Horrible school, bad principal, worst teaching staff, crazy kids, daily fights, disorganized, no parental contact... they try to do too much and in the process forget about making sure kids are LEARNING. no sports! no fun activities. they treat my kid like he's been in jail. don't go here.

* In 2010-2011 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English language arts, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, earth science, physics and several foreign languages. The results for English language arts, math, living environment, chemistry, earth science, physics, global history and geography, and US history and government are displayed in GreatSchools profiles. 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.
