See how your school’s test scores compare (interactive map)

Test scores up

This year’s high school seniors posted modest gains statewide on the SAT tests given last spring, in results released last week. You can use this map to see how a school did compared to nearby schools, its home county and the state as a whole. For counties with 10 or more high schools, the map highlights the top 5 schools. It also highlights the top 10 in the state.

Many of the highest performing schools are in the wealthier parts of the state or are magnet schools in their communities. Schools with low scores are often those with the poorest children; research has shown poverty can be an unfortunate predictor of academic success and the percentage of poor students are included in the results. Zoom in to see individual schools and click on them to get more information. You can use the ‘search’ box in the upper right to focus on a particular community but be sure to include the city and state in the search. The larger, green markers indicate highly ranked schools.

Is there a web site that summarizes scores for all students in a specific grade for all schools in a district? Is it possible to compare the scores of different districts?
Thank you.
