Enrollment Numbers Up at Enterprise Schools

One Wiregrass school district is showing a record increase in student enrollment figures for this year.

Enterprise City School Superintendent Dr. Jim Reese told the school board there is slightly more than 6,000 students.

It is the first time that system has exceeded the 6000 mark.

Besides having to rebuild tornado ravaged Enterprise High and Hillcrest Elementary, Dr. Resse says the district will spend $2.5 million dollars adding new classrooms at Harrand Creek and Rucker Boulevard Elementary Schools to keep up with the growth.

"Six-thousand students enrolled; that’s the first time Enterprise has had such a large enrollment number. It is a sign that our city and school system continues to grow. We are ready for those challenges," said Dr. Reese.

Enterprise City Schools have seen its student population swell by a few hundred over last school year.
