The following data provides a snapshot of historical enrollment/class sizes and current class sizes.  An average means some individual classes may be smaller or larger, but most are a good indicator of size. The information includes elementary, middle school, and high school sizes and class averages.  In addition, the district’s long-term enrollment trend data is included.  The goal of the district has been to maintain programs, increase student services, and keep class sizes manageable during a time of significant state aid loss due to decreased enrollment.
