The adjusted cohort formula essentially divides the number of 4-year graduates (i.e., those students receiving a diploma) by the number of first-time ninth graders who entered the cohort four years earlier.
The 2015 statewide high school graduate rate is 89.67. The 2015 districtwide high school graduation for the Hoboken Public Schools is 83.3.
Under the joint leadership of the Kids First/Reach Higher Hoboken majority on the Board of Education, Hoboken High School has yet to have a graduate rate above the NJ state average.
Chart 1 compares Hoboken with the state average as well as some comparable districts in Hudson County in terms of enrollment size. Full data can be obtained on the New Jersey Department of Education website.
