How Did Graduation Rates Change At Each D.C. Public School?

D.C. Public Schools reported a 64 percent graduation rate for the Class of 2015, a six point increase after years of incremental improvement.

Some schools saw double-digit increases. A few — including Ellington School of the Arts and Phelps ACE — saw declines.

The numbers are preliminary, and schools still have a chance to appeal. The Office of the State Superintendent of Education plans to release final numbers in October for both traditional and charter schools.
