APS Enrollment Data 1994-2016

The visual below shows enrollment trends at APS for the past 23 years. Each data point is from the GADOE October FTE count. Use the filters on the right to select a school or grade, or the tabs at the top to pick a different view.

Mouse-over the visual to get exact numbers. The graph shows that the number of total students in APS has decreased from 59,560 to 51,927 students from 1994 to 2016. But there has been some increase since the 2009 low of 48,909. Demographics have also shifted: from 91% black in 1994, to 75% black in 2016.

The graph has several interactive features: choose a specific school or grade using the filters on the right, or use the tabs at the top to change visuals. The images below show a few different views that can be made using this visual.

The top graph was made by filtering to Lin Elementary School. The next graph was made by selecting the “Over-Time Multi-Select” and selecting all KIPP schools. To make the final graph, select the “Enrollment by Grade” tab.

Some schools in the state data file that were closed at least ten years ago do not have school names. The data for these schools appear if school name “Null” is selected.
