Regents Exams (RE)

In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English language arts, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, earth science, physics and several foreign languages. The results for English language arts, math, living environment, chemistry, earth science, physics, global history and geography, and US history and government are displayed in GreatSchools profiles. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

    It is the 1st green school on Long Island.This is the 1st year that my children have attend this school and we couldn't be happier with it.From the office staff to the janitors and everywhere in between have made my childrens experience at Hampton bays Middle School a great experience! The teachers take time to TEACH.My son went from making 20's in math in his old school to making 90's!! That says it all!

    I have a son who graduated from Hampton Bays. The education he was afforded prepared him for a very successful college experience. It was rich with academics and extracurricular activities. I recommend this district wholeheartedly and without hesitation.

    I am a student here and I love this school. Although there are a few cliques with the stdents it isn't the schools fault and they treat all kids the same. Very few students get detention; I don't know what the other people are talking about. The only problem is that the school clocks are 5 minutes ahead so students are late.

    I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! This school is the best school I have ever been to and i have moved about seven times. I will say that the awnser to all problems with the studens is detention however the student's that are there are all really nice. Teachers set high standards for all student's with confidence in each and every one. Overall in my oponion there is no better school.

    Having had 2 children graduate and one still in middle school I am very happy with skilled teachers helpful with children of all capacities. I am proud to send my child to a school with much parent involvement and teacher participation with the parent!

    There are a few quality teachers in this school but for the most part they are mediocre at best. They can only teach to the 'ideal' students and have no interest in teaching any other type of student. Their answer is detention. It is a very cliquey faculty and they don't realize how good they have it. Salaries are too high for what they have to offer. Plenty of after school activities available. Parent involvement is asked for but not really wanted. If I had to do it over again and if I knew six years ago what I know now there is no way I would subject my children to this school!
