SCS Reaches All-Time Grad Rate High

SCS Reaches All-Time Grad Rate High

Graduation Rate

Talk about something BIG to celebrate! The NC Department of Public Instruction released district and state graduation data and we are proud to report that Scotland County Schools reached it's highest graduation rate to date - 91% - and ranked higher than the state graduation rate by 3.4% for the 2019-20 school year. As Dr. Hargrave said, 'This is not just a celebration at the high school level. Research shows that for some students, they start thinking about dropping out as early as third-grade. We start talking to students as soon as they start school about the goal of graduating high school. While it gets reported at the high school, it’s a total district effort. While we take pride in it, we can’t be satisfied until every child graduates and our rate is 100%.'
