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 have been in alden school for 2 yrs now and i have enjoyed it very much the teachers are caring and understand some of the students background. they do not put a student down they support them very much. i have enhoyed it so far so i cant wait for my next two years too come. we might not have all the fancy stuff like other schools but having a small school with a small commity you make alot of freinds. i woud suggest this school to any parents looking for the child to have a hands on consept of the subject that they are learning.

    This scool is awesome. The food is great the teachers are not boring so I always pay attention. We have two courtyards in which we are allowed to go into for a peaceful lesiure during the day. The library is brand new and I believe it has 50 brand new laptops for classes to research on. Personally my 3 years here have been excellent and I've never got into a fight.

    I have child number 7 going through this school and I also am a past graduate and I have always been impressed by what this small school can offer the children and how caring the whole school faculty is. It might not have everything the big schools have in some respects but it has more than the big schools in other respects. The teachers know all students by name not number and most of the parents too. My compliments to all.
