Stanley G. Falk School’s primary focus is on student learning, with a commitment
to high expectations for success. Our goal is to provide students an education
congruent with New York State Learning Standards, as well as the student's
Individual Education Plan (IEP). Three pathways for academic programming are
offered to ensure students meet their post-secondary goals. All diplomas are
awarded from students' home school districts, and New York State and district
graduation requirements apply.
Regents – students are offered the opportunity, at the high school level, to
participate in a course of study leading to a Regents Diploma. Students are
prepared for the challenging New York State Regents Exams by actively engaging
in an academically rigorous course load while their individual learning needs
are met in a 6:1:1 setting.
