Enrollment and Demographics

2022-23 Enrollment

Poudre School District's total student enrollment count for the 2022-23 school year is 30,105 students. This year’s enrollment is an increase of 164 students from PSD’s 2021-22 school year enrollment of 29,941. PSD’s enrollment increase bucks a statewide trend of declining enrollment; 85 of the state’s 185 school districts and boards of cooperative educational services reported growth in enrollment this year, while 94 reported drops in student numbers. PSD remains the eighth largest school district in Colorado.

More information about Colorado school districts' enrollment is available on the Colorado Department of Education website.

The student count is captured each year in October as part of a point-in-time metric set by Colorado to measure public school enrollment. PSD’s total figure includes all K-12 students and student enrollment in PSD-authorized charter schools, early childhood education and other district programs.
