Hey students, can you feel the love? Your wonderful teachers and principals really want you to do well on your tests! Watch our inspirational video (filmed by Ms. O'Neill and Ms. Quezada).

Want to see evidence of how School 13 is ready to ROCK THE TEST? Ms. O'Neill's and Ms. Spagna's students decorated t-shirts with motivational messages for each other to do well on the New York State ELA and Math assessments! Ms. O'Neill and Ms. Spagna even wore extra special t-shirts letting their students know how much they love them, and to show how confident they are that their students will ROCK THE TEST!!!

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!
