Class sizes at, or below provincial averages across the board in School District 58.
The average class size at the primary level is 19, from grades 4 to 7 it's 24, and at the high school level it sits at 17.
Speaking to the numbers, Superintendent Stephen McNiven says the district has placed an emphasis on keeping class sizes manageable for many years.
"There has been a good history of supporting class sizes by our board for a number of years. It's looked this way from probably the year 2000 and beyond at least."
Overall, McNiven says 2,077 students are enrolled in the district this year.
That number is 43 higher than originally projected.
