In the Wichita area, students' likelihood of graduating from high school depends in part on where they go to school.
The statewide graduation rate for Kansas in 2017 was 86.9 percent. At high schools in the Wichita area, however, graduation rates ranged from 65.4 percent at Wichita Southeast to 98.3 percent at Maize South.
The Wichita district’s graduation rate for 2017 was 73.9 percent – still below the state average but well above Wichita’s 2009 graduation rate of 63.1 percent.
The graduation rate is measured by dividing the number of graduates by the number of freshmen who started high school four years earlier — minus students who transfer, leave the country or die during that four-year period. Students who take five years to graduate are not included in the calculation.
