Overall, Osceola County significantly improved its graduation rate to 86.3 percent, a 4.3 percentage point increase over last year and an increase of 8.2 percentage points since 2013. Osceola's graduation rate is now four percentage points higher than Florida's statewide graduation rate of 82.3 percent, which increased 1.6 percentage points over last year. In comparison of graduation rates, the Osceola School District is now ranked the third highest among neighboring counties in the Central Florida coalition, and ranked 15 out of 67 counties in the state of Florida.

“Our increase in the graduation rate is attributed to our intense focus on high-quality instruction by dedicated educators with a strategic focus on preparing students for postsecondary education,” said Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace. “High school graduation is not the end, but the beginning of the journey.”
