CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-  Fifth day enrollment figures show Hamilton County schools are up almost 500 students from this date last year.

The new East Ridge Elementary has played a big part, with a huge increase from last year (from 285 to 849).

The school's population is a combination of the old East ridge Elementary and McBrien. Due to a higher than expected increase in students, the county has given the school one more assistant principal.   New students are reportedly registering at the school each day.

Ooltewah Elementary is up 55, from 378 to 433. The two elementary schools with the biggest decrease from last year are Barger Academy (474 to 426) and Hardy Elementary (504 to 458).

Among middle schools, Normal Park (177 to 228) and Hixson (505 to 554) have the biggest increases, while Orchard Knob (461 to 327) and Dalewood (366 to 282) are way down, with many students reportedly opting to attend higher performing schools.

East Hamilton High, in its second year, is up 281 (from 771 to 1052), with its first senior class. Signal Mountain High is also up, with 163 new students.  Ooltewah High (1473 to 1260) and Brainerd High (764 to 679) have the biggest enrollment losses.
