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.

    This school is a diamond in the rough. With small classrooms individualized instruction and access to programs like NYU summer classes SAT prep internships at places like JP Morgan and a full-time College Success Center FLH is on the move. I couldn't be prouder to work at such a place.

    Very dedicated staff but a lot of gang activities outside sometimes. A lot of kids graduated last year 2008
