Dropout recovery programs improve Native American student graduation rates

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Native American Students are at the bottom nationwide for graduation rates.

However, a report published in U.S. News said Oklahoma has the highest graduation rate for Native Americans compared with other states. The Sooner State is home to more tribes than any other state and about 9 percent of its students are Native American.

There are also special programs like I-AM-NDN through the Comanche Nation Prevention and Recovery Center to help local students stay in school. The Great Plains Score Academy helps students 16-19 who quit school, get their high school diploma.
