NEW YORK CITY — Every single elementary school district saw improvement on the elementary school state exams this year, but how did your child’s school do?
DNAinfo New York mapped out the test results below, coloring each school based on the percent of students in third through eighth grade that passed the English Language Arts (ELA) or math exam.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña touted big gains in English Language Arts and math test scores for third through eighth graders when the results were released last month. Citywide, the number of students who scored at a proficient level reached 38 percent on the ELA exam and 36.4 percent on the math exam.
Citywide, Manhattan District 2 and Queens District 26 performed the highest on the tests. The best performing school was the Baccalaureate School for Global Education in Astoria, which saw more than 96 percent of its students pass both exams and ranked first in the city in math and second in English Language Arts.
