College & Career Readiness

New Hampshire Department of Education is dedicated to ensuring that all students graduate high school and are prepared for college and career success. Adjusted 4 and 5 year Cohort Graduation rates are used to monitor high school graduation outcomes. Annual Dropout rates (not including early exit students) are also studied to ensure that all our students get the opportunity to graduate high school. The Post-Secondary enrollment data shows how many of our students that completed high school move on to enroll in either a 2-year or a 4-year higher Education Institution. This data is obtained through the use of the National Student Clearinghouse services as well as data obtained from the university System of NH.
