Grace King High School "We took pride in the fact that we were the best high school, but we still had only 74% of our freshmen going to 10th grade...Every teacher in the first year that touched 9th graders had to teach Career Choices because we wanted to see how it would work. Unbelievably, the kids bloomed...It was just amazing. At the end of the year, 96% of our students went from 9th grade to 10th.
