But anyone who has ever applied to college knows the importance of the SAT and college entrance exams. We’re glad that our students do so well on these key exams.” 

The school’s four-year graduation rate reached 90 percent, while the five-year graduation completion index improved to 92 percent. 

Said King, “We’re proud of our continued progress on graduation rates. The four-year graduation rate for 2017 is 90 percent, and our graduation completion index — which includes five-year graduates — has climbed to 92 percent. We’re celebrating both accomplishments and want to do even better.”
