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.
