As she has done for the past few years, Superintendent June Atkinson celebrated the school districts and the high schools with the highest graduation rates for the last academic year. Dr. Atkinson, as well as Governor Bev Perdue attended the ceremony and both stressed the importance of having districts graduate their students.
Dr. Atkinson also mentioned that more work must be done to ensure all students graduate from high school.
It is interesting to note that several of the high schools with 100% graduation rates are schools with a specialized programs like art, science or early college. It is even more interesting to discover that for every county on the list their high schools are amongst the most socioeconomic integrated in the state.
