The DeSoto Parish School System continues to be in the top tier of Louisiana School districts for Cohort Graduation Rate. A recent data release shows that DeSoto Schools are graduating seniors on time at a rate above 93 percent. This rate places Desoto Parish at a ranking of 6th among the 70 school systems in Louisiana and the highest ranking district in North Louisiana.

A graduation cohort rate is determined at the Louisiana State Department of Education by measuring how many students graduate within four years of starting high school. This means that students who began at a school as a ninth grader graduated, on time, four years later. DeSoto Parish has maintained a rate above 90 percent in this area over the last four consecutive years.
