2022-2023 Data Snapshot

Fine arts courses, teachers, and other access measures collected from HISD and from the artlook® 22-23 survey.

Student-Fine Arts Teacher Ratio

This demonstrates the ratio of total student enrollment to the number of FA teachers on a campus. This is similar to a student to teacher ratio per classroom. A lower ratio is better, as that shows there are more FA teachers per number of students. Overall, 98 of 247 (39.7%) HISD campuses with fine arts teachers reported that they had more than 200 students per fine arts teacher.
