The Anglophone South School District continues to see huge growth in enrolment numbers.

Unofficial numbers from the district show there are 24,149 students this year.

That is an increase of nearly 500 compared to September of last year.

It marks the third straight year of increases and the highest number of students the district has seen in more than a decade.

Figures provided by the district show there were 26,342 students enrolled in 2006. That dropped to 23,604 by 2012 and continued to drop to 22,969 in 2016.

Enrolment was up and down in the following four school years, reaching a multi-year low of 22,519 in 2020, before rebounding to 22,998 in 2021 and 23,699 in 2022.

District spokesperson Jessica Hanlon said official numbers will not be confirmed by the province until the end of September.
