I mean, I spent a whole lot of time researching this before I became a parent, and there's basically no evidence to suggest that outcomes for middle-class white kid are different in any way whether they go to a racially diverse city school or a top-notch suburban school. Basically the entirety of educational performance can be chalked up to socio-economic status.

And indeed, our daughter - who goes to a majority-black school - has been doing great and is a straight-A student. I'm a little let down she wasn't quite smart enough to qualify for gifted (she tested at 119, which is under the threshold the district sets for white students) but that's probably more attributable to the typical reversion to the mean when you have children than anything.
