“There is plenty of space at North for North and West Denver Prep to share the building,” Boasberg told those attending a community meeting Wednesday evening. “Should North High School thrive and continue to grow – and I think it will – there will still be hundreds of additional seats available for kids who would like to ‘choice in’ to North. Clearly we would welcome that.”
But some in the community reiterated their opposition. They expressed concern that the district may be underestimating North’s growth potential, and said that adding another high school that is projected to eventually have 500 students will eat up space North may need. North is projected to start the school year with 940 students, and has room for more than 2,000.
