"How Is Your School Doing" is an online database with 77,322 data points across nearly 3,000 schools, broken down by gender, race and economic status, as well as other factors. Entering a student's basic demographic information to find how well their group scores compared to other students in the same school, how well their school scores within the district and which other local districts perform better.
