School District Student Acceptence Rates For The Three Specialized High Schools.
The tables below are the list of School Districts, the number of students who passed the SHST, and the percentage accepted to the three specialized high schools in NYC. Brooklyn Tech, Bronx High School of Science, and Stuyvesant.

Chalkbeat has a map that also can prove useful, you can see it Here.
If you look at the table only two school districts make up more than 10% of the entering class. They are District 2 in Manhattan and District 20 in Brooklyn. Both areas are upper middle class neighborhoods and have a diverse student population.The worst acceptance rates, less than 1%, occurred in Districts 7, 9, and 12 in the Bronx as well as Districts 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, and 32 in Brooklyn.
In addition, the total Bronx student acceptance rate is only 5.6%, less than the acceptance rate of seven districts. They are Districts 2 and 3 in Manhattan, Districts 15 and 20 in Brooklyn, Districts 24, 25, and 26 in Queens, and District 31 in Staten Island.
Good luck Bill de Blasio trying to desegregate schools and getting the State Legislature to remove the SHST as the basis for being accepted in the three specialized high schools.
