The Oklahoma State Department of Education announced Thursday that 90 Oklahoma high schools have received the College Success Award from GreatSchools.org.
Owasso High School was named a recipient for excelling at preparing students to enroll and succeed in college. The school reported a 49% college enrollment rate compared to the state’s average of 39%.
Oklahoma’s recipients are among 1,742 winners nationally that have demonstrated successful track records of graduating students who enroll in two- or four-year colleges, are ready for college-level coursework and persist on to their second year.
“These schools are doing the important work of preparing students who choose to attend college for rigorous post-secondary pursuits,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister said. “This is an important component to building a strong economy for the future.”
