The Stats

Computer Science Graduates in North Carolina

Graduates

Significant discrepancies exist between graduation rates and the percentage of students meeting North Carolina’s college/career readiness standards. While almost 90 percent of GCS students graduate on time, only 63 percent of students enroll in two- or four-year colleges. (GCS Strategic Plan 2022)

Coursework

The academic content in CTE (Career and Technical Education) courses in GCS lacks the rigor of core instructional areas. However, project-based learning is strong in CTE and is more effective in developing students’ non-cognitive skills. Both techniques are needed to maximize learning, regardless of the career or college pathway chosen. (GCS Strategic Plan 2022)

Assistance

Of those graduates enrolled in public two year programs, 41 percent require remedial or developmental course work. (GCS Strategic Plan 2022)

CTE Students

CTE (Career and Technical Education) students are significantly more likely to report that they developed problem solving, project completion, research, math, college application, work-related, communication, time management and critical thinking skills during high school. (GCS Strategic Plan 2022)
