years ago and the new principal there is just terrible. He shows favoritism to trouble making students and the vice principal sits in her office on fb & watching real housewives of atlanta all day. The executive director that is also in the building sits around and tries to act like she's maintaining some type of control of the students when really she doesn't do a thing. The test scores are terrible...they're constantly getting in new teachers so don't get used to anyones teaching style. There were some very good teachers there but now the principal and vp try to hire all of their friends to work there so they'll have some people to socialize with since no one else in the building likes them. The upperclassmen math teacher is the worst...in no way do they prepare you for college...and the people in charge are disrespectful. The vp used to teach there and although i never took her class my friends have been cursed at by her before.. Worst school ever..they can't even get their own building because their test scores are so bad & they dont have enough students..they had to bring back students they kicked out to get their enrollment up.
Those four and five star comments are cleary written by people that work in the building because the school is terrible and has been on a downward spiral since the new principal has gotten there & I have never seen a hospitality student that can write that well..Sorry.
From the perspective of a former faculty member, I can tell you that having your child attend this school is a bad idea. For the school to be called Hospitality, the attitudes of the staff, especially the leadership is the exact opposite of that. All they care about is enrollment numbers and bring back students that were previously expelled or "transitioned" out of the school just to meet enrollment goals. Students are suspended for not being in uniform for days, but those who curse out teachers and staff are only taken to a "relief room." Unless they curse at the principal or vp, then they are suspended for a week. The building temperature is controlled by Roosevelt so students often sit in classrooms so cold they can see their breath and can't put on a jacket unless it's a uniform jacket. In the summer, the classrooms are too humid for students to stay awake and learn. Truancy is high, new DC CAS scores are low (26% proficient) and enrollment will decrease. The school is a poorly run, chaotic mess and needs to make serious changes before it is shut down.
My nephews has been there for the last three years and now the school is under new leadership, since last year, the school is doing great. This being high school, a lot of the academic success fall on students wanting to learn, but Hospitality makes sure they have all the tools needed to succeed in school, college and in their career. Its a relaxed atmosphere of fun and 'hospitality'.
This school has not been rated for 6 years but has changed dramatically. Look at test scores, college going scores or historical data. The solid record of the school is clear cut.
This school's teacher and administration are serious about students getting into and attending college. If you want your students to do well in high school and attend college- this school is a good choice.
Contrary to what is written above, I love attending Marriott Hospitality High School. I am currently a senior and I feel as though I am challenged everyday with a demanding courseload and pushy teachers. My schedule includes classes ranging from AP English and Honors US Government, to Pre-Calculus and Probablilty and Statistics which I take at the Catholic University of America. The school has truly 360ed and I know that by the end of the year, I will be ready to face the challenges that await me in college! -Okezie Nwoka
I attended Marriot when it was no good.Teachers didnt care what you did,they basically handed out A's and B's to the kids.All we did in class ALL day was talk amongst us and basically ALL of the school had left and were skipping by around 11am everyday.I now attend college and can see that I had NO preparation for college.Thank god in my senior year I transfered out of there and I was able to receive some college preparation in another school.I dont now how the school is currently,but I wouldnt be surprised if it is in the same condition.A shame though,there are some very bright intelligent young kids in Marriot,they just dont simply get teached and challenged.
I attended Marriott and at that time this school was not good at all. We had to much time on our hands and basically did what we wanted. I now attend college and realized that I was not fully prepared for college. One good thing is that I was able to take classes at UDC.
