Friday, Nov. 2, marked the official grand opening of the new High Tech High School as many Hudson County officials came together for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The building was named after former Superintendent of Schools Frank Gargiulo, who announced his retirement during the ceremony.
The $160 million state-of-the-art high school includes dedicated wings for different vocational academies, with recording and production studios, science labs and music classrooms for the students to enjoy.
The Frank J. Gargiulo Campus stands on 22 acres of land within Laurel Hill Park and will replace the old High Tech building in North Bergen.
Hudson TV spoke with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco, former Superintendent of Schools Frank Gargiulo, and more. Gargiulo spoke on his retirement and plans for what’s next to come.
