Boyle County High School was honored Thursday for being one of the top 10 schools in Kentucky as measured by graduation rate.
Kentucky Department of Education Commissioner Terry Holliday wrote a congratulatory letter, which Associate Commissioner Felicia Cummings-Smith read at the Boyle County Board of Education meeting.
The Average Freshman Graduation Rate is based on the number of graduates divided by the number of students in the same class when they were in the ninth grade.
“Our graduation rate of 92.1 percent is a reflection of the hard work that our students and their parents have put in, as well as the commitment our staff has to removing obstacles and teaching at a high level every day,” said BCHS Principal Will Begley. “Simply put, our community and BCHS have high expectations for our children. We have a systematic approach to getting our students across the stage for their graduation so they can become a standout Kentucky graduate. I am extremely proud of our graduation rate because of the impact it has on our students throughout their lives.”
