The U.S. is getting high marks when it comes to high school graduation rates.
The White House announced Monday that during the 2014-2015 school year, more than 83 percent of high school students received a diploma in four years.
That number is a "record new high" since 2010 when all states started using a four-year adjusted measure of high school graduation rates.
