Terrace area school numbers holding steady

Numbers are stable at private schools and at French public school

While enrolment in the Coast Mountains School District has dipped this year, at other schools in Terrace the amount of students appears to be holding steady.

At Centennial Christian School, there were 135 students K-12 last year, with 134 students K-12 this year.

Veritas Catholic School had 201 students this year, six more than last year’s 195. Veritas principal Dave Crawley said that while some families who attended the school last year moved away, the school still enrolled 19 new students – including four new students in Grade 8.

This year is the first year the school is offering Grade 8, and the class has 16 students. The school plans on offering Grade 9 next year, and then remaining a K-9 school going into the future.

And at Mountainview Christian Academy there were 51 students last year and 53 enrolled this year.

Spring Creek Adventist Christian K-8 School had 20 students as of Sept. 30, 2013, down from 23 last year.

And at Ecole Jack Cook, which is part of school district 93, Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Colombie-Britanique, there was a drop of five students, with 35 students last year and 30 students this year in the K-7 school.
