Posted May 11, 2006

My son is graduating June 2006 and I feel that the quality of education he received was excellent. He had some special needs that had been addressed and safety nets were established. The teachers and counselors were excellent to work with and the Special Education department is superb. He was encouraged to follow his dreams and will be attending college in the fall. We are so proud of his accomplishments and are very grateful to the district for their part in his success!

I strongly feel that racism is present in this predominately 'white' school. I also feel that teachers lack responsibility and have very little respect for the students.

About the tests

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.
