The Rochester City School District is the only one of New York’s big five districts, which consists of New York City, Yonkers, Syracuse, and Buffalo, to have its graduation rate drop.

Rochester’s graduation rate for students who entered the 9th grade in 2009 and graduated in June 2013 was 43 percent, down from 43.4 percent for students in 2008 cohort. Buffalo’s students made the biggest gain at 53.4 percent, up from 46.8 percent for the students in the 2008 cohort. The statewide graduation rate increased slightly to nearly 75 percent.

Students need to pass eight Regents exams with a score of 65 or higher to graduate with a Regents diploma in New York.
