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.

    New Leadership New Resources it is very exciting. One of the most technologically advanced schools I have worked in.

    In all honesty this school is horrid. It lacks supplies which are necessary for the students growth. There are no textbooks there are no computers there are no extra curricular activities/ this school lacks motive and direction. It is best to avoid PNA while you still can

    You can tell a lot about a school by it's principal. Mr. Ivan Cohen new principal of PNA takes the reigns from former principal Dina Heisler who while well intended had such little control over the growth of the school that resulted in the school receiving a D on it's report card this year. Mr. Cohen who has inherited that D has already begun effecting positive changes in the tone of the school. Like Ms. Heisler Mr. Cohen is a visionary however Mr. Cohen's approach is more grounded prqactical and actionable. It's great to expect that all children will develop a love of learning. But this does not happen by hoping. Changing dispositions takes hard and organized work. These seem to be his areas of strength. He's organized has a clear vision and produces thoughtful benchmarks toward goals. His challenge will be to undo Ms. Heisler's lassez faire culture.
