Kudos to Volunteers from BCTS/Paramus Green Building Trades and Landscape Design Programs
On Thursday, September 15, volunteers helped construct a playground for students at the Windsor Bergen Academy in Ridgewood, a school for students with special needs who did not have an outdoor play space. We are proud of our BCTS/Paramus instructors–Andee Dixon, Tim Reagan, and Marc Levy—and our Green Building Trades and Landscape Design students Elijah Lockwood, Andrew Concepcion, Dominick Tulipani, Michael Mayerchak, Ryan Blake, Kevin Henning, Kenneth Kasper, Salvatore Barila, James May, Thomas Mirabella, Christopher Pellegrino, and Ian Burns for contributing their skills and talents to such a worthwhile cause.

A free public high school of choice for Bergen County residents, Bergen County Technical High School/ Paramus falls under the auspices of the Bergen County Technical High School District. The Paramus campus provides students with a strong academic and technical foundation to pursue either postsecondary educational opportunities or entrance into the workforce upon graduation. Unlike most traditional public high schools, our students learn in classrooms and career-specific technical labs that mirror future academic and professional environments. Whether in physics or automotive lab, our students engage in collaborative interdisciplinary activities that foster interpersonal, communication, and critical thinking skills. Bergen County Technical High School/Paramus recognizes the need to prepare students for entrance into a highly competitive global economy that is continuously evolving. To that end, students are immersed in applied learning experiences that utilize the latest technologies, equipment, and facilities that will define tomorrow’s workplace.
Bergen County Technical High School/Paramus is committed to serving the needs of students with both Full-Time and Shared-Time Programs.
Happy New Year!
The staff at Bergen Tech, Paramus has returned from the winter recess energized and ready to meet new challenges in 2017. We are joined by two new staff members- Duane Burrell (teacher of business) and Ian Moran (collaborative teacher). They are excited to start their careers at BT and have been welcomed by the community at large.
Looking back, it is easy to see that 2016 was a great year at Bergen Tech, Paramus. Students used the skills they have been acquiring in the technical areas to help build homes for those in need, produce artwork that has been shown all over the state, cook award winning meals, and harvest food that has fed scores of Bergen County residents. We are looking forward to watching our students continue to grow and engage the community to make a better Bergen County.
The staff at Bergen Tech, Paramus remain committed to providing educational experiences that lead to the accomplishments described above. We will continue to create an environment that enables all students to reach their highest potential and look forward to working with families and the community to enrich our students’ lives.
Best wishes for a great 2017!
