Student Growth at Edina Schools

Enrollment numbers at Edina Public Schools expected to increase.

Edina Public Schools expect a modest enrollment increase of about 200 students over the next five years. The high school and Countryside and Highlands elementary schools are projected to see the largest spikes. The average class size at the high school is currently 28 students, with average size of 25 at the district’s elementary and middle schools. That is nearing, but still below, functional capacity, says director of business services Margo Bauck. A new demographic study will be completed next January/February that examines how Edina’s redevelopment and projected growth will affect future enrollment numbers.
