Alternative Grade System.
Here at North Queens Community High School, we forgo traditional grade levels for what we call the "House System." The way that it works is that based on the number of credits and passed Regents exams that a student has, they will be placed into one of four houses. As they earn more credits and pass more Regents exams, they ascend to higher houses, until they reach House 4 (the last house before graduation).
"It helps students aspire to next House as quickly as possible."
LTW Work Program
Paid internships are available through the Learning to Work Program, which will help build important career skills. Students interns are required to participate after school where work readiness discussions, and technology training are held Monday and Wednesday. There are a variety of internships available to students. Students on internships work with children, in offices, at cultural institutions, businesses such CVS, Marshalls, GAP, and many more. Typically, a paid internship is 15 hours per week and takes place after school and/or on the weekends.

"The program gives students a great opportunity to gain meaningful work experience while acquiring their high school diploma."
