Gladstone graduation rate tops state average by nearly 6%

Overall, the Gladstone School District’s four-year graduation rate for the class of 2022 was 87%. That’s more than 5% above the state graduation rate and 1% higher than Gladstone’s 2021 rate.

“We’re excited that Gladstone continues to outpace the state in on-time graduation,” said Gladstone High School Principal Kevin Taylor. “As we emerge from the pandemic, our team has put a lot of extra academic and emotional supports in place to help more students succeed.”

Gladstone again showed strong performance by some historically disadvantaged groups. More than 92% of Gladstone’s Hispanic/Latino students graduated on time, beating the state average by over 13%. Impressively, more than 95% of Gladstone students who took or concentrated in career-technical [CTEC] classes graduated on time. Gladstone offers a wide array of these classes, including many options to earn college credit while in high school.
