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.

    All schools have their flaws I never wanted my son to attend Bread and Roses but I'm so happy he did . He graduated this past June and leaves for College today. His teachers along with Mrs. Cox and Mr. Ali fought with him tooth and nail because they saw his potential. For four years he gave them the hardest way to go but they stuck in there with him I can't thank them enough for that . I'm so sorry to see this School close.

    although our school is not the best the one thing we have is unity and pride of who we are and where we come from. I am a senior i graduate this year 2010 and i love the people and administration here!

    I believe this school is very promising parents just need to keep working along with the staff to help enforce all the rules the uniform idea was the best one ever and the curriculum is very good.
