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.

    I am a teacher at this school. Most teachers do care. We give up so much of our time to try to help. There are six marking periods; we do communicate that fact to students and the parents whom we can reach. Teacherease is updated weekly and we do make students aware of the regents scores and exams.

    HSMP has the potential to be a great school. I believe that most of the teachers care about their students but not all. I believe that most of the children want to succeed in life but not all. If they could weed those people out it would be a much happier place. I think the school communications needs improvement. From the beginning of the school year I believe parents and students should be informed that there are four semesters two of which go on the child's college transcript. They should also make them aware of all the regents that are needed and the grade which is considered to be college ready. When regents prep is going on if the child is not scoring well I believe the teachers should reach out to all involved to make sure the child is getting the proper help. We want our kids to be college ready not just to pass. Teacherease is a very helpful tool. I beleive it should be mandatory and that teachers should update them daily...especially if the children will be penalized for not submitting work in a timely fashion. Some very smart children need to be micro-managed for whatever the reason and that could definitely help to increase their grades.
