It should be perhaps no surprise that students in rich school districts perform well. But a new study shows Lexington students are head-and-shoulders above the rest of the United States.
According to a study published by Stanford University last week and picked up in the New York Times blog The Upshot, Lexington sixth graders achieved at a level 3.8 grades ahead of the national average.
As illustrated in The Upshot’s interactive, that attainment level puts the Lexington 0.3 grades levels above any other district.
