Enrollment is up at LPHS

Posted by wlpo on August 23, 2012

If you attended LP High School during the 60’s and 70’s having more than 300 students in your graduating class was typical.  That wasn’t the case for your children.

The high school began the new school year with 1,305 students, about 25 students more than last year.  Principal Deb Nelson says it’s been awhile since enrollment has been more than 1,300.  She says an increasing student enrollment has been a trend for the last four or five years and she attributes it to families that moved into the area.

This year the freshman class is the largest on campus with more than 350 students.  The sophomores are second largest class.  The senior class is the smallest with less than 300 students.

Though it’s early in the year, Nelson doesn’t expect enrollment to decline by much though she says the mobility rate is high.
