Graduation rates for the Baltimore City Public Schools have increased for all students, while drop-out rates have declined.

Officials say 72.2 percent of the Class of 2018 graduated in four years. Data also shows the increase is the largest gain in more than five years.

As a result of the increase of high school graduates, fewer students are dropping out across most groups. However, the drop-out rate for students with disabilities has increased.

“City Schools is on an upward trajectory,” said Cheryl Casciani, chair of the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners.
