Indiana high school graduation goals have either maintained or surpassed expectations.

The graduation goal was set at 90 percent. Eleven schools in Northwest Indiana met that goal in 2010.

The Post-Tribune reports Morgan Township Middle High School in East Porter County was one of five schools to graduate 100 percent of its students in 2010.

Other schools, such as Lew Wallace and Roosevelt high schools in Gary, also made significant gains.

Campagna Academy in Schererville was at the bottom of the state’s list, graduating only 17 percent of high schoolers.
