State reports Carrollton High School graduation rate at 93%

The Georgia Department of Education’s formal release of the 2022 statewide graduation rate Oct. 6 shows Carrollton High School’s Class of 2022 left a strong legacy with a posting of 93 percent.

The data shows CHS improved its graduation rate compared to the previous year.

Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus noted that while it is important to acknowledge this increase as a metric indicating school improvement, it is also prudent to recognize the overall preparedness of the graduates and what their post-secondary plans entailed.

“We are very proud of each student for achieving this milestone and we are also proud to see what our graduates are doing after they leave the halls of CHS,” he said.

Of the Class of 2022’s 416 graduates, 62 percent planned to attend a four-year college or university and 14 percent planned to attend a two-year school/program. Three percent of the remaining students joined the military and 21 percent had plans to enter the workforce.

“I am so proud of our students and teachers for maintaining such high expectations,” said Ian Lyle, CHS principal. “As our numbers have grown, we have remained true to our pursuit of excellence, and this is demonstrated by the solid graduation rate performance every year.”
