Local School Information

There are significant differences between the opportunities afforded to students in individual schools and school districts. Schools in low-income neighborhoods are typically more racially isolated for minority students, offer students far fewer gifted programs and advanced placement classes and have lower graduation rates than schools in more affluent neighborhoods.

To learn more about how the combination of economic and racial differences affect the opportunities available to students in your neighborhood compared to students in any other school or district, visit the U.S. Department of Education's database.

Once there, click on any of the tables with categories that interest you and then use the search bar to enter the name of the school or district you are interested in or click on the folder for your state. Inside the folder, you can select any folders for districts or individual schools you'd like to compare. Then you choose the things you'd like to see and you'll get a custom made table of your information.
