HOW WE COMPARE WITH OTHER DISTRICTS IN THE STATE

(Based on the 2013 Annual District Report Cards released by the South Carolina Department of Education)

 

The Darlington County School District has the highest graduation rate in the state, as ranked by the South Carolina Department of Education for the 2013 annual school and district report cards. The district"s graduation rate is 93.4%, compared to the state average of 77.5%.

• The Darlington County School District has the 4th lowest dropout rate in South Carolina (0.4%), according to the South Carolina Department of Education. When talking about dropout rates, the lower the rates, the fewer the dropouts.

•  The Darlington County School District ranks sixth among the 84 South Carolina school districts in terms of academic achievement, according to the annual report card ratings issued by the South Carolina Department of Education.

•  In every high school in our district, more than nine out of every ten high school freshmen will graduate in four years, according to the South Carolina Department of Education. Mayo High School for Math, Science & has a 100% graduation rate.

•  More children are reading at or above grade level by grade three, thanks to the efforts of our primary schools (grades K-2). Reading at or above grade level by third grade ensures children have a better chance of success later in school.
