Fairfax County Public Schools
Hispanic enrollment in the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) system has increased from 26,761 in 2001 to 51, 060 in 2020. Hispanics now make up 29 percent of the student body -- almost one in three students is Hispanic.
Since 2001, white enrollment has decreased from 89,530 to 69,336 in 2020 -- going down from 56 percent of students to 39 percent.
According to the Pew Hispanic Center: "Hispanics are the youngest major racial or ethnic group in the United States. About one-third, or 17.9 million, of the nation’s Hispanic population is younger than 18, and about a quarter, or 14.6 million, of all Hispanics are Millennials (ages 18 to 33 in 2014), "
Department of Education data shows that only 82 percent of Hispanic youth are likely to graduate high school. The future of Fairfax County and of our country depends on improving education outcomes for these young people. Please join us in helping Hispanic youth move forward to a better future.
