Success Academy charter students are the best in New York state in math, third best in English Language Arts (ELA) among schools with 95+ percent participation rates in testing, the New York City-based network reported today.

"The majority of the network’s 20,000 students are children of color from low-income households," yet they outperformed students from affluent suburban districts. In every subgroup, Success students succeeded compared to similar students in the city and state.

Forty-nine percent of black students and 55 percent of Hispanic students earned the top score in math; 32 percent of black and Hispanic students earned the top score in ELA.

For special-needs students, 79 percent passed the math test and 56 percent passed the ELA test, triple the rate of similar students statewide.

Students in grades 3 through 8 took the tests in June, but the state delayed releasing the scores.
