The Indiana Department of Education updates their information periodicially, so numbers may change over time.

Data Source

Indiana Department of Education,

School District rates and state rate provided by the DOE and available on their Data "Compass" (see above website).  State rate is for PUBLIC schools only. 

County level rates calculated by the Indiana Youth Institute using the School District's respective county and includes only public schools.


Data before 2006 is available upon request but not comparable as the graduation formula changed in 2006. 

Calculation of Indiana's graduation rate has varied over the years. As per legislative intent, the 2006-07 graduation rate (Class of 2007) that will be published in the 2007 Annual Performance Report will be the percentage of students who entered Grade 9 in fall 2003 and graduated in four years or less. This is the first publication of this method for calculating graduation rates. For more information, please visit
