Grade 12 students from Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) had impressive diploma marks for the 2017-18 year.
The diploma results showed that 86 per cent of students reached the acceptable standards on all diploma examinations, with 22 per cent achieving standards of excellence.
These results are above average for the province and higher marks than EIPS has seen in previous years.
The EIPS board receives an accountability pillar from the province each year, showing how their students did compared to previous years and to the rest of the province. The district uses the data to analyze where their strengths are and what areas they need to improve upon.
"It is always being conscience and aware and looking at what is the data telling us," said EIPS board chair Trina Boymook. "I think it's multiple different things that would account for the results, but we're really proud of both our staff and our students and the hard work that they did."
Students scored well in English language arts, mathematics 30, social studies 30, biology 30, and science 30 in the acceptable standards category. For standards of excellence, they excelled in the areas of English language arts, French language arts and mathematics.
EIPS students also did well on their PATs during the past school year.
