Paramount Unified has increased its District graduation rate to more than 87 percent, according to recently released California data, through a strategic plan that focuses on college and career success.

The District inspires students to strive for success beyond high school through annual college fairs, college prep curriculum and by waiving the cost of PSAT/SAT tests.
