New in this years Release is the Graduation Rates by Diversity, see slides two through twelve.

Henry County Schools’ latest numbers ranks it second among the 10 largest school systems in the state, trailing only Forsyth County Schools. Additionally the system average is 7 percentage points above Georgia's Graduation Rate of 71.5 percent.

The upward trend in the district’s graduation rate is no cause for celebration, as there are still recognizable shortfalls in all schools, as evidenced in the slides.

“Anytime we see increases in student achievement, especially with our graduation rate, we are pleased,” said Hildreth. “Our rate is well above the state average, and we rank near the top when comparing the rates of the largest school systems in Georgia. We will not be satisfied with anything less than a continuing increase in this measure of student success. Our success over the past two years is due to the hard work of students, teachers, parents, and community members. As always, we want to thank the Henry County community for supporting student achievement.”

This is the third year using the U.S. Department of Education formula known as the adjusted cohort rate. Graduation numbers are calculated based on the number of students graduating on-time within four years, starting their freshman year.
