See how black students are performing in your school

California’s African-American students are struggling with standardized tests. Statewide, only one in three black public school students passed the English portion of this year’s exam, while only one in five black students passed the math section. By comparison, a majority of white and Asian-American students met state standards in both subjects.

African-American students are disproportionately more likely to be low-income than many other ethnic groups, and low-income students are disproportionately more likely to perform poorly on standardized tests. But the issue is not simply economic. Less than 50 percent of higher-income black students failed to meet reading and math standards, trailing their Latino, white, and Asian-American classmates by significant margins.

The searchable database below allows you to explore how African-American students in your school district and school are performing on standardized tests, and how the achievement gap has expanded or narrowed in your school over time. Simply search the name of your district or school to find results.
