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 daughter currently attends this school and let me tell you on orientation night the staff put up a good show. Children wonder around the halls. My daughter finds it difficult to focus on class work; because there are students who feel school is a place to hangout and are inconsiderate to their peers. The principal lacks structure and follow-up skills. Uniform are not worn after the school emphasized school uniform. My child will be transferred from this school.
