Graduation rates are calculated by tracking the students who entered 9th grade for the first time and graduated within four years. And as part of its oversight, we verify that 9th-grade students are on track to graduate in four years and that 12th-grade students have met the school’s graduation requirements.

We also evaluate a school’s performance on multiple measures, including 4- and 5- year graduation rates, which are both indicators of whether or not a student is ready for college or the workforce on its School Quality Report. Which can be found on the school's individual profile pages.
