CARROLL GARDENS — Some schools in Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens recorded significant gains in state test scores for math and English Language Arts, mirroring citywide improvements in all districts this year, statistics show.
P.S. 58, one of the neighborhood's most popular schools and home to a well-known French dual language program, continued to increase its scores this year, with around 78 percent of students passing ELA and math.
That's up from 69 percent for ELA and around 76 percent for math a year ago. The school currently ranks seventh and sixth for ELA and math respectively out of 36 schools in the district.
Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens are part of District 15, which also includes Red Hook, Park Slope, Sunset Park and Gowanus.

Other local schools that saw improvements in at least one subject include the Brooklyn Secondary School for Collaborative Studies, the School for International Studies as well as M.S. 442 and P.S. 32 on the Gowanus-Carroll Gardens border.
At P.S. 29, another well-known school where parents recently urged the Department of Education to create more pre-K seats to combat overcrowding, pass rates in both subjects dropped slightly.
