A new $150 million, 350,000-sf technical high school in Secaucus, N.J. will provide education to almost 2,000 students across 70 classrooms and specialty spaces. High Tech High School sits on the 20-acre Frank J. Gargiulo Campus, which replaces the former North Bergen campus, and provides technically-focused, hands-on learning.

The new campus includes a fabrication lab, 120-seat black box theater, 325-seat performing arts auditorium, 80-inch interactive monitors to replace and enhance standard chalkboards, and a tv production studio with a functioning control room. Food for the culinary kitchen lab will be grown in a hydroponic rooftop garden. Designed to meet LEED Gold standards, the school features water efficient landscaping, geothermal heating, a green roof, and wind turbines.
