A student is considered a five-year graduate if they receive an OSSD within five years of starting Grade 9.

As of August 31, 2022, 83.9 per cent of students who started grade 9 in the 2017-2018 academic year graduated within four years.

As of August 31st, 2022, 84.9 per cent of students who began grade 9 in the 2018-2019 academic year graduated within four years, and 89.1 per cent of students who began grade 9 in the 2017-2018 academic year graduated within five years.
