Back to back champs! For the second straight year, Finish School schools in Florida have been awarded the Florida Department of Education’s highest rating of “Commendable,” as part of its School Recognition Program.
Congratulations to our North Carolina Schools, Commonwealth, Steward Creek and Central Wake, for receiving a grade of "Highly Rated," the top rating for NC schools participating in the state's scholastic accountability program.
Thank you to all the students, faculty, and parents that make our schools some of the best in the state.

— According to a study done by Northeastern University, more than 80 percent of the incarcerated population is high school dropouts.
