FLORENCE – According to a report recently released by the Montana Office of Public Instruction, Florence-Carlton High School had the highest four-year cohort graduation rate for the 2011-12 school year out of the six high schools in Ravalli County.

The term “cohort” refers to a class of students who attend the same high school and are considered to have entered ninth grade together in the same year.

Florence-Carlton’s graduation rate was 95.9 percent last year, and 100 percent of the economically disadvantaged students (students who qualify for free and reduced lunch programs) graduated.

Minority students make up very small percentage of students at schools in the Bitterroot Valley, but the report included the graduation rates for those groups as well for most schools.

Corvallis High School’s graduation rate was 94.2 percent, and 93.3 of economically disadvantaged students graduated. That district’s lowest graduation rate was 75 percent for Hispanic students.

Hamilton High School had a four-year cohort graduation rate of 88.6 percent for all students, and the graduation rate for economically disadvantaged students was 77.9 percent. That district’s lowest graduation rate was 73.2 percent for Special Education students, and the highest was 100 percent for American Indian, Asian and black students.

Stevensville High School had a graduation rate of 91 percent, with a 60 percent graduation rate for American Indian students and a 100 percent graduation rate for Asian students.

Darby High School had an 80.6 percent graduation rate, with a 73.5 percent rate for economically disadvantaged students and a 100 percent rate for Hispanic and American Indian students.

Victor High School had a graduation rate of 88.7 percent, with an 89.2 graduation rate for economically disadvantaged students and a 100 percent rate for Special Education students.

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
