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.

    My daughter just started this year no complaints yet. Would like more information flowing my way thru email or weekly updates and newsletters

    MHS was a great school. Teachers are very helpful especially when it comes times for SATs and preparing for college. At the time the school seemed very small because of our small class sizes but since graduating from college this year going to a small school has many benefits including developing close relationships with the faculty and having more personal interactions that help in the enhancement of ones character.

    Malverne High School has only 510 kids in the 4 year High School. A very diverse community delivers one of the best educational experiences any child can have. We have lived in 3 communities and none came close to providing the life skills academic skills great sports extracurriculars plus one of the best competition HS bands in NY. The school and each class is so small that the students do more things than you think is possible. Full 120 piece band full athletic teams in every sport. Socially active every national club Black Studies active NHS SAAD Model UN and Congress etc. Fantastic school teachers and student body. Our daughter is in college now and still comes home to see friends and the band when possible. (Love our town too)

    I went to Malverne High School and graduated in 2001 I have finished a bachelors degree in Marine Science and will have a masters in education in the spring of 2008 Malverne high school was a great place to be and be from and I have many fond memories of walking the halls going to class and socializing. The Teachers are dedicated and truly work for the students best interests. I am proud to say I went there. Vicky Rochford

    Malverne could be a wonderful school but I find it lacking in administrative leadership and vision. There is too much emphasis on grades and not enough creativity in most classes. Although I have to commend the Music department teachers and students for their dedication and hard work. It truly shows in their presentations.
