Florida’s high school graduation rate is the percentage of students who graduated with a standard diploma within four years of their initial enrollment in ninth grade.
Graduation rates provide information about performance of schools and future employability of students. Higher salaries are typically available to high school graduates, as most employers consider a high school graduate as someone who remained committed to finishing school and pursuing their education. Receiving a high school diploma enables someone to pursue a higher education, including vocational school, trade programs, a certified work-program or college. A high school diploma is simply the doorway to even more available long-term career opportunities.
