12/15/11 On December 13, the Plymouth School Board heard an update report on students who gradated in 2011. Guidance Counselor Aimee Portteus began tracking students after graduation a few years ago and now reports annually to the board on the findings.
Portteus reported that 130 of those graduating in 2011 went on to a four-year college and 45 entered a two-year or vocational program. Nine of the 265 entered the military. Although 53 are currently a part of the workforce, 18 remain unemployed. Seven certificates of completion were issued and three of the graduates were foreign exchange students.
Five students were able to complete their requirements for high school graduation or obtaining a GED during summer school.
There were an impressive number of students graduating with high academic honors. Portteus said 68 received Core 40 Academic Honors; one received Core 40 Academic Honors and Technical Honors; and 130 were extended Core 40 diplomas.
