Palmerton Area School District is at the top of the food chain in relation to high school graduation rate percentage.
Superintendent Carol Boyce informed the school board on Tuesday that the district has a 96.21 percent graduation rate, which ranks first among its contemporaries.
"Compared to other school districts in the Colonial League and Carbon-Lehigh Intermediate Unit, we are tops in both," Boyce said. "To our staffs, students, administrators, and school board, I congratulate you."
Board President Barry Scherer said the district's graduation rates speak volumes.
