The Georgia Department of Education released graduation rates for its high schools on November 1, 2016. NC, showing a 4.3 percent improvement from 2015 to 2016, rose from 83.7 percent to 88.07 percent.

“The increase is phenomenal because it shows yet another year that we’ve shown consistent growth,” Principal Bucky Horton said.

The increase builds on a rise from 82.9 percent in 2014 to 83.7 percent in 2015; in total, the graduation rate increased by 5.17 percent between 2014 and 2016.

“One percent growth is good, but any time you go over a two percent growth, we get excited about that,” Horton said.

Although the GADOE released only the basic numbers, with more detailed statistics yet to be released, Warriors can presumably congratulate themselves on a job well done.

“Yet again, our students and our faculty showed the Warrior Nation leading the way,” Horton said.
