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.

Community ratings & reviews

    This school has a great number of outstanding activities for students. The music program is particularly outstanding. The jazz and marching band components are easily among the best in the entire state. My child was involved in music drama and sports. Most of the treachers are very dedicated and appreciate the high quality of students they are priviliged to teach. As a relatively affluent district it does not have much economic diversity but it does have quite a bit of ethnic diversity. Parental involvement and support for both the school and students is very high and is a significant reason for the success this school continues to experience. My child was accepted to a world class university after attending school in New Hartford. My child greatly enjoyed the social environment and has a wealth of very good friends from having attended school in New Hartford.

    New Hartford Senior High School is a great school to send your children. There is not much in the area but the school system is fantastic. The advanced placement courses are outstanding and the teachers are great. Some colleges add on 5 points to a students GPA is they know they are a graduate of New Hartford.

    The largest problem that parents may find is with other children. Over-privildeged and under-supervised New Hartford kids can be especially creul. The homogeneous community also has little to offer by way of diversity. However almost everyone will be able to find at least one friend activity or mentor. Teachers are very involved classes can be as challenging or unchallenging as you want. I made a few great friends during my time at NH had good times with the soccer team and even learned a little too.
