Doddridge County Leads the State in Graduation Rate

Doddridge County Schools received the top ranking in the state in four-year graduation rate according to figures released by the West Virginia Department of Education.  Superintendent Adam Cheeseman says that this reflects the hard work put in by students and staff: “What this demonstrates is that our commitment to excellence runs throughout our district.  Students that come in to our high school as freshmen are virtually guaranteed to graduate.”  Doddridge County’s four-year graduation rate was 97.40%.  “I believe there is a strong connection between our four-year graduation rate and our 4 place showing in academic performance,” said Superintendent Cheeseman. “Maintaining a high graduation rate shows that young people in our county are becoming equipped to step into adulthood with a first-rate education and are able to enter directly into the workforce or go to college or trade school.  Fundamentally, these figures demonstrate that our young people have options that may not exist in other places.”  Data for all counties can be found on the Department of Education’s website at:
