Every year, American high school students take SATs, which are standardized tests intended to measure literacy, numeracy, and writing skills. There are three sections - reading, math, and writing, each with a maximum score of 800 points. These tests are extremely important for students and colleges, as they play a pivotal role in the admissions process.

Analyzing the performance of schools is important for a variety of stakeholders, including policy and education professionals, researchers, government, and even parents considering which school their children should attend.

You have been provided with a dataset called `schools.csv`, which is previewed below.

You have been tasked with answering three key questions about New York City (NYC) public school SAT performance.

# Which schools are best for math?

# Calculate total_SAT per school
schools["total_SAT"] = schools["average_math"] + schools["average_reading"] + schools["average_writing"]

# Who are the top 10 performing schools?
top_10_schools = schools.sort_values("total_SAT", ascending=False)[["school_name", "total_SAT"]].head(10)

# Which NYC borough has the highest standard deviation for total_SAT?
boroughs = schools.groupby("borough")["total_SAT"].agg(["count", "mean", "std"]).round(2)

# Filter for max std and make borough a column
largest_std_dev = boroughs[boroughs["std"] == boroughs["std"].max()]

# Rename the columns for clarity
largest_std_dev = largest_std_dev.rename(columns={"count": "num_schools", "mean": "average_SAT", "std": "std_SAT"})

# Optional: Move borough from index to column
largest_std_dev.reset_index(inplace=True)``````
