The Florida Department of Education released the 2021-22 graduation rates for the state, school districts and high schools. Graduation rates represent a return to traditional graduation requirements and the exclusion of COVID-19 related waivers. The district average graduation rate among its 20* traditional high schools is 95.9%. This rate continues to outpace the state’s 87.3% average.


“The district’s graduation rate is a testament to the hard work of our teachers, students, parents, administrators and support staff. We commend them for their commitment to excellence. This is especially notable since the virus disrupted students’ lives causing the ‘covid slide’ worldwide. These students were held to pre-pandemic graduation requirements and succeeded,” said Superintendent Maria Vazquez.


Leading the district with the top three highest graduation rates for traditional high schools, are: 


2021-2022 Grad Rate

Timber Creek High School


East River High School


Lake Nona High School



The graduation rate of all Orange County Public Schools, which includes both traditional and charter schools, is 87%.
