DPS Student Body Is Growing, But Still Smallest In Saline Co.

The student population at Dorchester Public School appears to be on the rebound.  

And in a big way.

According to information obtained by the Times, the K-12 student body at Dorchester has grown by more than 10 percent in one year, thanks to big gains in enrollment of elementary students.

This year, there are nearly 190 students in K-12, compared to fewer than 170 last school year. 

More than a hundred Longhorns are in Kindergarten through sixth grade this school year.

So how does Dorchester stack up, population-wise, compared to other school districts in Saline County? Dorchester is certainly the smallest.

Friend Public School has 277 students, while Wilber-Clatonia claims 580, and Crete has 1,852.

  1. But look at Crete and Wilber. More than half of the school, is Hispanic.
