Categories: News Releases

The numbers are in and the Toronto District School Board’s graduation rate remains at an all-time high of 85%.
TDSB students continue to graduate at this high rate thanks to a focus on connecting students with the right programs and providing targeted supports for at-risk students, re-engaging early school leavers, and expanding partnership opportunities with college, university, government and community agencies.
This most recent graduation rate is for the 2011-2016 cohort of students. To study graduation rates, the TDSB follows a group of Grade 9 students over five years.
