According to the latest data from the Massachusetts DESE, the graduation for the Salem public school district for the class of 2013 was 85.9%, up from 78% in 2012. The graduation rate for the Salem Academy Charter School was 87.5% in 2013 and 15.4% for the Salem Community Charter School.
Salem not only improved in its overall graduation rates, but in its graduation rates at the subgroup level.
Three subgroups (female students, African American students and Asian students) had graduation rates over 90%.
Graduation rates at the subgroup level at the Salem Academy Charter School remained relatively high.
The DESE does not report subgroup information for sample sizes below a certain threshold which accounts for the missing data/subgroups.
Because it is a relatively new school, the Salem Community Charter School does not have any subgroup data from 2012.
