News Release
Tigard-Tualatin School District Graduation Rates At All Time High - 01/20/22

Today, the Oregon Department of Education released statewide graduation rates for the class of 2021. The report shows an overall 88.22% graduation rate for the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD), increasing by 2.16% from 2020 and marking the highest reported graduation rate for TTSD. The District’s performance demonstrates growth in all student cohorts with significant gains in achievement for students with disabilities (+10.14%) and English language learners (21.3%).

“Today’s report is a strong testament to the collective student-focused commitment of TTSD’s teachers, administrators, and staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Sue Rieke-Smith. “We continue to outpace state results and close gaps in identified populations while raising achievement for all students. I cannot be more proud to serve this district, where educators are not letting our current challenges stand in the way of narrowing the achievement gap. This data is a result of the intentional strategies and data-informed collaboration efforts our team has in place to closely monitor and track students from 9th grade through graduation.”

TTSD’s overall four-year graduation rate has been on a steady climb since the 2014-15 school year, with a slight dip during the 2019-2020 school year. The 2021 graduation rate for the District’s underserved student populations grew at a higher rate than the district overall, significantly narrowing the gap for these populations. The combined disadvantaged student population group, which includes any student that is identified as underserved in at least one category, grew at twice the rate of the district overall.

“This is fantastic news for the TTSD Community,” said TTSD School Board Chair Ben Bowman. “These graduation rates are a testament to the incredible resiliency and hard work of our students and teachers during one of the most challenging periods for public education in modern history. They also prove that we can close opportunity gaps and raise achievement for all students at the same time.”

TTSD’s overall four-year graduation rate reflects the data from two comprehensive high schools and a special options program. The 2021 rates for TTSD’s individual schools are as follows:

Tualatin High School: 92.74 (92.50 for 2020)
Tigard High School: 90.45 (89.89 for 2020)
Creekside Community High School: 54.41 (48.48 for 2020)
