Fantastic cirriculum along with caring teachers, will always make a school system thrive.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 15, 2007

I cannot say enough about this school and all the help my child receives. My child has a 504 plan due to a disability, and the teachers have been exceptional along with the nurse, student services and the vice principal. Everyone is working as a team! She gets the extra help as needed without question. If something comes up I get either a phone call or an email the day they need me. I love the continuity of this school and the ancillary workers. This is great!

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.
