Mandan and Shiloh Christian Start School

Posted:

Today is the first day of school for Mandan students.

As of today Mandan Public schools has 3451 students enrolled, up 141 from last school year.

The biggest increase is at the elementary level with 113 more students than last year.

Even with the additional students in the schools superintendent Mike Bitz says the first day of school went well.

"We're a year away from opening up Red Trail elementary school so our elementary class sizes are a little larger than we'd like them to be, we're trying to support our teachers as best we can to make it a nice learning environment for our students," Superintendent Mike Bitz said.

Today was also the first day of school for Shiloh Christian students.

Like many other schools in the state they've also seen an increase in enrollment.

This school year they've added 40 more students to their family.

Superintendent Morgan Forness says it's exciting to add more kids to the school but it does come with some challenges.

"Probably one of the biggest challenges we've had is the fact that over the last four years we've had double digit growth each and every year and we've had to make some facility adjustments and this year was no exception, we had to move the fourth grade over to the middle school/high school building, we pretty much utilized every available space on campus," Superintendent Morgan Forness said.

Shiloh has 423 students in grades K-12.
