For the first time in at least seven years, more than 90 percent of the seniors at Franklin Community High School graduated within four years.
Franklin’s graduation rate had been the lowest in Johnson County, and the high school struggled to rise above the statewide graduation rate for years. But at the end of last school year, 93 percent of Franklin’s seniors graduated on time.
That’s the same graduation rate as Center Grove, Whiteland Community and Indian Creek high schools. At 95 percent, Greenwood Community had the county’s highest graduation rate last school year, according to numbers released by the state Wednesday. The graduation rate for Edinburgh Community High School was 85 percent.
