Our Mission Statement

Community School 13 believes in challenging ourselves to strive for excellence and encourages others to do the same.  We will accomplish this by respecting all members of our community, through modeling and demonstrating positive work ethics and behaviors, and by achieving rigorous academic goals!

Annual Fun Day Was A Huge Success!

          Since September, students have been working towards being chosen as the Student of the Month in their classrooms. Students are chosen based on rigorous criteria such as citizenship, perseverance, respect for the school community, striving toward academic goals, and being a model of the Community School 13 Mission Statement. The Student of the Month/Spirit Committee, as well as the Box Tops Committee have been working diligently all year to fund raise to make this event possible. The Community School 13 PTA also assisted in fundraising events. 250 students (10 students from each class, one per month) were chosen throughout the year and rewarded with a monthly breakfast and the opportunity to participate in Fun Day. The students participated in face painting, a bouncy castle, inflatable slide, dunk tank, the Westchester Fun Van, and were treated to pizza and ice pops. A great day was had by all! Students are encouraged to strive for this wonderful event each year!

Congratulations Community School 13!
Dear parents, teachers, administrators, and students - you all should be proud of the effort you have been making to raise our test scores! Community School 13 is no longer in danger of falling into receivership! In late February, we learned that our school has improved from "priority" status to "focus" status, and we are close to achieving "good standing" status! Good job, everyone!
