The Changing Demographics of Arlington’s Schools

At a community chat hosted by the African American Leadership Council of Arlington Wednesday night, Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Pat Murphy was asked about the changing demographics of the school population.

According to Dr. Murphy, school administrators have observed the following trends:

  • An increase in Hispanic students
  • A stablization in the number of black students
  • A decrease in white and Asian students

A relatively low 15 percent of Arlington residents have school-aged children, school officials said. Roughly one quarter of the school-aged population attends private schools.
