Congratulations to the Class of 2015
Almost 1,100 members of the Dublin City Schools class of 2015 will participate in commencement ceremonies on Saturday in the Schottenstein Center on the campus of The Ohio State University. I am looking forward to the honor of joining this class in graduation exercises and taking the time to congratulate them.
High School graduation is one of the most important days in the lives of students and parents. As educators, when we see students moving on to higher education, employment, or the military, it provides us with a tremendous feeling of pride and represents the culmination of many years of hard work.
The class of 2015 features 222 students who will graduate at the top of their class with a cumulative GPA of 4.1 or above. The median GPA of the class of 2015 is an outstanding 3.3. Two-hundred and eighty-five seniors will graduate Summa Cum Laude (4.0 and above), 157 students will graduate Magna Cum Laude (3.75 to 3.99), and 138 have earned Cum Laude (3.5 to 3.749) honors. More than 400 students will graduate with an Honors Diploma, which is truly a remarkable number.
The members of this class have been some of our most exceptional to date when it comes to challenging themselves with some of the most rigorous courses our district has to offer. The class' enrollment in the district's Advanced Placement courses has continued to evolve during their academic careers. This senior class has had the opportunity to participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, experiencing a wide variety of challenging coursework combined with community service components. This international credential continues to be an important factor in the college admissions process. Forty-nine of our students are graduating with an IB Honors Diploma. More than 85% of the class of 2015 has taken at least one Advanced Placement or IB class during their high school academic careers.
Jerome Senior Linda Qin achieved a truly rare feat this year by being named one of only about 100 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the entire United States. She will be flown to Washington D.C. to meet President Obama next month.
The class of 2015 has seen its fair share of success outside the classroom as well. This year's graduating class has been involved in some of the best band and choir performances in Ohio and superior ratings at music competitions have been regular occurrences. Our theatre departments’ have produced dramas, comedies, and musicals which have been enjoyed by thousands of people during the past four years. In the visual arts, students have produced an extraordinarily wide array of works of art, earning them many state and national awards. Athletically, this year's graduates have earned Ohio Capital Conference championships in a wide variety of sports during their careers. District, Regional and State championships have been won on the courses, courts, fields, rinks, and in the pools. Community service has been a constant theme for the class of 2015. This past school year, students collected thousands of dollars, toys, blankets, food, and other items for worthy causes all over Central Ohio. The senior members of my Superintendent's Student Advisory Committee were integral in planning the district-wide dodgeball fund-raiser which raised more than $17,000 in March and I will miss them all next year.
Dublin City Schools' interest in the success of our students does not end with graduation. In two years, and again in five years, we will survey the class of 2015. We want to know if they felt prepared for college coursework, if they finished college, and what types of professions they entered after school.
As educators, it is extremely gratifying each year when another class of our young people moves on to the next step in life. The class of 2015 is representative of why we do what we do.
I am very proud of the cultures of each of our three high schools.
These seniors have helped create an environment in which it is cool to take challenging courses, it is cool to be respectful toward staff, and it is cool to treat one another with dignity and kindness.
Congratulations to parents and students of the graduating class of 2015.
