Enrollment Update from BHUSD
Just a few days before the start of the 2021-22 school year, Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) Superintendent Dr. Michael Bregy provided the Board of Education with an update on enrollment. At the middle and high school level, the district reported an increase in enrollment from last year. At the elementary level, though, enrollment declined from last year. As of Aug. 10, the cumulative enrollment at BHUSD for 2021 was 3,198 — down from last year, which was 3,281.
Bregy underscored that the numbers are changing each day. “Just today alone, four or five new families came in to register,” he said. Last week, 41 new students registered.
District saw its numbers decline during the COVID-19 pandemic, with many of its younger learners moving to private schools resulting from frustration surrounding school closures. “In the next several months, we’ll be able to see this shakeout as far as our enrollment, and then start looking at some of the trends in the entire community,” Bregy added.
For the 2021-2022 school year, enrollment at the high school is up by 10 from last year with 1,245, and up by five at the middle school with 871. At Hawthorne Elementary, enrollment is down from 557 in 2020 to 520 in 2021. Horace Mann Elementary is seeing the biggest drop, with 559 students, compared to last year’s 609.
