I just attended a founder's Day" event at my high school - which has always specialized in STEM (Brooklyn Technical High School). Currently the demographics of its 6,000 person student body (admitted by competitive entrance exam) are 17% Black/Latino, 20% Caucasian, 63% Asian. They are proud to have beaten their arch-rivals at Stuyvesant High School (which has a higher proportion of Asians, but a much smaller student population) in the city ping pong championship. Both schools rank among the best in the nation, more than 40% of both school's populations live below the poverty line and over 99% of both school's graduates go on to a four year college (the majority to Ivy League schools with full scholarships).

(I guess our Chinese are as good as those on the other side of the pond:-)
