High Technology High School, or HTHS, founded in 1991, is a four-year Magnet public high school located in Lincroft, New Jersey, United States, operated as a cooperative effort between the Monmouth County Vocational School District (MCVSD) and Brookdale Community College. It is a pre-engineering academy, offering courses such as Introduction to Engineering and Design, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and Principles of Engineering. It is a member of the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology. The school has been accredited since 1995 by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools.[3]

In its 2013 report on “America’s Best High Schools", The Daily Beast ranked the school 16th in the nation among participating public high schools and 1st among schools in New Jersey.[4] According to 2011 Newsweek statistics, High Technology High School students registered an average SAT score of 2145,[5] the highest of any U.S. high school; overall, Newsweek ranked HTHS 18th nationally and the top high school in New Jersey.[5] In 2011, HTHS was ranked Number 1 for Best High Schools for Math & Science in U.S. News & World Report,[6] and in 2013, the school was ranked the twelfth best high school overall in the United States by U.S. News.[7]

The school opened its doors in 1991 with a sophomore class, later adding a freshman class in the fall of 1995. The student population is kept relatively small, with typically 60-75 students per class year, allowing the school to maintain a low student–teacher ratio.[8]

As of the 2010-11 school year, the school had an enrollment of 268 students and 24.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.17:1. There were 2 students (0.7% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 1 student (0.4% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[2]
