Your parents were probably not even in this country 30 years ago. When I went to school, the neighborhood was predominantly black not Asian!
I lived in bayside all of the 80s....there was a small pocket of blacks residing there around Oceania St by northern blvd back then. Never has there been a large black population in bayside....not even close to 10%. The vast majority of blacks that went to district 26 are bus in from other parts of queens like Jamaica, hollis, etc.

Its pretty the most silly thing I've read this year to claim blacks build the bayside school system. I've met a few nice & smart black kids back then but they were an extreme minority.

Those schools may not be the top schools, but they are still very good schools. Look at their graduation rates and their state test scores compared to the city averages.... They come in above the city average.

Elmhurst shares a school district with Corona, Middle Village, Maspeth, Glendale, Ridgewood, and parts of Woodside, Sunnyside and LIC. It is probably the most overcrowded school district in NYC. Nobody knows what the real population in this area is, but it is obvious that the city does not recognize (or just fails to recognize) how many people live in this area.

I think you can generalize that Asians tend to be strong in math. I've sat for actuarial exams, and there is a disproportionately higher amount of Asians sitting for these exams compared to their portion of the overall city population.

I don't know about schools in Elmhurst. But, PS130 and PS184 in Chinatown area are in top 5% among NYC public schools. Both have overwhelming amount of Asians. They are not G&T schools that can filter and hand pick the best and brightest kids from all NYC. Most of their students are from the nearby neighborhoods.

X2, HB is a majority Catholic area so parents there tend to send their kids to parochial schools. Not far away, I heard the Public School in Belle Harbor is decent. That's the western part of the Rockaways. Bayside grade schools are good but not sold on Bayside High.

On School digger go to: New York Middle School Rankings, 6th, 7th, 8th Grades Combined
NY State Assessments English Language Arts & NY State Assessments Math
2011-2012.

PS184 Chinatown is ranked 8th in NY STATE. Majority asian, and has high amount of low income students.

My conclusion - your anecdotal nonsense about your brother's cousin's pet dog's teacher is
