Palm Beach County School District Releases Updated Graduation Schedule

News Schools

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Nothing says “small and personal” like mass graduations nowhere near your actual high school, but that’s the name of the game in Palm Beach County, where a 90 percent graduation rate is considered great. To directly quote a district release:

The graduation rate for District-operated schools increased to 90 percent for the 2016-2017 school year. The graduation rate for all schools, including charter schools, was 85 percent for 2016-2017 – highest among other large, urban districts in Florida, including Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange and Pinellas counties, and higher than the the state’s average of 82.3 percent.

Here is the updated graduation list… the vast majority of graduations are taking place on the Fair Grounds on Southern Blvd in West Palm Beach.

For those graduates, friends and family attending the 4 p.m. ceremony for South Tech on Wednesday, May 23 and the 4 p.m. ceremony for Suncoast High School on Thursday, May 24,  a traffic update has been issued. There are concerts being held at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre on the South Florida Fairgrounds property the evening of those ceremonies. Additional police officers and aides will be on site to help with traffic and parking. However, plan for delays. Guests should enter through Gate 12 and are encouraged avoid Southern Blvd., Belvedere Rd. and Benoist Farms Rd. Instead, it is suggested to enter the fairgrounds using Weisman Rd. off of 441 between Belvedere Rd. and Southern Blvd.
