New York City students graduated at a record high of 77.3% last school year, continuing a steadily rising trend since 2005.

City officials celebrated the 1.4 percentage-point year-over-year rise. Some of the gains, however, are likely attributed to more students taking advantage of eased diploma requirements from the state.

The dropout rate inched upward, from 7.5 to 7.8%, after dropping slightly last year. City officials claimed that the slight uptick, in part, was due to an increase in students attending Young Adult Borough Centers. Those centers serve students who have fallen behind in credits to earn their diplomas in four years. These students are counted by the state as dropouts, according to the city.
