After being canceled a few times during the pandemic, the yearly New York Regents Exams returned last year to test students in English and math.

And as you would expect, several Capital Region schools performed EXCELLENTLY, landing at #1 in several subject categories on a list of more than 500 New York school districts based on scores attained on the standardized test.

According to New York Upstate, the tests measure student proficiency in English/language arts, algebra I and II, and geometry. Proficiency is based on students that score a 3 or above, and several local school districts hit 100 percent proficiency in the subject areas tested! The great news is statewide, a very long list of school districts hit 90 percent proficiency or above.
