A new world-class, science-focused public high school known as Liberty Science Center High School will soon begin construction within SciTech Scity in Jersey City. Developed under a public-private partnership between the City of Jersey City, County of Hudson, Hudson County Schools of Technology, and Liberty Science Center, the parties will share financial cost alongside philanthropic donors. The school will be built adjacent to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City and offer science, technology, engineering, and math classes for 400 students in grades 9-12. Students will have access to a work education program with over 200 technology startup companies that will also be a part of SciTech Scity.
The Liberty Science Center is moving forward with plans to develop an eight-story, 400,000-square-foot mixed-use academic complex on the 16-acre site at 222 Jersey City Boulevard, in Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor section. Dubbed SciTech Scity, it will include the Liberty Science K-12 school, which will likely consist of charter, vocational, and/or private schools, Jersey Digs reported. There will also be roughly 160,000 square feet of research and collaborative office space, called Edge Works.
