At the June 20, 2013 School Committee meeting the non-profit New England School Development Council (NESDEC) presented detailed school enrollment projections which predicted a total enrollment of 3,412 in grades Pre-K-12 for the 2013-14 school year. Later at the October 17 School Committee meeting, Superintendent Dr MacLeod presented the actual school enrollment as of October 1. The actual enrollment for this year is currently 3,459 students, or 47 students more than NESDEC’s projection made just four months ago. This makes 2013-14 the second highest total enrollment year, topped only by the 2009-10 school year which had slightly more at 3,462 total students.  Additional students may enroll during the year as the Legacy Farms development gradually comes online.  The largest two grades this year are grade 5 with 305 students and grade 12 with 300 students.
