The school district has released statistics on the total number of students to achieve scholarships at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. A total of 2,075 students secured more than $63.1 million in scholarships or grants to further their education.
The 2019 class of seniors consisted of 5,754 graduates. More than two-thirds, or 67 percent, said they plan to attend a four-year college, with another 21 percent enrolling in a two-year college and 2.5 percent heading to a continuing education opportunity. More than 5 percent, or 337 students, said they plan to go directly into the workforce, with 1.5 percent (90 students) enlisting in the military. Just over 1 percent, or 79 students, plan to take a “gap year,” meaning they’ll wait a year before deciding on a life path.
