National Public High School Graduation Rate at 86.5 percent in School Year 2019-20 for U.S. Students

In 2019-20, the national public school adjusted cohort graduation rate for U.S. students was 86.5 percent. Although the data generally show increases in the rate from 2018-19, both overall and by reported subgroups, caution should be used when interpreting changes from prior years because the pandemic resulted in unplanned adjustments to graduation practices within and across states.
