There's a simple explanation for a low graduation rate in Redmond of just 46% getting their diploma in four years. District spokesman Jon Bullock says many students are taking advantage of a new advanced diploma program that skews the report. "Our four year graduation rate appears lower than the state average and our regional peers because we have over 100 students each year pursue our advanced diploma, although they would be eligible for a regular diploma if they chose to pursue that. So in the 4 year graduation rate they don't look like they're graduates, even though they're qualified to be that." To get a more accurate picture; the five year rate accounts for those students and puts Redmond at 75%, higher than the state five year average of 69%.
