Stratford: 100 Percent Graduation Rate

Stratford High School is at the top of the list when it comes to making sure every kid gets their diploma.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Stratford is one of 40 schools statewide to have a 100 percent graduation rate two years running.

Principal Paul Rozak says the key to educating kids is to make sure they are in class.

He says Marathon County and its judges are very strict when it comes to dealing with truant kids. Once kids learn the consequences of skipping, they will show up more often.

After that, kids get the extra attention they need in study halls like the resource room where one teacher works with 10 to14 kids to give them individual attention.

Stratford is looking to make it three years running, all seniors are on pace to graduate this spring.
