Where Public School Students Live

Users can now select Comprehensive Plan planning areas or wards (2012 or 2022 boundaries) to view where public school students live. By planning area, the majority of public school students live in the Far Southeast and Southwest area and the Far Northeast and Southeast area, followed next by the Rock Creak East area and the Upper Northeast area. The patterns of residence are similar for elementary, middle, and high school aged students (available on the interactive dashboard). Students attending public alternative schools or adult schools are more likely to live in the Rock Creek East area, the Mid-City area, and the Far Southeast and Southwest area.

Looking at trends over time, public school enrollment (all grades) steadily increased - even during the pandemic - in planning areas like Capitol Hill and Upper Northeast. In the Far Northeast and Southeast planning area, the Far Southeast and Southwest planning area, and the Near Northwest planning area, public school enrollment steadily decreased each year of the pandemic.
