Lynn Sees Increasing Enrollments at Lower Grade Levels

The latest Lynn Public School enrollment figures indicate increasing student populations at the lower grade levels.

First grade enrollment within LPS has grown nearly 5% from the last school year (2012-13) to the current one.

The number of kindergarten students within LPS has grown over the past 5 schools from an enrollment of 1,120 students in 2009-10 to 1,313 students in 2013-14.

Kindergarten enrollment at the individual school level varies with the Early Childhood Center enrolling the most students at this grade level at 250 (not included below).

Ingalls reported a substantial increase in kindergarten students over the last two school years (43.8%) while other schools such as Harrington and Lynn Woods saw slight decreases.

Other urban/Gateway City school districts are also seeing increases in their student population, particularly in the lower grades. Chelsea saw a 13% increase in kindergarten students from 2012-13 to 2013-14 while Holyoke reported a 6.4% increase at this grade level.
