• Making Data Meaningful

    School Stats

    There are many sources of publicly available data in the education world, and the Center works to make sense of it all. We gather information and add value for all education stakeholders in the form of meaningful analysis, data visualizations, and improved accessibility. Not only do we provide snapshots of the education landscape with comprehensive data on school statistics, student enrollment, demographics, special education, and free and reduced lunch populations, but we also monitor trends over time.
