(Indianapolis, IN)--Graduation rates are out for Indiana high schools’ Class of 2016.  In the Whitewater Valley, just about every school was well over 90%.  That includes Richmond with a graduation rate of 95.7%.  That’s a vast improvement from a decade ago, when the school was termed a “dropout factory” in a report by John’s Hopkins University with a rate of under 60%.  Centerville, Northeastern, and Nettle Creek all had rates of between 94 and 96%.  Western Wayne was the Wayne County exception.  It’s rate was just 86.4%.  Randolph Southern had a perfect 100% rate.  Union High School had the lowest rate in our area at just 67%.
