Regents Exams (RE)

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. 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.

    Worst High School in New York. Students are forced to do exactly what the principal says even if is not mandatory. They have to take extra classes just to make the school look better. Students will be punished if they refuse to do what the principals want even if is not for the well being of the student. In this school learning while having healthy fun is considered a crime and whichever teacher is found doing this would be fired. Students have to stay extra hours at school taking online courses that are not necessary but will make school look better. The principal treats the students as if they were criminals and will not respect them if they are not one of the top ten students. Equality and fairness does not exist here I will never recommend this school to any parent that loves their children.

    One of the worst High Schools in the Bronx. Students are forced to eat lunch at 10 AM and must take unnecessary classes even if they don't wish to. The school's principal treats the students as if they were veterans in the Army.

    It is an excellent school for Spanish-speaking ELL's that prepares students to be bi-literate by the time students graduate.
