The new school year will see Explore 2000, Hudson County Schools of Technology’s middle school, opening in a new building. After sharing space in County Prep High School in Jersey City for 18 years, Explore 2000 now has a building of its own.
The Redevelopment Agency of Jersey City and the Hudson County Executive’s Office have partnered to help Explore 2000 Middle School relocate to its own learning facility located at the Community Education and Recreation Center- 180 9th Street in Jersey City, allowing it the opportunity to expand its student population over a 5-year period.
Starting in September 2015, Explore 2000 will add stimulating project-based curricula in the areas of STEM, active citizenship, character education and the environment to its traditional learning labs in core subject areas, all integrated through thematic units and meeting New Jersey’s common core curriculum standards under the guidance of certified teachers serving as academic facilitators.
The students and staff of Explore 2000 are beyond excited and appreciative for this opportunity to open in our own facility. In doing so, we are finally able to expand and offer our unique learning environment to more Hudson County students.
In addition to Title I Enrichment in Mathematics and Language Arts, after school activities include Extra-curricular Workshops and a variety of Wellness Programs.
The Hudson County Schools of Technology will formally welcome Explore 2000 Middle School to their new home during the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony scheduled on Thursday, September 17, 2015.
