Our graduation rate is up for the sixth year in a row! The class of 2019 graduated at 83.3%, an increase of more than two points over last year and 20 points since 2013.
The steady gains come as graduation requirements are increasing and more students are taking advanced high school coursework, like Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, College in the High School and computer science.
“Our belief in our students and your dedication to our bold goals is paying off. We are showing the world what our students are capable of when we hold them to high expectations. I could not be prouder!” said Superintendent Susan Enfield.
Dr. Enfield announced the graduate rate increase at her annual State of Our Schools address on Tuesday, October 29.
Graduation rates continue to rise for all student groups, with students of color seeing the greatest gains.
