1 Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate (AFGR) is an estimate of the percentage of an entering freshman class graduating in 4 years. For 2006-07, it equals the total number of diploma recipients in 2006-07 divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2002-03, the 9th-grade class in 2003-04, and the 10th-grade class in 2004-05.
2 Reporting states totals include any of the 50 states and the District of Columbia that reported data.
3 DoDDS and DDESS are the Department of Defense dependents schools (overseas) and the Department of Defense dependents schools (domestic), respectively.
NOTE: Ungraded students were allocated to individual grades proportional to each state's enrollment in those grades. Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, Asian includes Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and American Indian includes Alaska Native. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.
