PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Mrs. Patricia Clark-Jeter

Congratulations to the staff and students who will be joining our Cougar Family during the 2014-2015 school year. This school year will prove to be another exciting year as we continue our quest of ‘Aspiring to Greatness.’ Over the last several years our school has achieved many exceptional accomplishments through our phenomenal academic, Career and Technical Education (CTE), and extracurricular programs. As a result of the collaborative efforts of parents, staff, students, and members of the community Essex County North 13th Street Tech was recognized by US News as one of America’s Best High Schools for the fifth year in a row.

Contrary to the historical foundation of vocational schools, our learning community is highly committed to ensuring every student is prepared for college, career, and life. Our dedicated and collaborative staff is committed to continuous professional growth and to challenging students to reach their greatest potential. Through the implementation of the Common Core State Standards our students acquire 21st Century skills by engaging in critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical processes using modern technology all while spending a portion of the school day acquiring real-world CTE skills.

We are constantly looking for the best of the best to join our Cougar Family. Space is limited; however, we encourage perspective students to submit an application and perspective staff to submit a resume.

Let’s Go Cougars!
