Grade and Ward Enrollment Trends

Enrollment in Ward 5 public schools has increased every year since SY13-14, driven mostly by increases in enrollment in public charter schools. Enrollment in Ward 4 schools has been steadily increasing over multiple years as well. Enrollment in Ward 8 public schools increased in SY22-23 after seeing significant declines starting in SY18-19. Trends for individual grades (or a selection of grades) by ward can also be viewed. After experiencing declines in PK3 enrollment, beginning before the COVID-19 pandemic, Wards 6, 7, and 8 have had two consecutive years of increases. PK4 enrollment has been declining in Ward 8 since SY18-19. 

Enrollment Trends by Ward, SY13-14 to SY22-23



By grade band, enrollment in Kindergarten through 5th grade increased between SY13-14 and SY19-20, but at a declining rate. Enrollment in this grade band decreased for the first time in SY20-21, the first full school year during the COVID-19 pandemic, and then again in SY21-22 before increasing in SY22-23. Enrollment in middle school grades (6th-8th grade) saw consistent increases in enrollment during those same years, only decreasing for the first time in SY21-22. High school grades (9th-12th grade plus alternative schools) have increased for the last three school years. PK3 and PK4 were relatively constant between SY13-14 amd SY19-20, with some small fluctuations year over year. Enrollment declined in SY20-21 and SY21-22 during the COVID-19 pandemic, with some modest bounceback in SY22-23. Users can also view the dashboard by individual grade.
