The District is much too large and every building is overcrowded. Having put 1 child through this school that's enough for me! Beware of the best kept little secret...school safety! They don't allow the 'bad' things to go public because that would ruin their image of a great place to send your child. Check with the State Police and see just how much is kept hidden. However, if your child is an excellent athlete..this is your kind of school because that's all they're about. Just ask any parent you run into and they'll tell you, it's all about sports and being number 1. I feel sorry for those kids who excel with knowledge...you never hear about them!

Agree with the prior assessment. Rewards are far and many for overly athletic and the academics get lost in the shuffle. My child made high 90's all 4 years of school and was denied honor roll becuase she worked and had no community service. Not fair.

Given the school's fairly high socioeconomic makeup, its academic offerings are surprisingly meager. There is rampant grade inflation, which allows the school to boast that about 55% of its students make honor roll. The principal is a former policeman and seems much more interested in conformity and discipline than in fostering a rich academic environment. High academic achievers complain of a school culture that rewards and admires athletes and looks down on high achievers.

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.
