We are extremely proud!
Our 8th graders were invested in the process -- their grades and test scores were top notch, they researched many schools and applied to schools they were excited about.
Our students are going to high schools with an average graduation rate of 92%! This is the highest average graduation rate that Launch has ever achieved. About 80% of our students were accepted to one of their top three schools.
Our building is closed, but that didn't stop us from celebrating! We called all of our 8th graders to congratulate them and shared excitement in Crew Google Hangout sessions.
Our students even created their own high school celebration pictures for us to post. Keep scrolling for a complete list of schools students will attend in the fall.
It's great to get good news in such an uncertain time! Join us in congratulating them!
