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.

    My child is a freshmen and so far she likes this school. Listening to some past student convinced me that Washington Carver is the way to go.

  • (6 years ago)

    This school is very nice and offers many programs the teachers encourage the kids and the children are somewhat motivated to work.only bad thing is that some teachers give up very easily and children are very distruptive and rude.
