College Reports from all of our graduates are received by the Middle Atlantic State Association; unless their record is satisfactory, our high school would be dropped from the Accrediting List. While the State Department of Education requires by 72 units for graduation, our high school requires 80 units, excluding physical education.
What is the record of our graduates not attending college?
Our high school was open for student enrollment in February, 1929. the first class was graduated in June, 1931. Figures in the tabulation below include the class which was graduated the previous June. For example, the 1937 calculation is a report on the class which was graduated last June.
The percentage employed indicates those who have entered office positions, trades, stores, and miscellaneous occupations. It is encouraging to note that unemployment is no longer a major problem among our high school graduates. In the year 1931, only 6.9% of our graduates were able to go directly from high school to employment, while in 1937 42% have found employment before October 15th. It seems fair to assume that additional members of the class have been employed since that date. The leading employment for the graduating class of 1937 was office work, which attracted 27.1% of our graduates. Guidance and placement of graduates is definitely a function of our high school, and registration forms are sent to all students unemployed with the thought of having on file a list of those students whose services we might offer to employers. It is our experience that not all of the unemployed are interested in employment because of home conditions and other interests.
