Nearly three-quarters of students at New York City high schools are graduating in four years, according to statistics released Wednesday by the city.

The dropout rate for students was 7.8 percent, a 0.6 reduction over 2016. "We're continuing the upward trend in the overall graduation rate by retaining the growth from last year and seeing a slight growth from last year", Elia remarked.

"The numbers show that we are building on our progress with more students earning a diploma on time", said Mary Ellen Elia, state education commissioner, in a video released via the state Education Department website.

From a borough perspective, Staten Island students posted the top graduation rate and lowest dropout rate.

And though graduation rates improved for all ethnic groups, there is still a sizable gap.

"The bottom line is, it will take a few years to see if these efforts have a positive effect on our high school graduation percentage", said Mike Keckler, the communications officer for the State Board.

Some critics have questioned the significance of ever-rising graduation rates, noting constantly changing state standards along with credit-recovery options for lagging students.

They also posted the highest gain from past year with a 1.8-point hike. Black and Hispanic students dropped out at a rate of 7.9% and 10.7%, respectively, while White and Asian students dropped out at rates of 4% and 4.4%.

The state's rate has ticked up each of the past five years, steadily increasing from 74.9 percent in 2013 after remaining flat at 74 percent in 2011 and 2012.
