Four-Year High School Graduation Rate


Target: The target for the graduation rate is at or above 85 per cent by 2024

How we are doing now

The Graduation Rate trend is increasing as we move towards the target.

Data Source

Education and Early Childhood Learning tracks individual students in public and funded independent schools from Grade 9 and calculates the percentage who graduate within four years. The rates do not include students from non-funded independent schools, First Nations schools (including those administered by Frontier School Division under educational agreements), or Adult Learning Centres.

The rate is adjusted for attrition, which accounts for out-of-province moves, deaths, and the proportion of students not enrolled in public or funded independent schools. The difference between the calculated rates and 100 per cent accounts for these factors, as well as for students who drop out of from school.

How we are doing over time

Note: Every year, parents of new or continuing students can indicate if they are declaring their child’s Indigenous identity for the first time, or altering their child’s previously declared identity, or confirming that a previous declaration had been made.


Why This Matters

High school graduation is generally viewed as the minimum requirement for pursuing additional education and for entry into the world of work.

Next steps

On April 20, 2022, the Manitoba government launched the Manitoba K to 12 Education Action Plan in response to the 75 recommendations of the Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education (March 2021). The Action Plan includes four pillars: high-quality learning; student engagement and well-being; excellence in teaching and leadership; and responsive systems, which work together to improve educational outcomes with student achievement and well-being at the center of all planning and decisions.
