“The South Carolina Department of Education’s graduation goal for all Districts is to be above the 90th percentile by the year 2035,” said Assistant Superintendent Jane Harrison. “I am so proud that Anderson One seniors set lofty goals for themselves and are inspired by their teachers and families to reach those goals and graduate with a high school diploma. They are to be commended for earning 91.6% grad rate during such challenging times created by a pandemic. We have had a grad rate above 90% since 2014. This has become a consistent trend for Anderson One. ”
