Manuel Marrero, right, a Rogers High School student, listens during a math lesson Tuesday. At left is student Whitney Hendrix. The high school added more math and science classes because of an enrollment increase.

Enrollment for Rogers schools grew by the second-smallest amount in the past decade, but administrators said the additional students still required class sections and additional bus routes.

Springdale: 19,375

Rogers: 14,148

Bentonville: 14,108
