Education Week magazine recognized Mesa Unified School District for its graduation rates compared with districts in the nation's big cities in a recent edition.

The district was named an one of the "overachievers," based on data in the annual report, "Diploma Counts 2010: Graduation by the Numbers - Putting Data to Work for Student Success." The report looks at the 2007 graduation rates, the most recent available, at the nation's 151 big-city districts, comparing actual graduation rates to predicted graduation rates based characteristics, including district size and socioeconomic status.

Mesa, the nation's 44th largest district, was identified as a district that "beats the odds" by exceeding expected graduation rates by at least 10 percent. The district has also been named as No. 1 in graduation rates among the nation's 50 largest cities by America's Promise Alliance for two consecutive years.
