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.

    Impressive School. I have visited this school for an open house session and was totally impressed.

    Of all the schools that my daughter attended in the past 8 years this is the best by far. The teachers and staff of the Urban Assemble School for Law and Justice makes every effort to keep parents highly informed about the children's progress. The advisors pay strict attention to the students and report when necessary to parents. They work with each child to ensure that they get the help that they need. After my daughter's first sememter I am happy to report that she is very excited about this school. Before she started this school she complained about every thing. Now she looks forward to attending school every day. She has already made the honor roll. Thums Up

    This is a great small school. My daughter is a freshman (Fall 2006) and on her 1st progress reports she got pretty good grades! She was an average student in middle school but she is really excelling in high school. I attribute it to the small classes personalize attention & great after school activities.
