"We're over projection," she said. "We're just bustin' at the seams."

With 921 kids, Davidson is the district's second-largest middle school, surpassed by Ruckel's 988 students.

Because student enrollments continue to fluctuate as students transfer to other schools or move away, an official population count is unavailable until October.

Most Crestview schools saw population increases, though Riverside and Walker elementary schools and Shoal River Middle School saw slight decreases.

Northwood Elementary School principal Dr. Donna Goode attributed an increase in 65 Cougars to the school's designation as an arts and sciences institute.

"We've been publicizing that we offer drama and we offer dance and music. We're going to have productions," she said.

"We're getting ready to do a whole lot of fun and exciting things as well as the Common Core (State Standards Initiative), and that has attracted parents and kids who are excited about the new program."
