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.

    Here while results matter the learning process is more important. As a result students walk away with more than just a transcript with numbers; they leave with a better understanding of what it takes to be a successful learner.

    This is a great school for children that have given up and just want to drop out. They help them stay in school they get counselors and everyone is so friendly. My son had dropped out and we thought it was hopeless and on 6/26/2008 we will be the proud parents of a high school graduate. Our son had an excellent counselor! From the security desk the office staff and the teachers everyone is extremely polite and helpful. If I could I would give them 10 stars.
