The Trillium Lakelands District School Board is happy with its high school graduation rate numbers.

The Ontario government announced its five-year graduation rate has increased to 85.5 per cent. TLDSB recorded an 82 per cent and Superintendent of Secondary School Improvement, Bruce Barrett says this number is great for the board.

He believes this increase is because of a number of successful programs.

The 85.5 per cent for the province is the highest in its history.

Moose FM is waiting to hear comments from Principals of all High Schools across Muskoka regarding these numbers.
