The Department reports both a four-year and five-year cohort graduation rate.  The four-year cohort graduation rate is calculated for the class of 2017 by dividing the number of students in the cohort who graduate with a regular high school diploma (numerator) in four years or less by the number of first-time 9th graders enrolled in the fall of 2013 minus the number of students who transferred out plus the total number of students who transferred in (denominator).

The five-year cohort graduation rate is calculated for the class of 2016 using a similar methodology as the four-year cohort rate.  This rate is calculated by dividing the number of students in the cohort who graduate with a regular high school diploma (numerator) in five years or less by the number of first-time 9th graders enrolled in the fall of 2012 minus the number of students who transferred out plus the total number of students who transferred in (denominator).

 2017 class 4-year cohort graduation rate:  93.58%
