About the Regents Common Core: As part of the Regents Reform Agenda, New York State has embarked on a comprehensive reform initiative to ensure that schools prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and in their careers. To realize the goals of this agenda, changes are occurring in standards, curricula, and assessments. The Board of Regents adopted the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy and Mathematics at its July 2010 meeting and incorporated New York-specific additions, creating the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS), at its January 2011 meeting. As a result, New York State is deeply engaged in a revision of the current State assessment program to measure the New York State P-12 CCLS. Additional information on the Common Core Regents rollout and content can be found here

Open Quote It's a school where most students who attend come from the poor working class. Most students are lacking discipline because their parents are most likely not college educated. There's a lot of bullying that goes unchecked in the school and it's sad to see that there are rumors spread of this being a zoned school teaching low standard education and how some parents who are educated avoid zoned schools by their willingness to drive, pick up and drop off their kids at far schools who have better teachers and smart and kind students. Bullying from this school mostly comes from poorer students who come from low income abusive households and hurt students who try to dress well and study hard. It's frustrating and it's an issue that is the fault of the department of education. Just look at public schools they are designed similarly like prisons. They don't look like the beautiful schools that were once built before. The food is awful because of the budget that permits only cheap frozen grade B meat. Gym equipment is not that diverse, so students have limited exposure to sports other than basketball or soccer. Teachers yell and verbally abuse students for "misbehaving" or not paying attention instead of considering household conditions/lifestyle or an underlying medical condition that is unknown to the family. The homework is basically busy work, its not specifically tailored to make sure students are really understanding the core subjects and skills they need. I wish the education department will reconsider how public schools spend the money that are given to them. There isn't enough connection going on. People lack love and compassion for the children and turn education into some numerical accounting budget thing and not making sure the students have a bright future. They are cheap because the federal government doesn't prioritize education over other issues. Close Quote

Open Quote You know, I always heard people say how bad this school is and everything.
How there is bullying, bad teacher quality, etc.

But, I find that to be untrue. In fact many of the teachers cares deeply about their students and teaches just fine. There's rarely any bullying involve. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
