Camden Grad Rate Continues To Soar Above State Average
The Georgia Department of Education recently released public high school graduation rate data revealing that Camden County High School continues to make steady increases in the four-year cohort graduation rate. This is the eighth year Georgia has calculated the graduation rate using an adjusted cohort rate formula. In FY18, Camden County’s graduation rate rose to 92.6 percent.

The FY18 graduation rate marks a steady increase over the FY17 graduation rate of 91.9 percent and more than a 17 point increase over six years from the FY12 rate of 75.19 percent. While the average graduation rate increased for the entire state, Camden County maintained a rate that is 11 percentage points higher than the state average of 81.6 percent.

In response to this continuing positive trend, Dr. John Tucker, Principal of Camden County High School, commented; “We are proud to see our graduation rate continue to increase and will continue to implement programs to give our students every opportunity to succeed.” Dr. Pennie Davis, Director of Secondary Education, attributes the increased rate and notable success to “many years of tireless effort and commitment by the administration, faculty, and staff of Camden High who work hard to ensure students can reach their maximum potential.”
