High Tech High School is a Hudson County School of Technology that will be located in Secaucus, NJ starting in the Fall of 2018 (not to be confused with High Technology High School in Lincroft, NJ).
Students in 8th grade apply to High Tech High in the fall and receive notification of their acceptance in February.
