Over the next ten years, we’re projected to welcome approximately 700 more students. By 2026, our enrollment will reach more than 5,000 students, representing more than 30% growth since 2008.

Hawthorn 73’s current growth trend started in 1998, when enrollment was approximately 3,191 students. This trend was the driving force behind the 2004 bond referendum that helped build Townline Elementary. The district’s work over the last 20 years, and our work going forward with the recent Educational Facilities Master Plan (EFMP) reflect current and projected enrollment growth.

Families move to Hawthorn 73 for educational excellence. Our growth reflects the high-quality education we provide our students and the high standards and pride our community has for our schools. Our community-driven EFMP provides the vision for how we will adapt our facilities to meet our growth needs and provide the innovative, technology-driven education our students need to thrive in the 21st century.
