C-NS increases rate of Advanced Regents grads

C-NS Principal James Froio announced that, over the course of the past few years, C-NS High School students graduating with Advanced Regents Diplomas has been on the rise.

"I am particularly pleased with the increase in enrollment for Math 11 by 129 more students than last year, this represents a 27 percent increase in one year," Froio said.

Froio said he believed that Math B was clearly the major hurdle for students in regards to obtaining an Advanced Regents Diploma in 2006-07 and believes the same for 2007-08. During that time he stated that in order to increase the number of students eligible for AD diplomas the school must increase the number of students following the traditional math track, Math 9, 10 and 11 and on the same hand decrease the number of students going into the Math Applications track. As the enrollment data showed, this is happening. Froio also believes that the district is making great strides fostering a more rigorous academic track that leads to an Advanced Regents Diploma.
