Daugavpils Secondary School No.13 was founded in 1972 and now there are 714 students (School year 2015-2016). The school realizes four training programs. There is a music bias at school. Our students and teachers participate in local, national and international contests and festivals. Thanks to the contests and international projects we broaden our contacts with foreign partners and colleagues. To develop teaching methods, improve students’ learning motivation and improve the internationalization of the school five teachers (chemistry and natural science, music, maths, computer studies and English) will take part in the project “Professional Development of the Teachers of Daugavpils Secondary School No.13”. They will go to CLIL course in the United Kingdom (ADC College in London), „eLearning 2.0 & Social Media” (AcrossLimits in Malta), “Teaching through video making: creating and adapting visual resources. tt.vm” (Euro Pass Teacher Training Centre in Italy), "Action Methods Improving Motivation and Quality in Learning Environments" (European Bridges Consulting in Portugal).
