Message from the Principal
Dear Grover Cleveland Parents and Family:
On Tuesday April 7, The New York State Board of Regents made the decision to cancel the June Regents Examinations. Please read the attached letter from Chancellor Richard Carranza carefully as it details the policy for students who were scheduled to take exams in June 2020.
See highlights below:
- -Seniors who needed exams in order to graduate and who were scheduled to take an exam necessary for graduation in June 2020 and who have taken and passed the course that culminates with the specific exam will have these exams waived as a graduation requirement.
- -Seniors who were scheduled to take the Language Other than English (LOTE) exam and/or an exam required for an Advanced Regents Diploma will have the exam requirement waived, providing they intended to take the exam in June, have passed the necessary course that culminates in the exam or are currently enrolled in the course, or have already taken the exam and did not pass the exam after having successfully completed the course.
- -All students currently enrolled in a course that culminates in a Regents exam will have the exam waived provided they successfully complete the course requirements.
Please read the attached letter for more information. Please reach out to your child's guidance counselor via e-mail with any questions you may have. In light of these changes, I cannot emphasize how important it is for your child to remain engaged and to complete the course requirements successfully.
Marc A. Pascente
Principal Grover Cleveland High School

At Grover Cleveland High School, we believe students learn best when cognitively engaged in inquiry-based work through challenging and rigorous curricula that motivates them to formulate questions, think critically, evaluate, problem-solve and engage with one another in meaningful discourse and analysis.
We will implement rigorous instruction that is culturally responsive, delivered by a caring and dedicated staff that facilitates student engagement and discourse in a supportive and challenging learning environment.
We will foster an inclusive environment where diverse learners have equal access to instruction and graduate prepared to be civic-minded and engaged citizens of our school community and beyond and to thrive in the college and career of their choosing.
We are large comprehensive public high school that offer many opportunities and pathways for students success.
We are a student-centered school deeply committed to the philosophy of creating life-long learners. Our goal is to prepare students to be productive, pro-active members of society. Our students are challenged to excel in both academic and extra-curricular programs. They are encouraged to explore, experiment and question. The faculty and staff of Grover Cleveland expect our students to meet high academic and behavioral standards. Therefore, we provide every possible means of support to help students meet and surpass those standards.
We encouraged students to be physically active and engage in sport activities. Besides housing a pool in the main building, the Grover Cleveland High School campus also contains an attached softball field, as well as a newly renovated multi-sport field a few block away where baseball, handball, softball, soccer, tennis, and track and field can be played. Here at Grover Cleveland High School we firmly believe in teaching the whole child, academically, socially, and physically.

Unique high school swim program teaches students lifesaving lessons
"Students at one New York high school are learning how to swim for the first time while also training to be lifeguards. The students are able to use their jobs as lifeguards to save money for college and help their family members in need. Their coach says the best part is watching the lifesaving lessons pay off in and out of the pool."
The New Trend:
E-cigarettes and Vaping
Grover Cleveland High School caters to the needs and interests of our students. Clubs can be academic, athletic or social in nature. Forming a club is easy. Students simply have to gather at least 10 interested students and gain approval from the Coordinator of Student Activities and/or the principal.
Key Club: Key Club students positively impact the community by engaging in community-based events throughout the year, which not only helps improve the community at large, but also helps build leadership abilities and bolster their resumes for college and career.
Cheer: Currently being run as a club, our Cheer program is well-on-its way to becoming a competitive sport. Cheer not only challenges our students physically and mentally, but also promotes teamwork, character building, and academic excellence.
Robotics: The Robotic Club gather students who are interested in learning about and working with robots. It is competition driven club where teams of students must design and build a robot that can compete against opponents from other high schools in a series of specific challenges.
