Where Public School Students Live

The majority of public school students (all grade levels) live in Wards 8, 7, and 4. 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 public adult schools are more likely to live in Wards 4, 1, and 8.
