    Enrollment Caps

    Alston Ridge Elementary School is a capped school; however, our school continues to register students in most grades to provide families immediate enrollment. School enrollment caps limit the number of students who can attend the school in each grade to ensure that building capacity and class size limits are maintained in high-growth communities. Individual class sizes remain the same or smaller than schools without an enrollment cap. If a student is registered to begin school in a grade that has an enrollment cap, the student may be assigned to attend the overflow school designated by the WCPSS Office of Student Assignment. More information about school capping is available at https://www.wcpss.net/Page/33756 or by calling the school.
