Bozeman Schools Gain 1,000 Students Over 6 Years

If anyone needed additional proof of Bozeman’s growth and the growth of its schools, October’s official enrollment count from the Bozeman School District showcased that growth in the last few years.

Since 2009, Bozeman schools have risen from an enrollment of 5,481 students to 6,505 students today—representing more than 1,000 additional students.

Year over year, 211 more students are enrolled in Bozeman schools than in 2014.

The headcounts set records in eight elementary schools and both middle schools. Bozeman middle schools gained 97 students, up 7% from last year, while Bozeman elementary schools have gained 91 students, up 3% from last year.

Luckily, Bozeman voters approved two bonds in the November 2015 elections to expand Hawthorne Elementary School and Sacajawea Middle School.

Bozeman High School, currently the best ranked high school in Montana, added 13 students. Next year Bozeman will have its largest freshman class yet at 626 students. The district has already formed an advisory group and will work to find the consultants and architects necessary to begin building a second high school.
