SECAUCUS, NJ — Hudson County’s newest High Tech High School is open. Set on the 20-acre Frank J. Gargiulo Campus, the new $150 million facility will educate nearly 2,000 students in more than 70 leading-edge classrooms and specialty spaces. The Hudson County Improvement Authority (HCIA) managed the design and construction process for Hudson County Schools of Technology (HCST) and partnered with RSC Architects, DMR Architects, MAST Construction Services and Terminal Construction Corp. to design and build the new 350,000 s/f school.
The county vocational magnet school – which serves grades 9-12 in Hudson County – combines technically-focused, hands-on learning with a challenging academic curriculum. Replacing its former aging, undersized North Bergen campus, the new school has been described as “the gem of high schools in Hudson County.”
“The Frank J. Gargiulo Campus will quickly become the gold standard for technical high schools across the country. Our design team, working collaboratively with our educators, have created something truly revolutionary. I know that it will serve our students and staff with the resources to drive learning to the next level,” said Amy Lin-Rodriguez, acting superintendent of HCST.
