About 37 percent of the region's students met or exceeded math standards on the state's new Common Core-based standardized tests, but test results often varied tremendously by school.
Some schools saw just 2 percent of tested students meet math standards. Other saw more than 75 percent hit the mark.
A clear trend emerges: Students living in wealthier areas tended to do better than students living in areas with much poverty.
This map shows, in green, the 50 local schools with the highest percentage of students meeting math standards. It also shows, in red, the 50 schools with the lowest percentage of students meeting math standards.
