Metro is the highest performing academic public high school in the state of Missouri, so naturally it has "great" stats. However, try these "good" stats on for size: Clyde C. Miller Academy has a 95% graduation rate with 72% of its graduates going on to college... Carnahan High School has a 97% graduation rate and 95% attendance rate... Soldan High School has 94% attendance rate and 73% of graduates go to college. For comparison sake, Mehlville High School in the County has a 94% attendance rate and 82% graduation rate with 74% of graduates going to college... Pattonville High has a 93% attendance rate with a 90% graduation rate and 66% of graduates going to college. So, as you see, there are "good" stats left for SLPS high schools other than Metro.
