Mobile County Public Schools increases four-year,
on-time graduation rate to 86 percent
MOBILE, AL -- Mobile County Public Schools increased its graduation rate to 86 percent, according to the Alabama Department of Education.
This is the four-year, on-time graduation rate, which means 86 percent of the freshmen who entered high school in 2011 earned a diploma on-time in the spring of 2015.
The 2015 rate, announced Monday, is an increase from 82 percent in 2014; 75 percent in 2013; and 70 percent in 2012. It keeps the district well ahead of a community-wide goal to raise the graduation rate to 80 percent by 2020, and it is higher than the national rate of 82 percent.
“The 86 percent reflects the sincere hard work of the schools and the students,” said Mobile County Public Schools Superintendent Martha Peek. “Certainly this is another exciting benchmark.”
But, Peek added, “We want to keep at the forefront that our ultimate goal is to graduate 90 percent by 2017.” Peek announced that new goal last year.
This cohort includes 3,445 graduates.
Mobile County Public Schools met a significant target this year as all 12 of its high schools have a graduation rate of more than 80 percent. Here is the school-by-school breakdown:
n  Baker, 93 percent
n  B.C. Rain, 91 percent
n  Blount, 81 percent
n  Bryant, 87 percent
n  Citronelle, 91 percent
n  Davidson, 90 percent
n  LeFlore, 86 percent
n  Mary G. Montgomery, 84 percent
n  Murphy, 88 percent
n  Theodore, 84 percent
n  Vigor, 83 percent
n  Williamson, 81 percent
Not only are more students graduating from high school, but they are also graduating college and career ready. According to the Alabama Department of Education, students are considered “college and career ready” if they meet at least one of these six criteria:
n  Benchmark on the ACT
n  Earn college credit through dual enrollment
n  Enlist in the military
n  Pass an Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exam
n  Benchmark on the ACT WorkKeys
n  Earn an industry-recognized career credential
Representatives from various high schools spoke of the progress Mobile County Public Schools has made in each of these areas during Monday’s announcement.
For example, 1,453 students took 2,715 Advanced Placement exams last year; nearly 1,000 students enrolled in dual-enrollment courses; and students earned 11,062 career credentials. In addition, the Class of 2015 earned $97 million in college scholarships, with one out of every three students receiving at least one offer.
