There are no comprehensive statistics on student enrollment by academic subject, aside from EMR’s estimates which follow.
grades K-5 it is reasonable to assume that all students receive
instruction in the major subjects, including Reading, Language Arts,
Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, so there is no need to
estimate enrollments by those subjects in the elementary grades. In the
major subjects (which break down into courses within subjects) at the
middle/junior high and senior high levels, and in the minor courses at
all levels, there is a need for such estimates. Product developers and
marketers need to know the size of each niche (an intersection of
subject and grade) within the array of K-12 subjects in order to plan
and budget their efforts profitably. This report provides such student
enrollment estimates by course within subject and by grade.
the middle/junior high and senior high levels, some courses are as big
or bigger than elementary Reading and Math. Examples of these high
enrollment courses include high school
3.7 million students), Algebra (approximately 4.4 million students),
and Biology (approximately 3.5 million students). On the other hand,
some secondary courses are far smaller. While high school Spanish is at
3.7 million students, Latin enrolls only around 248,000 students. The
body of this report provides the specifics on estimated course
enrollments in Art, English/Language Arts, Foreign Language,
Mathematics, Music, Science, Social Studies, and Career & Technical
It should be noted that the
teacher numbers used here are intended to represent the public
elementary, middle junior/high, and senior high schools, and that
combined K-12, adult education, special education, and career and
technical education schools were not included. Thus the approximate
numbers of teachers by subject and grade are on the conservative side,
which also makes the estimated student enrollment ranges conservative.
