North Bennet Street School 

When students plot future careers, the list of possible jobs usually includes the most obvious professions: software engineer, IT specialist, intelligence analyst, registered nurse, civil engineer or dietitian. What's less likely to make the cut are things like violin maker, furniture maker and bookbinder. Conventional wisdom says these are jobs of a bygone era, the relics of outmoded craftsmanship, replaced by factory production, IKEA, and a proclivity for all-things-digital.

But the North Bennet Street School in Boston's North End isn't buying it. They've got programs in eight handcrafts including jewelry-making, preservation carpentry, piano tech, locksmithing and instrument-making, and the school has been a runaway success. It's now in its 127th year of operation and still going strong.
