Education in Colorado – Notes

In October, Colorado received $15 million over five years from the U.S. Department of Education to help boost graduation rates among 32 public schools. Hidden Lake High School is among the recipients.

White females are the most likely to graduate from high school. Latino boys are the least likely.

According to 2010 state profile data, Colorado had a graduation rate of nearly 72 percent. That percentage dropped to 55 percent for Latino students.

The dropout rate at Hidden Lake High School is 10 percent. According to Hidden Lake’s Dropout Rates by Gender, Grade, Race/Ethnicity and School, if students can make it through sophomore year, they’re more likely to graduate. [The dropout rate is higher among 9th and 10th graders than it is among 11th and 12th graders].
