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.

    This school is a great atmosphere and has something for everyone. You meet new people and learn how to spell. Teachers are phenominal.

    I think that the first review of the high school is an absolute joke. As an alum of the school I was extremely prepared for college (more than most of my college friends). As far as the athletic programs they are among the best in the area. Most of our sports compete year in and year out for Conference and Sectional titles. This consistency is rare. As someone that is currently an Assistant Athletic Director at an NCAA Division I program I can attest to that. I played 3 sports at Catskill and went to college on a half academic-half athletic scholarship. I have the great teachers and coaches of Catskill to thank. Rob Bogardus

    As an alumni who is now an owner of a successful business I refute the prior review. Catskill High school opened doors for me and many others. The teachers care a great deal about their students. Joyce Notarnicola who teaches French now upkeeps a website bravo Joyce. I still remember the medieval SS project calculus and challenging English classes. Our band led by Mr. Cash traveled the US won national awards and produced accomplished musicians. Sure it's public and funds are an issue but where isn't it? It's safe clean and well worth your tax dollars. It's small town living at it's best and I highly recommend it for your children. Oh and as for the sports program I see Mr. Schmidt is the athletic director and now there's no wonder why I've seen the cross country team finish tops in the section recently and the basketball team is 18-2 this year. Plus I am estatic to hear about the new soccer fields tennis courts and track three sports I played. I'd love to go back and do it all over again.
