More Kentucky high-school graudates from 2010 have enrolled in college than any other year on record, and Jessamine County’s class is ahead of the curve.
The P-20 Data Collaborative calculated the college-going rates for the more than 43,000 public high-school graduates from 2010. A report from the group says 61.4 percent of these graduates have enrolled in college; Jessamine County’s rate was 62.6 percent.
The Kentucky High School Feedback Report includes individual reports for 228 public high schools in the state and is based on 2010-2011 college enrollment data, not surveys of students.
In addition to including information about each of Kentucky’s public high schools, the report includes comparable data about school districts, the proportion from each school that went to college and the types of schools they are attending, ACT scores and information by race and family income. At total of 74.7 percent of West Jessamine High School’s 2010 graduates have enrolled in college; that figure is 58.8 percent for East Jessamine. Data from The Providence School was not available.
