Need more strict enforcement of rules and dicipline among students. Teachers are good, but too many children per classroom. Parent involvement is low. Slightly overcrowed for the student population, needs more services available to students.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. 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.
