WSD Kicks Off 2022-2023 School Year With Largest Enrollment in History
This week, the Wentzville School District started the 2022-2023 school year with 17,640 students — the highest enrollment in District history. Enrollment is up from 17,378 students on the first week of school for the 2021-2022 school year.
With an average growth of 500 students per year for the past twenty years, the WSD was the fastest-growing school district in the state for about two decades. Increases in enrollment slowed during the COVID pandemic but have since regained some momentum.
Dr. Danielle Tormala, superintendent of schools, was among the new staff and students to join the District this year. She hit the ground running and visited every WSD school this week.
Also exciting this year for WSD families, the District opened its fourth middle school — North Point Middle School. Having an additional middle school allowed the District to welcome sixth-grade students back into the traditional middle school setting. They have been attending WSD elementary schools due to space restrictions at the middle school level.
The WSD is home to one early childhood center, 13 elementary schools, four middle schools, and four high schools. We also have adaptive and alternative learning centers.
