The Trentonian – Senate President Steve Sweeney and Senator Shirley Turner joined lots of Trenton city and school district officials for the ribbon cutting for the new Trenton Central High School Friday. The $155 million project was funded through the Schools Development Authority, with construction starting in early 2016.

“One of the most cherished responsibilities of government is ensuring our students have the resources they need to succeed,” said Senator Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland) in a press release from New Jersey Senate Democrats. “Students should never have to deal with leaky roofs, buckling floors or mold in their classrooms. Unfortunately, this was the reality of Trenton Central High School when it closed its doors in 2014.

“The future is bright for the students attending the new Trenton Central High School. This state-of-the-art facility provides students with valuable resources to help them reach their full potential throughout their academic careers.”

“It means so much to me to see Trenton Central High School reopened as an educational destination our community can be proud of,” said Senator Turner (D-Hunterdon/Mercer) said in the press release. “I am thankful for the Schools Development Authority for recognizing the potential of this wonderful building and for acknowledging the adversity facing the students of Trenton. I know great minds will reach great heights within these walls.”
