Harding High School’s graduation rate increased from 70 percent to 76 percent between 2009 and 2014, according to Public School Review. However, the school’s academic scores are lower than the average of other schools, according to the website.

Harding High School had 82 percent of its seniors graduate in 2016, but they were in the bottom 30 percent of Minnesota schools on their academic scores.

On the U.S. News scoreboard, the table shows that 31 percent of Harding students reached English proficiency, 23 percent reached Mathematics proficiency and 27 percent reached the College Readiness Index.

Does it matter if students have bad academic scores but are still able to graduate? “Getting test score is important but… I think it’s fine if the students are doing fine and being able to graduate,” said Pang Yang, a junior.
