TOP 5: Most crowded Abbotsford schools

22 of 46 public schools running over capacity, but only five over 50%

Ever wonder which Abbotsford schools squeeze in the most students? Turns out, the district’s elementary school buildings are lacking the most space.

Twenty two of 46 Abbotsford schools are running over their operating capacity, but only five of those are over 50 per cent.

Below is a list of the top five most crowded schools in the district for the 2019-2020 school year:

5) Auguston Traditional Elementary is running at 152 per cent of its official operating capacity of 241 students, with enrolment at 366 students.

4) Dormick Park Elementary is running at 154 per cent of its capacity of 196 students, with enrolment at 302 students.

3) Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts (North Poplar Elementary) is running at 172 per cent of its capacity of 241 students, with enrolment at 414 students.

2) King Traditional Elementary is running at 175 per cent of its capacity of 219 students, with enrolment at 384 students.

1) South Poplar Elementary is running at 217 per cent of its capacity of 128 students, with enrolment at 278.

*Important note: The official operating capacity does not include portable classrooms, and running a school over that capacity does not directly translate into overcrowded classrooms. The average student-to-teacher ratio is 17.08 for elementary schools, 18.86 for middle schools and 18.87 for high schools.
