CHART: North Shore High School Graduation Rates

Here's how North Shore public high schools compare on graduation rates.

Recent data on nationwide high school graduation rates has placed Massachusetts outside the top 10 states in the nation with an average of 83 percent of students graduating.

The preliminary data was based on four-year cohort groups and released by the U.S. Department of Education on Monday. Final numbers will be released in the coming months.

Salem High finds itself just below that state average with an 81.7 percent rate of graduation, which is still an improvement over recent years.

When compared to other nearby public high schools, Salem is doing better than Lynn English or Lynn Classical, but trails Beverly and Danvers High.

Here's how North Shore high schools compare:

SCHOOL RATE Beverly High 88.4 Danvers High 90.6 Hamilton-Wenham 97.6 Lynn Classical 75.3 Lynn English 80.2 Lynnfield High 97.8 Manchester-Essex 97.3 Marblehead High 96.9 Masconomet 99.4 Peabody High 82.2 Salem High 81.7 Salem Academy 87.1 Swampscott 96.8 Wakefield High 93.5

81.7% may be an improvement over recent years but I would like to still the rate for "recent years"

Oh, so we beat Lynn. Terrific. I suspect that, at the rate the city is going, we'll be right there with them shortly. 20% - one fifth - of the kids never graduate. Pathetic. SHS - the new Bentley? And hey, Peabody, you're not looking so good, either.
