NOTE: Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, and Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin. Prior to 2011, students in the "two or more races" category were categorized as "unclassified." National public is included for reference only and is not included in sorting the jurisdictions. Score differences are calculated based on differences between unrounded average scale scores.
