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 is my last year here at LoMA and I can say it's been a great experience. I made a lot of new friends and met many helpful staff and teachers. I hope it continues to do well and grants many more students with plenty of opportunities.

    Lower Manhattan Arts Academy (LoMA) is still in it's infancy stage and continues to be a work in progress as the class of 2010 was only its 2nd. However the progress and accolades achieved by this school in that time span have been nothing short of amazing; it is one of NYC's top 10 performing high schools Teachers go the distance to insure the success of every student. LoMA offers fairly rigorous (Physics Calculus AP and college classes) curriculum for a small school. The school leader is thoughtful and effective a good principal; not one to back down from challenges by the time my child graduates in 2013 he will be a highly effective leader and a GREAT PRINCIPAL' I love this school; most importantly my child does too
