The Camden County Technical School's Pennsauken Campus (Penn Tech) was recognized nationally for its high level of student achievement and its commitment to educating students.

The school was one of 74 in the state to receive recognition from US News and World Report. It earned a bronze medal in the magazine’s nationwide ranking of test scores, college readiness and student to teacher ratio. 

“It comes as no surprise that this school has been honored on a national level,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Technical School District, said in a release issued by the county Monday morning. “We are very proud of our dedicated employees and the accomplishments of our outstanding students that make this a great school.”

This is the third time the school has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report.

“This recognition is thanks to the dedicated effort put forth by our students and staff,” Camden County Technical School District Superintendent Pat Fitzgerald said.  “They continue to demonstrate their 'Penn Tech Pride' in all that they do in preparation for college and careers.”  

From a vocational school that opened with 400 students in 12 trade areas in 1928, the Camden County Technical School District has grown to be one of the largest and most comprehensive technical high schools in the nation. 

The Pennsauken Campus is located on Browning Road, where more than 800 students are enrolled in 15 different career areas.  

All students are offered a full-range of athletics and activities to complement their education as well as the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school.

Seniors are offered the opportunity to participate in several school-to-career and cooperative education programs. Graduates of Camden County Technical Schools may continue their education at the post-secondary level or obtain employment in the field for which they were trained through the job placement office.
