2013 Blue Ribbon School



September 24, 2013

Dear P.S. 46 Community,

It is with great pleasure and extreme pride that I can announce that U.S. Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan recognized P.S. 46 Queens, The Alley Pond School, as one of the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools.  This award is based on our overall academic excellence and our progress in improving student academic achievement.

Secretary Duncan said, “Excellence in education matters and we should honor the schools that are leading the way to prepare students for success in college and careers.  National Blue Ribbon schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world-class education.” 

This award embodies the efforts and dedication of every member of the P.S. 46 staff and the involvement of all its parents, guardians, and caregivers.  This accolade exemplifies that “Joined Together in Excellence” is not a slogan; it’s our absolute mission for every student, every day.
