  • This is a really good school if u do your work n dont play around.i came n there 2009 with only about 12 or 15 credits and i graduated january 2010 with all my 44 credits and a regents diploma.and u do get ur credits faster here then in a regular school, they have little things for u to do to get your credits, like online classes for example or different after school activities. the (...) is mad cool ((shout outs to ms hartnett)) she helps out a lot with the kids. Only thing that make this school bad is the kids, but if u apply yourself and dont play around youre out of there in no time :)
