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.

    the school is very competitive in the negative sense. students are overlooked for their achievements and favoritism runs rampant in the system

  • (7 years ago)

    i do agree that the school is a bit old fashioned but as an alumnus of the school i have to say that going to that school has made me a much better person. all of the teachers are extremely nice and they all care about their students and treat them like they are their kids. also the music program of which i was personally in is exceptional and one of the best i have ever been in. now i have to agree that the school is a bit old fashioned (the building is 50 years old) and a lot of the more technological things are not as far along as other schools but it is still an amazing school that i would reccomend highly.

    This school is too old fashioned! It needs to become more open minded and modern to fit societies needs. It needs to offer more electives and have more after school days besides Tuesday & Thursday.
