The 2015 Four Year Graduation Rate for the Douglas County School System’s Class of 2015 is 88.2, the highest rate achieved in the district in many years. It represents a 12.6 point increase above the 2014 score of 75.6 and exceeds the current Georgia score of 78.8 for 2015. Douglas County has seen a steady increase in the graduation rate using the adjusted cohort model and saw a significant increase this year. The U.S. Department of Education mandated that Georgia report the graduation rate using the adjusted cohort rate during the last five years.

Increases in the graduation rate at Douglas County School System high schools from 2014 to 2015 are as follows:

·         Alexander High School: 87.1 to 89.7

·         Chapel Hill High School: 79.8 to 89.6

·         Douglas County High School: 75.1 to 87

·         Lithia Springs High School: 62.9 to 87.7 (24.8% growth, largest increase among DCSS schools)

·         New Manchester High School: 75.6 to 89.3


“The hard work of our students, teachers, principals, and parents, along with our Student Achievement and Leadership department, is evident with our continued increase in the graduation rate. We are certainly pleased by the continued success of our students,” said Douglas County School Superintendent Dr. Gordon Pritz.

Douglas County’s graduation rate is higher than a number of metro Atlanta school districts including: Carroll, Carrollton City, Cherokee, Cobb, Coweta, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Haralson, Henry, Paulding, and Rockdale.
