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'm a former student of this school. I loved it there the teacher do whatever it takes to teach their students and it is a very safe place. I definitely recommend this school.

    well finally i get to explain how i feel about the school i useto attend .....its horrible the school looks like the government dosent give any funds but im pretty sure he does ...kids always must fund raise to get something nice in school...teachers dont really care anymore either the entire school system is terrible and they should be ashamed of themselves there is no money spent on the school they have no A.C in school thorough out the entire summer you feel so hot and sticky we dont have fans.
