Montgomery County Public School Graduates
This fall, one-in-four (26.2%) of last spring’s MCPS graduates enrolled at the College (that is, 2,677 of 10,233 graduates). This percentage is up slightly from last year’s 25.0% share of the 2010 MCPS graduates.
Northwest (n=166), Gaithersburg (n=159), Clarksburg (n=145), Montgomery Blair (n=134), and Watkins Mill (n=130) were the high schools that sent the largest number of their Class of 2011 graduates to the College. As a proportion of the individual high schools’ graduating classes that attended the College in the fall 2011 semester, Seneca Valley led with 39.6%, followed by Wheaton and Gaithersburg (38.6%), Rockville (36.6%), Kennedy (36.5%), Watkins Mill (36.2%), and Einstein (34.3%). Only five of the twenty-five MCPS high schools sent fewer than one-in-five (20%) of their 2011 graduates to the College in the fall semester.
The College’s draw rate from recent graduates of the Upper Region high schools (31.8% of graduates) was significantly greater than the draw rate from the Lower Region (24.2%) and the Middle Region (23.8%) high schools.
