High school passing rates


Three-year trends in the passing rates for grade 10 English and math, exams which are required for graduation. The Boston Globe ranked these districts by the average of two numbers: the percentage of students passing English, and the percentage of students passing math. The state has not released the percentage of students who met the graduation requirements by passing both tests. Districts with fewer than 10 students taking the test are not listed.
