McMinnville School District, Oregon -- Population -- Statistics, School enrollment -- Oregon -- McMinnville -- Forecasting, Demographic surveys -- Oregon -- McMinnville


The McMinnville School District (MSD) has experienced nearly uninterrupted enrollment growth for more than 20 years due to a growing economy and rapid housing and population growth within its boundaries. By Fall 2007, total K-12 enrollment reached 6,327 students. The Fall 2007 enrollment was an increase of 97 students over Fall 2006, and amounted to 735 more K-12 students than five years earlier, in 2002-03. During the five year period, elementary schools added 371 students (14 percent), middle schools added 171 students (13 percent), and high schools added 193 students (11 percent). This report presents the results of a study conducted by the Portland State University Population Research Center (PRC) concluding that the District should expect enrollment growth to continue over the next five years at all school levels. The forecast of 647 additional students (10 percent) between 2007-08 and 2012-13 is only slightly less growth than the previous five year period.
