The New York City Education Department has released its latest report grading more than 300 high schools. Most of the schools came out above average.

"A" grades went to 45 per cent of high schools.

Thirty percent received a B grade.

Grades of "C" went to 19 percent and "D" went to 7 per cent

Only one school earned an "F."

The grades are based on student progress and achievement, attendance and surveys about learning environment.

Only about 60 percent of city high school students graduate within four years, but Chancellor Klein says more students are on track to graduate on time.
