Construction
Notice to Town Residents Regarding SHS/SMS Construction
In December of 2013 a referendum was passed by the voters of the Town of Secaucus to renovate and expand the Secaucus High School/Middle School building.

On June 22, 2015 construction will finally begin. Construction hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the possibility of some Saturdays.

To construct the additions to the buildings, we must excavate and install foundations. We want to advise the residents in the surrounding area that this work is quite noisy. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your understanding.
SHS Girls in Tech
Secaucus High School Girls Sharpen Tech Skills
SHS students Thessolanica DeLeon, Iqra Ahmed, Juliet Nowak and Hanna Faye Canonigo attended the Girls in Technology Symposium hosted by Hudson County Community College in Jersey City. There the young technologists were able to participate in various activities including coding and discussion of various displays. 


Thessolanica’s project “Snapshots of Time” focused on the evolution of how lives were captured by cameras that date back to as early as the late 1920s. Her project reflected on the changing models of cameras through time and how each produced varying resolutions of captured memories that were promised to be kept and treasured. 
Iqra, Juliet and Hanna presented “The Evolution of Solar 
Panels”, which illustrated the history of the intriguing invention as well as the potential for solar panels in the near future.
