Regents Exams (RE)

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. 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.

    My daughter goes to this school and have been there since the 9th grade. This school is horrible. There is no discipline in this school. Within the three years that my daughter was there the school had been shutdown on several occasions from a weapons being brought in to the school. Two principals have walked out on the students in mid semester. The children are allowed to wander the halls with no respect for authority. When my daughter failed the 10 grade and should of had summer school I was told there was no money in the budget for special ed and was not able to go to another school for it. She was told she could make up her credits by going to pm school the following year. Pm school didn't start until March in which then she was told she didn't need pm school. with 44 credits needed to graduate 12 grade and them just passing her to the 11th when she obviously should have been left back in the 10th grade how is she suppose to get the remaining 22 credits that is needed if there is no money in the budget for help with special ed students.

    How can a parent contact a teacher if there is no email portal. Other school's web page allows one to contact teachers via email. Please look into this matter.

    As a paretn of a 9th grade student entering 10 grade I feel Wings Academy does not have a handle on College readiness. I feel preparation should have begun in 9th grade.

    I went to Wings Academy and I have to say that I'm going to miss Wings. Many teachers there are nice and I hope that Wings keeps going with the great job they have been doing since the beginning.
