Housing growth swells Elkhorn schools, with more development on the horizon
Work nears completion on Sagewood Elementary School, near 180th and Fort Streets, in the Elkhorn school district. Sagewood is one of two new elementary schools opening this fall in the district, which is preparing for a record kindergarten enrollment of about 600 students. And more growth appears to be on the horizon as some of builders' busiest new developments lie in the district.

Three hundred and sixty seniors graduated last month. More than 600 kindergartners start school in August.
The Elkhorn school district has grown a lot over the past 10 years, and now, with a number of new housing developments in the works, it's poised to accelerate — maybe explode. Among metro-area districts, only Bennington has grown at a faster clip than Elkhorn.
