How many elementary schools feed into a secondary system?

Posted by West Fargo Public Schools on 8/28/2018 10:40:00 AM

With our current configuration of buildings and boundaries, we have six elementary schools feeding into Cheney Middle School and West Fargo High School and seven elementary schools feeding into Liberty Middle School and Sheyenne High School.

However, the system is not dictated by the number of individual elementary schools, but by the number of sections per grade level. At the middle school, each building receives 19 sections for three grades. At the high school, each building receives 19 sections for four grades. The number of sections going into a building is dependent on the building’s capacity and our preferred class size. Our high schools can accommodate 1,550 students each and our middle schools can accommodate 1,200 each.

The addition of a third feeder-system will allow for six elementary schools to feed into the north side system, five to feed into our central system, and up to five to feed into the newly-created south side system.

Below is the feeder-system breakdown for the three systems with our current elementary schools.
