St. Louis Needs Assessment
Data mapped by PolicyMap, an online GIS mapping tool.


You can explore our interactive maps by:

  • Clicking on individual schools to learn about their location, enrollment, type and academic performance.
  • Clicking on individual zip codes for the percentage of K-12 students residing there who are able to attend a quality school (service level), the number of K-12 students residing there who are not able to attend a quality school (service gap) and to compare results for the different zip codes across the city.
  • Filtering the above information by school type (district neighborhood, district selective, district magnet, charter or private), grade division (K-5, 6-8, 9-12) and accountability rating (accredited with distinction thru unaccredited).
  • Layering other relevant information, such as the percentage of students who qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program, the percentage of students living below the federal poverty line, educational attainment, and others.
