Huntington Graduation Statistics
Huntington High School's Class of 2011 has dispersed to all points, with most members enrolled in college and the rest pursuing career or technical programs, taking time to travel as part of a college approved "GAP" year or directly entering the work force.
The Class of 2011 numbered 293 students, of which 273 earned diplomas. Of the graduates, 60 percent are now attending four-year colleges while 32 percent opted for two-year schools. Another eight percent are working, in GAP programs or in other educational programs.
The statistics were compiled by Kitty R. Klein, district director of guidance, K-12. The figures show that 46 percent of the Class of 2011 earned Regent's diplomas, 25 percent qualified for an advanced Regent's diploma and another 18 percent garnered an advanced Regent's diploma with honors. One percent of graduates were given Regent's diplomas with honors. Eight percent of last year's seniors earned local diplomas, two percent received IEP diplomas and less than one percent qualified for a GED.
"The statistical summary is valuable as we move forward," Superintendent James W. Polansky said.
