Four local high schools achieve 90 percent or higher graduation rates

West Virginia's 'exemplary' high school graduation rate recognized

Last year, 87.2 percent of students in the state's 2016-2017 cohort graduated from high school in four years, down about two percentage points from 2016.

Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick says "our schools are committed to the academic success of our students".

PikeView, Montcalm, James Monroe and River View high schools are among the schools with a graduation rate of 90 percent or more.

The NACS district's success a year ago at Carroll High School included a graduation rate of 98.8 percent and non-waiver graduation rate of 97 percent, up from 96.7 percent and 95.7 percent, respectively, in 2016. Beech Grove Schools, which enrolls just over 3,000 students, made the biggest jump of any district in the county, increasing 8 percentage points to 95 percent.

EACS was down similarly in 2017, with a graduation rate of 91.36 percent at its high schools and non-waiver rate of 81.11 percent. That's a 6-point increase from 2016, and a 35-point increase over the past 10 years. "Eight schools graduated more than 90% of their students". The improvement significantly narrowed the gap between the district and the state average.

Almost seventy West Virginia high schools were recognized for achieving graduation rates of 90 percent or greater during the 2016-2017 school year.

"We are proud of Homestead High School's graduation rates", said Homestead principal Park Ginder.

The district's non-waiver graduation rate (students who receive their diplomas without a special waiver allowing them to fail required tests) also increased to 70.3 percent past year - up from 64 percent in 2016. Black students and kids with special needs had graduation rates below 80 percent.

The 2017 graduation rate rose slightly for the Northwest Allen County Schools district and dropped a notch at Fort Wayne Community Schools, East Allen County Schools and Southwest Allen County Schools, the Indiana Department of Education reported in data released Friday.

The biggest change was among students who are learning English as a new language.
