"There's always an overall picture that goes into a graduation rate on how did we get to that number", he said.
"Our schools are committed to the academic success of our students", said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Of the 68 schools recognized, three schools achieved a graduation rate of 100 percent.
Fort Wayne Community Schools posted a graduation rate of 88.95 in 2017. 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. "Eight schools graduated more than 90% of their students". That's a 6-point increase from 2016, and a 35-point increase over the past 10 years. The improvement significantly narrowed the gap between the district and the state average.
Only standard diplomas are counted as graduates. The overall graduation rate for all West Virginia high schools was 89.40 percent.
In IPS, most of the gains were at schools slated to close at the end of this year. Matt Jones, principal, said each year the school strives for at least a 90 percent rate.
The Indiana Department of Education on Friday released the 2017 state graduation rate.
The School District of Lee County's graduation rate increased to 78.7 percent for the 2017 graduation class, the highest level attained by the district since 2010-11 when the Federal Rate calculation was implemented, according to a release issued by the district Friday.
