Public School Enrollment by Race and Ethnicity

The majority of the PK3-12 grade student population is African American. However, the number of African American students began leveling off and even slightly decreasing after SY2016-17. Black PK3-12 enrollment increased in SY2022-23 compared to the previous year but has not reached pre-pandemic levels. The number of Hispanic and white public school students has been growing since 2013, decreasing only in SY2020-21 (the first year of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic). See the interactive dashboard for information about specific grade levels and the DME's Edsight on enrollment trends by race/ethnicity.

The racial/ethnic makeup of the PK3-12th grade student population is becoming more diverse as the share of Hispanic and white students increase. Early childhood and elementary grades are slightly more diverse than middle school and high school grades.
