Welcome to School #13!  Twitter

School Thirteen is located in the Athenia section of Clifton. This one hundred-year-old building continues to be the cornerstone of an active community. As a magnet school for Spanish- speaking and ESL students in Clifton, School Thirteen has been recognized by the state of New Jersey for the excellence of our Bilingual/ESL program for many years. Our 450 students come from all around the world and we celebrate this diversity with open arms and hearts.
We are excited to launch our “Positive Behavior Support in Schools,” or PBSIS, initiative in the 2019-2020 school year. We are proud Junior Mustangs with three universal school-wide expectations: kindness, respect, and safety.
The teachers at School Thirteen are dedicated, passionate professionals who work to create differentiated, rigorous learning environments for our students. We believe the foundation of our success lies in the fact that we instill a sense of family within our children. Though they may come from widely diverse cultures outside of the school, within the walls of School Thirteen we work as one for the betterment of all.
Parents and families are valued members of the School Thirteen community and we work in partnership to provide support and guidance for our learners. Our PTA is an active group of amazing volunteers who provide us with fabulous opportunities to learn, play, and have fun. Please join the PTA and share your time and talents with us!
