The Highwood at SAIT Polytechnic presents a unique dining experience; not only does it offer five-course  dinner service, but it is also a live classroom powered entirely by students. The three learning programs that operate out of the restaurant are professional cooking, hospitality management and baking and pasty arts. At The Highwood, students provide world-class cuisine and service under the guidance of industry experts.

The Highwood dining room has been in operation for over 50 years and operates according to the school schedule, open most weekdays for lunch, and Monday to Thursday for dinner.

“We want our students out there working in the industry during the weekends," says food and beverage instructor Darwin Ens. He has been involved with the the hospitality and tourism program since 1998, and teaches students how to run a restaurant, but also that customer service really is the key to success.

“I always want to make sure to emphasize that whatever role the students fill, it’s about creating an optimal guest dining experience,” he says. “The biggest thing that scares me is when people just view us as a dining room and not a live classroom. It’s not staff, it’s students.”
