IBM is getting into the public school game, with the opening of the IBM High School set for next year. The high school will open in New York City and will serve students from grades 9 to 14.
Students who graduate the IBM High School will leave with an associate degree and a guaranteed job offer from IBM, although they can apply elsewhere. The public school's attendance will come via New York City's lottery system. Opening up high schools to train future employees could be the next big thing for tech companies.
