Historical Enrollment Figures for Hillsboro School District
†Remember that District numbers include some students who are not enrolled in our comprehensive high schools or in HOA. These could be students at Miller Education Center East, in our Transition Program, adjudicated youth, or students who are on out-of-district placements.
*Please refer to the document Understanding Graduation Rates for more information.
And please refer to 2014-15 Grad Rate Information for comparisons to other districts and historical data.
**Other Completers/Completion Rate includes graduates with a regular or modified diploma, as well as those with an Adult High School Diploma, Extended Diploma, or GED. In 2014-15, 102 students were pursuing an alternative certificate or were continuing their enrollment, and 187 were considered other non-completers--meaning they had either dropped out or had not declared their plans for completing the credits necessary for graduation.
***Please note that the drop-out rate is still calculated using the NCES model, which divides the total number of drop-outs in a given year in grades 9-12 by the number of students in grades 9-12--the numbers and rate do not correlate directly to information about the cohort.
Therefore, the following is true about the graduating class of 2015, which is actually the 2011-12 cohort, as the cohort is named by the first year students entered high school:

Education and community involvement comprise one of the focus areas of the 2035 Plan. The first initiative in this focus area is to "pursue and promote continued excellence in Hillsboro schools," which includes these action items:
