    Edmonds-Woodway High School graduates in June.

Every June, a new class of students graduates from local high schools. But some don't. One measure of a high school or school district is the rate of on-time graduation -- the percentage of students who graduate within four years. Here's our annual look at area school districts and major high schools.

In 2011, the state changed the way it calculates graduation rates to comply with the federal No Child Left Behind law. In previous years, we listed several years' worth of graduation rates for each school district and selected high schools. This year we list only two years' worth of data, due to that change in methodology.

The most recent data available are for the 2011-12 school year.
