Demographic shifts have left a large percentage of center-city schools underenrolled, while schools on the edge of town overflow with students.

AISD considers a school to be underenrolled when enrollment falls below 70% of its permanent capacity. As of Sept. 23, a dozen schools fit that definition.

Meanwhile, two dozen schools are over capacity; 13 of them are over 120% full.
