NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A report card that tracks the achievement and growth of Tennessee schools shows the state's graduation rate improved to 88 percent, the third consecutive year it's increased.

The graduation rate is up 1 percent from last year’s 87 percent score.

Looking at Metro Nashville and the six surrounding counties, Metro was the only system to fall below the state average, with a graduation rate of 81.6 percent. Williamson, Wilson and Robertson counties all had graduation rates above 95 percent.

The report card also shows the percentage of students meeting college and career readiness benchmarks on the ACT, as well as student enrollment and ethnicity.
