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.

    As A Graduate Of This School I Can Say The Hospitality Is HORRIBLE .. This School Is So Unorganized And In All Honesty I Blame The Principal .. Shes Always Late. She Had A False Advertising On Cap And Gown Pick Up .. She Fired Most Of The Important Teachers And To Top It All Off The Rules And Regulations She Makes Are Never Understandable.. The School Is Just Like A Jail And Us As Students Get Treated Like Prisoners Its So Sad To Go To A School Better Yet Graduate From A School Like This Cameras Up Everywhere Metal Detectors We Get Treated With No Freedom .. The Principal Spent Some Of Their Budget Money Just To Get A Big Tv Mounted On Her Wall To Watch The Whole School .. Talk About Good Spending

    This is a good school that is only getting better. There is a core of young teachers that truly care about the students and the direction of the school. The athletics specifically the football program have become a driving force to keeping students on track. Since the inception of the football program the graduation rates have risen steadily year by year.
