Grand Junction, CO – School District 51 topped the state’s graduation rate for the fourth consecutive year in 2018, according to data released today by the Colorado Department of Education. In District 51, 80.9 percent of the Class of 2018 graduated within four years of starting high school (known as the four-year graduation rate), beating the state average of 80.7 percent. 

District 51 continues to follow an upward trend in graduation rates, with the Class of 2018’s four-year graduation rate a full percentage point higher than that of the Class of 2017. Even more students considered part of the Class of 2018 will continue their high school education and graduate within the next few years; the state tracks five-year, six-year, and seven-year graduation rates to track those students’ success.

Six of the district’s eight high schools increased their four-year graduation rates in 2018 compared to 2017, and one – Gateway School – had the same rate as last year.
