West High School ended the 2016-17 school year with about 1,228 stu­dents. En­roll­ment as of July 3 was 1,767. The sub­stan­tial growth is a re­sult of the school adding a se­nior class for the 2017-18 school year. West High School served only grades nine through 11 dur­ing its first year.

Ben­tonville High School ended May with 3,345 stu­dents. Its en­roll­ment as of July 3 was 3,163. The school district’s en­roll­ment as of last week was 16,868, an in­crease of 259 stu­dents since Oc­to­ber. That num­ber is cer­tain to start climb­ing rapidly as the first day of school ap­proaches, said Tanya Sharp, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor of stu­dent ser­vices.
