2 area school systems top grad rate list
The Montgomery County schools have the highest graduation rate among the country's 50 largest school systems, an education news outlet reported Thursday. Fairfax County isn't far behind--in second place.
Figures from Education Week show 83.1 percent of Montgomery's class of 2007 and 82.5 percent of Fairfax's graduated from high school within four years. The rates differ somewhat from state calculations because they use federal rather than state data to make the comparisons.
Anne Arundel County was seventh on the list, with a graduation rate of 75.2 percent. Prince William County was 15th, at 65.7 percent. Prince George's County was 30th, at 59.3 percent. D.C. schools were not included in the comparison.
