For the 11th consecutive year, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) has reached a record-high On-Time Graduation (OTG) rate, which now stands at 93.9%. In addition, the division’s dropout rate decreased to 3%—the lowest on record. VBCPS also outperformed Virginia’s rates of 91.5% for OTG and 5.6% for dropouts.

“These remarkable numbers are testament to the hard work of our teachers, counselors, coaches and families who are invested in educating the whole child,” said VBCPS Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. “This VBCPS community endeavors every single day to meet the social and emotional needs of our students, while providing the best transformational learning experience in Virginia. We are committed to sending young learners across that graduation stage prepared for whatever calls to them, be it college, the military or a career.”
