Newberg School News

By
Real Estate Agent with The Kelly Group Real Estate

The Newberg High School dropout rate for 2007-08 was 2.93% down from 5.2 percent the previous year.  This is the lowest rate since statewide reporting began in 1991.

The 2007-08 dropout rate reflects the first year Newberg students were in small schools; rates from previous years reflected a comprehensive high school.

Principals and counselors attribute the decline in the number of dropouts to personalization in small schools.  School Principal Carol Campbell states; "small school students are known well and we track individual students who are at risk."  She adds that relationships formed with school staff members contribute to interventions with students before they drop out.  High school students are also benefiting from improved options for credit recovery and alternative school programs.  Improved reporting practices also contribute to the decline in dropouts.
