Posted October 2, 2014

I came to USA after graduating from high school in China and chose to enter this high school while improving my English. The students are very diverse, I can see various costumes from different cultures in the hallway. Some of the teachers I have met are extremely knowledgeable, funny patient and inspiring, although many of the courses are too slow for me. Students are treated equally, no matter how well they can speak English, or whether they have legal status. Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day High School will become my precious memory.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
