BROOKLYN — While the majority of schools in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick had state test scores that lagged behind the citywide average, several North Brooklyn schools saw more than half of their students pass the math and English exams.

On the citywide level, 35 percent of third- through eighth-graders passed proficiency standards on the state's math test, up from 34 percent the year before.

In the state's English Language Arts (ELA) test, 30 percent of city third- through eighth-graders met proficiency standards, up from 28 percent last year.

Most North Brooklyn schools saw between 0 and 25 percent of their students pass proficiency standards, but a handful scored high marks on the tests, which are aligned with Common Core standards.

For example, P.S. 34 in Greenpoint, a neighborhood pre-K through fifth grade school, had 67 percent of its students pass the math exam and 54 percent of its students pass the English test.

Additionally, the All City Leadership School in Bushwick, where students are trained as cadets, had nearly 82 percent of its students pass the math exam, while 68 percent passed the English exam.
