Simba Information’s PreK-12 Enrollment & Demographics, 2021-2022 annually provides an overview and examines PreK-12 enrollment trends and demographics in the U.S. 

Simba Information presents the most recent information available on how many school districts and how many schools there are in the U.S., including how many public schools are charter schools. There is public and private school enrollment data, broken down by elementary and secondary school. Data on charter school enrollment are broken out, with trends over time shown. Information also is provided on the growing number of students being homeschooled or being educated at virtual and blended schools.

The data and insights in this report is designed to help companies that develop and sell instructional resources, educational technology and school support services to stay abreast of important industry changes. 

A main source of the compiled data is the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, generally thought to be the most authoritative source for data of this type, along with state education departments and local school districts.

This year it was more important than before, because of the time lag before NCES updates data, to include additional information drawn from other respected sources. They include Bellweather Partners, the Cato Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Connected Nation, EducationSuperHighway, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, National Association of Independent Schools, the National Catholic Educational Association, the National Center for Homeless Education, the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University, the National Parents Union, National Public Radio and the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey.
