Boro schools perform well on math tests

Several Queens schools were among those with the best performance on fourth- and eighth-grade state math exams, the city Education Department said last week.

One school, PS 122 in Astoria, had 100 percent of its eighth-graders pass the exams and was one of only three schools to have a perfect passing rate.

Two School District 26 schools, PS 205 in Bayside and PS 98 in Douglaston, were also among the top three in the city for best performance on the state exam among fourth-graders.

PS 205 had 97.7 percent of its fourth-graders pass, while PS 98 was close behind with a 97.6 percent passing rate.

One Queens school made the dishonor roll when it came to the state math test: the Clarence Witherspoon School in School District 27 had 14.7 percent of its students pass the exam.
