Nebo School District continues to produce one of the highest graduation rates in the country. Nebo’s graduation rate is 90 percent, significantly higher than the state average of 85 percent.
“Obviously this is great news for Nebo public schools and even better news for Nebo’s students,” said Nebo Superintendent Rick Nielsen. “We attribute this to the sound decision making and planning from the faculty, staff, administration and school board as well as the students’ thirst for excellence and parents’ expectations for quality education. We engage, empower, and collaborate to ensure student success.”
Secondary Director, Ann Anderson, said, “Congratulations to our administration, faculty, and students for continued success on graduation requirements. We look forward to future opportunities and success in the secondary programs.”
