- Cartersville City Schools
Highest Graduation Rate Achieved
Last spring, 318 Cartersville High School seniors walked across the stage to begin their future while setting a district-record graduation rate of 92.2 percent since 2012 when Georgia aligned its graduation rate calculation with national standards. Cartersville High School also increased its rate by 3 percentage points over last year and surpassed the state graduation rate of 84.4 percent.
Cartersville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Marc Feuerbach said, “Graduation is not only the pinnacle of a student’s K-12 experience, but also the motivation of every staff member as they work to positively impact our students and prepare them to begin building their legacies. We celebrate this milestone attained by the dedication of our students and also our faculty and staff districtwide."
Another aspect of student success is found in the performance of students in demographic groups as defined by the Georgia Department of Education. The graduation rate of Cartersville High School students who are English Learners increased 14 percent over last year, Black students grew 11 percent, and Hispanic students rose 5 percent.
