Henry graduation rate at 78.1 pct.

The Henry County School System graduated 78.1 percent of its eligible seniors in 2014, a drop of less than half a percentage point from the previous year but still well above the state average of 72.5 percent, according to a district spokesperson. The graduation rate is third among districts with at least 3,000 eligible graduates and fifth when comparing the state’s top 10 districts. Eight of the 10 high schools in the county last year had a graduation rate above the state average, and six increased their rates from 2013. Information: visit www.henry.k12.ga.us.
