Pursuant to ARS § 15-1822, the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) produces annually a "High School Report Card", which provides information on how graduates from Arizona’s high schools perform in their first semester at Arizona’s public universities.
No single report provides a complete picture of Arizona's high school graduates’ success in post-secondary education. The universe of students in this report is limited to Arizona undergraduate students who graduated from an Arizona high school the previous academic year. It does not include data on high school graduates who attended any other post-secondary institution, including an in-state or out-of-state community college, an in-state private institution, or an out-of-state public or private institution.
Additionally, due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law that protects the privacy of student records and prohibits the public release of educational records or information identifiable to a small number of students, ABOR’s high school report card includes information only from high schools that send more than five students to one of Arizona’s universities. In addition, a category of data for a particular school will be omitted if five or fewer students are included in that category.
Follow this link to search the High School Report Card to allow you to see how students from a particular high school performed at one of Arizona’s public universities in the first semester of one of three academic years (2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12). If a high school is not listed in a drop-down menu that school did not send any students to one of Arizona’s universities in that particular year and therefore data is not available due to FERPA.
System level and university summaries for the above mentioned academic years are also available online:
