Students Who Graduate in 4 Years98%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within 4 years.
College Enrollment Rates84%
School Culture
Student Attendance98%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
AttendanceExemplary attendance & punctuality (no more than 5 absences; no more than 5 instances of lateness) on most recent final report card
BehaviorNo negative disciplinary reports on most recent final report card
