    High School Readiness Index: Are You Ready for High School?

    Research shows the following factors strongly affect your chance of graduating from high school.  How well do they describe YOU?

                               

      My Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.5 or above.

      My attendance is at least 96% or better.

      I have no D's or F's in English/Language Arts.

      I have no D's or F's in math.

      I have not been suspended.

    Q:  Why does attendance matter?
    Less than half of middle school students who were absent 8 or more days in a school year ended up graduating high school.

    Q:  Why does GPA matter?
    Only 4% of those students who left middle school with less than a 2.0 GPA graduated high school.

    Q:  Why do ELA/Math grades matter?
    Only three percent of students who had D's / F's in middle school ELA and math graduated from high school.

    Conclusion:  Your effort in Middle School sets the path for high school.  Do the right thing now!
