VCUSD Graduation Rates
There has been some question as to whether it is true that Vallejo High School has one of the fastest growing graduation rates in the state. The comparison dates for the charts provided are from the 2010-2011 School Year to the 2014-2015 School Year. The results for the 2015-2016 School Year are not yet available. For each school district, the two high schools with the highest graduation rates were selected. The selected districts are either districts we use regularly as comparison districts or districts of similar size and demographics. You will notice from the chart in the link below, that of the schools represented here, Vallejo High School, has the highest rate of improvement with 23.8 percent points over 4 years. Jesse Bethel High School is 5th with 15.7 percent points over 4 years. As stated before, the growth is a function of the creation of our Wall to Wall Academies and the implementation of 4-Year Plans, as well as, the hard work and dedication of our staff members and our capable students.
