I have been here nearly two years, with children in elementary, middle and High school. I have had a great experience, most staff is caring and warm, academics are well taught, for advanced, and special needs. Glad we moved here . The transition was better than I thought. The only draw back was the school was too small for some of the national clubs we were previously involved in, but that is already changing. I would highly reccomen this school district.

I think that this high school and this district needs help, not just financially and in the physical appearance but what is going on in the district. We have been here in this district for over 20 years and have seen the district deteriorate. The elementary level is still okay although they too are feeling the heat of the 'STATE TESTS', such pressure, and level of competitiveness from what kids wear to how they speak. There is very little parental involvement and it's sad. At the high school level if people only knew what their kids were doing, maybe they'd take a look at their own home, family and realize what is important. It's not about the whole person or the growing stage of being a teen but around here,looking the other way! The Mathematics and Foreign language departments need serious help!!The special ed. department is a disaster!

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.
