Read what the community has to say about Mercer County Technical School District programs.


“MCTS is a great community asset! I've had opportunities to view the simulation lab at the Health Careers Center, interact with instructors and interview (and hire) Health Occupations students at the Assunpink Center for pharmacy technician positions. Everyone is dedicated to turning our students that employers will want to hire.”

--Marsha Lynch, Area Manager, Workforce Initiatives, CVS Caremark


“Mercer County Technical Schools hold a very special place in my heart and always will.  I am where I am today, because of the school and the teachers who were my mentors.”

--Yolanda Stinger, Case Manager, Pavilions at Forrestal


“My daughter is enjoying her HVAC class, the students and most of all her instructor. Hats off to you all!”

--Nancy Distelcamp, Parent of Assunpink HVAC Student


“The whole staff at MCTS is great!  They don't just give students job and vocational skills, my sons learned life skills.”

--Angela Dixon, Parent of two Arthur R. Sypek Center Students


“Health Science Academy is a perfect fit for my daughter, because it offers a challenging curriculum, small class sizes and great teachers that care about their students.  The school's environment encourages the kids to strive for excellence!  I am glad that I chose HSA over the private school my daughter was going to attend.”

--Jeanette Ford, Parent of Health Science Academy Graduate


“Our son had a passion for cosmetology since he was in 6th grade. This has been a life transforming experience for him and us! The faculty and staff are highly trained, seasoned, caring professionals with a wealth of experiences and knowledge to equip our son to begin his career immediately upon graduation. Clearly, heeding to our son's creative and artistic skills and sending him to Mercer County Technical Schools was the right decision.”

--Robin Bridges Johnson, Parent of Assunpink Cosmetology Graduate
