How a Group of NYC High Schools Ditched Most Regents Exams -- and Created Better College Students

By Helen Zelon Wednesday April 2, 2014

Of all the students in New York City public high schools, about 60 percent end up with diplomas. And of those graduates, about 60 percent — roughly one in every three that start high school — eventually graduate from a four-year college.

Those numbers are an improvement from the turn of the millennium, when only half of city high school students graduated, despite less stringent requirements. But one group of city schools routinely outstrips these less-than-lofty numbers. The 28 schools in the New York Performance Standards Consortium network boast graduation, college-going, and college retention rates that routinely top city, state, and national averages, with a student body that is as diverse in income and ethnicity as the city as a whole. And they do it almost entirely without standardized exams, substituting student portfolios and oral presentations for most of the required state Regents exams.

"Intriguing Alternative to Rating Schools by Tests"

Jay Mathews, an education writer for the Washington Post, has written a column about the Consortium's system of performance based assessment (PBATs) today and its success in preparing kids for college.

This year, as a NYC Outward Bound School, we took part in the first 5-Borough College Application March, where our Seniors marched to the post office to deliver their college applications with the support of the rest of the school behind them cheering them on!
