2016 Graduation Results

Graduation rates for cohort 2016 were released today (11/1). The view below shows the percentage of four-year graduates by school and district (orange).

Overall, the district graduated 71.1 percent of its students in four years, similar to last year’s rate of 71.5 percent in 2015. State-wide, the graduation rate is 79.2 percent.

Use the “Select Cohort” filter in the upper left-hand corner to see graduation rates from previous school years. To see one school’s rates for the past six years, click on the “School Trends” tab then use the “Select a School” filter.
Graduation rates for small APS schools that are now operating as one large school (Ex: Therrell Health, Law, and STEM) have been consolidated to more easily identify trends.

Cohorts are based on the year students first enter ninth grade. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduate within four years, adjusting for transfers.
