The Senior Exit Survey is administered annually each spring by the Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE). In 2022-23, ORE received responses from 6,620 seniors at 78 District high schools, representing 72% of enrolled 12th grade students.

Responses indicated that:

  • 79.8% of respondents intended to pursue post-secondary education within one year after high school.
  • About 81% of respondents who intended to pursue post-secondary education also intended to work (either full-time or part-time) while in school.
  • 54.2% of students who intended to pursue post-secondary education planned to attend a 4-year university or college.
  • The most popular choices of major were Health and Medicine; Science, Math, and Technology; and Business.
  • About a quarter of respondents intending post-secondary education indicated that the COVID-19 pandemic had affected their post-high school plans.
  • Over 75% of respondents somewhat agreed or strongly agreed that adults at their school helped them apply for college and navigate their high school graduation requirements.
