The Byron-Bergen Senior High School class of 2018 achieved a 100% four-year graduation rate. The 2018 graduating class earned thirty-six Regents Diplomas with Advanced Designation, thirty-seven Regents Diplomas without Advanced Designations, and five Local Diplomas.
“This is a commendable accomplishment,” said District Data Coordinator Sue Riggi. “I work with numbers all day and 100% is not a statistic I often see.”
This statistic encompasses all students enrolled in the High School from their Freshmen year, as well as all students who transferred to the school any time before graduation. Students who transferred to another school district or an alternative placement within the district, such as BOCES, are not included in the statistic.
“We are very proud of this achievement,” said High School Principal Pat McGee. “It is a rare accomplishment for a school of this size and really highlights the dedication of our students, faculty, and staff.”
In the 2017 graduation year, no schools in Genesee County achieved a 100% graduation rate. Over the previous ten years, Byron-Bergen Senior High School has had an average of graduation rate over 90%. The district-wide graduation rate for the 2018 graduation year, including alternative placement and homeschooled students, is 98.8%. The results will appear on the New York State 2019-2020 Report Card that will be published spring of 2020.
