  • District enrollment (2013-14) decreased by 1.2 % from the previous year.
    • Public school enrollment in the APS district as a whole has also decreased and the share of those going to public charter vs. traditional public schools has remained stable at 12.3% in 2012-13 and 12.6% in 2013-14.
  • District enrollment next year is expected to decrease 0.7% (14-15)
  • By 2015-16, District enrollment will continue to decrease by 0.5%; the District is anticipated to continue experiencing flat growth as economic conditions slowly improve in the State of New Mexico.
  • Growth areas (residential) over the next five years are expected to be in the northwest and southwest quadrants.
  • Residential growth is forecasted to remain sluggish until the trend reverts to a more traditional pattern with resurgent new home starts in the NW and SW quadrants, respectively, and resurgent resale of existing homes in the near and east heights of Albuquerque.
  • Western Albuquerque Land Holdings LLC (WAHL, formerly SunCal Corporation) with over 50,000 acres on the West Mesa of Albuquerque will continue to be the biggest player in urban growth over the next decade.
  • Mesa Del Sol planned development in SE Albuquerque (5,000 acres) will also be a major player.
