PWC high school on-time average graduation rate of 91.8 percent exceeds state average

The percent of Prince William County Public School students graduating on time for the last school year exceeds the Virginia rate. The PWCS on-time graduate rate of 91.8 percent for students who entered high school in the fall of 2013 and graduated in 2017 continued a steady climb from 83.3 percent eight years ago, and again outpaced statewide results. 

Patriot High School’s graduation rate topped the list at 97.8 percent followed by Battlefield High School at 97.3 percent.

PWCS continued to close the gap in the graduation rates of student subgroups, showing solid increases from last year and significantly outperforming results from across the Commonwealth.

Graduation rate for black students increased from 91.8% in 2016 to 92.7% in 2017, compared with 88.4% statewide; graduation rate for economically disadvantaged students increased from 88.2% in 2016 to 88.8% in 2017; and graduation rate for English Learners increased from 77.3% in 2016 to 83.1% in 2017, compared with 73.8% statewide, over 9 points higher than the state average.
