High School Graduation Rate Continues to Rise
Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s five-year high school graduation rate rose to 82 per cent for students who stay at HWDSB, new Ministry of Education data shows.
For the students who started in 2012-13 and stayed in HWDSB, the rate after five years was 82 per cent, up from 81 per cent for the 2011-12 cohort and 80 per cent for the 2010-11 cohort.
“At the end of the day, graduation is our ultimate goal and through the hard work of educators and our partners, we continue to see our graduation rates rise,” said Director of Education, Manny Figueiredo. “Our commitment to having our students graduate within five years is enabling them to have a bright post-secondary future.”
The 2012-13 cohort represents students who graduated within five years by August 2017 and reflected in the outcomes related to the Board’s 2016-17 Annual Plan.
