Enrolling Students from Across the World
The newcomer population continues to grow rapidly in OUSD, and has more than doubled in the last five years. If current trends continue, we may end the 2020-21 school year with 1 in 5 high school students being newcomers. In August 2019, more than twice the average number of new newcomers entered OUSD for the first time. Many of our schools have enrollment that is more than 20% newcomer, in some cases as many as 1 in 3 students at a school came to the US in the last three years.
