Our Impact

Graduation rates among high schools opened by the Office of New Schools consistently show strong improvement over the schools they replaced.  For example, the campuses below, the overall high school graduation rate increased from 37.9% in 2002 (at the large high schools in the building) to 67.7% in 2012 in the new high schools in the same building. This translates to 2,056 more graduates per year.
