Phoenix Union’s enrollment has increased by 337 students over last year, and the 27,766 students are the most in 39 years. The year-over-year figures are taken after the 20th day of the school year, called “High Point” by the District. Traditionally, enrollment continues to grow in the first four weeks of the school year. PUHSD administrators had projected a gain of 109 students from 2015-16. North High School had the largest increase of 236 students and South Mountain increased 140 students. North had 105 more freshmen and South had 99 more freshmen. Ten schools experienced gains, while six schools decreased their student population. Small school Linda Abril Educational Academy added 76 more students to its new campus, and the addition of the new Phoenix Coding Academy contributed to the growth.
Trevor Browne and Maryvale continue to be the largest schools. Browne has 3,154 students, and Maryvale has 3,021.
