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 believe that Great Neck North High School has provided the right environment for my son to succeed where he was unable to do so in an inclusive school setting. The Principal Bernard Kaplan and the staff provide the type of environment that enables students to learn using the skills that they have rather then being force to comprehend with a method that will not work for them. By working individually in establishing an education plan and managing it throughout the year with the teachers and parents Great Neck North High School is successful. I would recommend Great Neck North High School to all parents who are looking for a better way to educate their children.

    Great Neck North High is one of the best schools in the US. Its quality of academic programs is usually very good and the extracurricular activities are available to the students. Teachers are supportive some more than others. However its sports program is way too hard. They need to loosen up a little bit and give the kids a rest. They're only high schoolers! Other than that great school.
