More Neighborhood Families Choosing Skinner

SkinnerJuniorHighSchool3What happens when you have a school with great leadership, great teachers, strong academic offerings, a wide range of extracurricular activities, and a community that stands behind its neighborhood school? You have the ingredients for success.  This past week DPS communications had this to say about trends in Skinner’s enrollment.

“Skinner Middle School is experiencing dramatic increases in both overall enrollment and in the number of neighborhood families choosing the school. Skinner’s total enrollment for 2014 is projected at 500 students, which represents a 34% increase since its 2012 enrollment of 372 students. Of these 500 students, 185 will be sixth-graders, which represents an increase of 52% since the 2011-12 school year. In addition, the school system’s official enrollment count, which is conducted in October of each year, reflects a 94% increase in the number of neighborhood residents enrolling in Skinner (136 students in 2013 compared with 70 students in 2012).”
