Los Alamos Public Schools Four-Year Graduation Rate Is 93.3 Percent

Los Alamos Public Schools

I am pleased to report encouraging news about four-year graduation rates in Los Alamos.  Recently released data show that the districtwide rate for Los Alamos Public Schools is 93.3%, up from 91.4% in last year’s report. The statewide rate is 76.9% and the national average is 85%.

I am so very proud of staff in the Los Alamos Schools who have kept their “eye on the prize” – high school graduation.  This achievement is a true testament to the hard work of LAPS students, teachers, staff, parents and the whole community.  It really is a communitywide achievement.   We recognize that numbers are not only thing.  Student and staff well-being along with helping our students discover and develop their unique strengths and move towards a future filled with opportunity are also very important.

New Mexico implemented its first 4-year cohort graduation rate in 2008.  A cohort is named according to students’ expected fourth year of high school.  More information can be found in the New Mexico Graduation Technical Manual and the Graduation Cohort FAQs
