The graduation rate at all Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD) high schools for the 2017-2018 year increased to 89.3 percent from 87.8 percent, a 1.5 percent increase. The rate is more than 6 percent higher than the California average and has surpassed the Riverside County average of 88.9 percent.
Since 2010, MVUSD has increased the graduation rate by 23.6 percent and all four comprehensive high schools now boast rates of at least 92 percent.

“We are thrilled to see all four high schools with a rate exceeding 92 percent,” said Superintendent Dr. Martinrex Kedziora, “We are ‘Shining Brighter with Excellence on Purpose’ in our goal to see all students graduate high school ready for college and/or a career.”
“It is with great pride that we now have a graduation rate greater than the national, state, and county rates,” Superintendent Kedziora added.
