Superintendent Eddie Tyler is “Baldwin Proud” to release impressive numbers from Baldwin County Public Schools’ 2019 graduating class.
More than 2,200 graduated last week from our eight high schools, with the official total number of graduates being 2,264 students. The largest graduating class came from Foley High School, with 450 seniors walking across the stage.
Baldwin County Public Schools supports students’ college and career ambitions. These students will go on to two and four-year colleges and universities, straight into the workforce, and others have joined the military to serve our country.
The Baldwin County Public School System’s estimated graduation rate is 91 percent for 2019, a rate which continues to climb every year for the school system. Individual schools also continue to improve, with Robertsdale High seeing a nearly 20 percent increase in graduation rate.
Over the past three years, Superintendent Eddie Tyler has placed Baldwin County’s focus on academic improvement, and it shows in this year’s seniors. Ninety-two percent of this year’s graduating class took the ACT during their 11th grade year. Also, the superintendent is proud to report 154 of this year’s seniors made a 30 or better on the ACT.
In the days to come, the school system will be releasing more graduation information, including scholarship totals showing an amazing result for this year’s senior class.
“Again, the board and I extend our congratulations to the graduates, their families and the teachers and staff who helped make this a record-breaking year – simply amazing, and I’m Baldwin Proud,” Superintendent Tyler said.
