Academic Performance
Students Who Graduate in 4 Years0%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within 4 years.
College Enrollment Rates0%
School Culture
Student Attendance0%
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.
