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.

    horrible not a good learning system and teachers are very slow teachers. Kids need to have a fast learning pace. If kids don't have a fast learning pace ow will they catch on. Another thing security guards are very stuck up and rude sort of like they don't like their job or doesn't get paid enough to work there.

    My child is new to the school and so far everything seems to be working well. I am definately getting involved in the school as a parent and hope more parents would do the same. the principal is dynamic and the teachers seem to be very nice to the children. my son is getting involved in many extra curricular activities shich he ws always reluctant to do in the past. I love that he is becoming part of the school.

    George Westinghouse is like a family. Everyone loves and cares for each other.The principal is energetic and always on the move. The parent coordinator works very hard is very helpful to parents. I would advice all parents to get involved in the PTA. great things are happening there.

    Westinghouse High school is one of the best school. it has greatly become better from where it once was and everything is better. I am proud to call myself a Westinghouse graduate. Teachers really care about the students and only want the best. They have connections with some of the best college prep programs including pace university upward bound and I-mentor program. Both of which I took part in.
