Public high school graduation rates by state

Comparable state-by-state rates based on the number of students who graduate in 4 years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who form the "adjusted cohort" for the graduating class. From the beginning of 9th grade (or the earliest high school grade), students who are entering that grade for the first time form a cohort that is adjusted by adding any students who subsequently transfer in and subtracting any students who subsequently transfer out, emigrate to another country, or die. The statistics come from the from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. This database was posted on Oct. 17, 2016.

And you can see the latest local grad rates.
