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 currently a junior at this school. I think if any one is interested in business this school is definitely it for you. There are many AP classes and many other types of classes such as journalism. Only thing is some students don't take advantage of it. And parents aren't involved that much

    This school was a fantastic academic choice for my daughter. I am pleased with the extracurricular activities that the school offers as well as the continued communication between the staff and the parents.

    You will never find a school that blesses their students more than Murry Bergtraum. This school gives students the real insight of what the business world is all about. It's amazing what teachers teach here. Shorthand Cisco Networking and other programs that friends of mine from other states in the country have never heard of. The principal is a great woman of excellent leadership and teachers here are nothing but excellent. If only this school were more selective of their students it would not have to deal with all the supposed 'terrible' influence from negative classmates. Even though in this school is is seen that the three groups of the intellectuals the average and the low performers all help out one another. It's quite a amazing enviornment. An excellent school overall.

    This school is an excellent school as per Academics. Students have various academic and athletic activities at hand. Parents rarely get involved and are unaware of what the school provides to the students. Tutoring is also available for those who need the extra help. Students fail to take advantages of all the academic programs and scholarships available to them. Parents must get involved.

    This school has excellent teachers but are treated very badly by most of the students. Kids don't care about education just music and stuff. The administration is very un-organized. They gave me classes that I already took in Junior High and did not let me change. This school isn't good. They should improve it by making speacial classes for the few (only about 10 or 20)90 averaging students and to give the correct classes to students.

    Excellent school. Especially in math and science. The only problem is that they dont give you the correct classes at times.

    Great school great location...wonderful teachers. This H.S. offers one of the best learning opportunities for students wanting to enter or learn more about the business field. The school could improve on providing students with college prep information such as selecting a college and financial aid.

    I'm currently a senior and I have thoroughly enjoyed my years here. It is a good school and it has some very excellent teachers. Any school is what you make it and I have chosen to make this time a fun and very educating one. I would recommend this school if you are dedicated and hard working.

    It was a good 4 years of my life. I learned a lot at Bergtraum. Great school education wise and they also have a good basketball program in this school. Congrats to the girls basketball team for winning State Championship again. You girls are great. Bergtraum also prepares you for the business world. I learned a great deal there to prepare me for the business world. Thanks alot!

    I am a graduate of Bergtraum and have gone to get my Associates degree. Bergtraum was a great stepping stone to get into the business world. I started out as a clerk and currently I'm a legal assistant. Bergtraum's keyboarding and steno classes helped soooo much.

  • (11 years ago)

    Both of my children went to this school. I have to say it was an excellent experience. They both were accepted to all of their college choices. I would definetly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a career in business or computers.
