The New Jersey Department of Education yesterday released 2011 graduation rates for high schools that were largely lower, in some cases significantly lower, than prior years.

Statewide, the rate calculated using the “four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate” formula now required by the federal government was 83 percent for last spring’s high school seniors. For the Class of 2010, the graduation rate — largely self-reported by schools — was 94.7 percent for New Jersey.

Read the full report and use the interactive map on NJ Spotlight. Below are 2011 graduation rates for Schools in Baristaville:

  • Bloomfield School district: 89.2%
  • Glen Ridge school district: 95.2%
  • Millburn school district: 98.7%
  • Montclair school district: 89.0%
  • South Orange –  Maplewood school district: 91.9%
  • West Orange school district: 83.8%

    The self-reported rate was 94.7% and the new non-self reported rate is 83%?

    Gosh, I just can’t imagine what happened.

    MHS went from 98.5% to 89% according to the Star Ledger.

    Does one metric require graduation in four years while the other does not?

    Why spend time wondering, ROC, when a quick look at today’s STAR-LEDGER will give you the scoop.

    Unless of course, you don’t want any nasty “facts” getting in the way of your version.
