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.

Community ratings & reviews

    The teachers are decent and try very hard to provide a good learning environment. The administrative staff at this school needs to be removed. The principal has been there too long and attempts to remove him have failed thus far. Bullying goes unchecked despite teachers efforts to communicate with the administration. The overall environment is intimidating. 504 Education plans are not consistantly followed. If you have a child with certain special education needs this may not be a very good place for them. Music and art programs have seen significant cuts and Varsity football was cut last year and may or may not return. If your child has had any behavior issues in the past prepare for them to be promptly labeled as trouble. If moving to the area do your research and consider other districts.

    JHS is not without its faults ( as any high school is ) but overall it has a good strong faculty and great kids. There are many more activities offered to our students than at other surrounding districts and our students are accepted to many of the top colleges in the northeast.

    School needs to sort out their priorities stop focusing on student behavior so much and focus more on student grades.
