This chart displays the count and percentage of students who took at least one course in a selected area for the two most recent high school graduating classes (those enrolled in Iowa public high schools in each of the four years from grades 9 to 12) by district and district enrollment category (or "size"). The students are grouped by common student population subgroups, including race/ethnicity, gender and special program eligibility (English learners (EL), students with disabilities (IEP) and students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (FRL)). The selected courses are: Algebra II, higher-level mathematics, chemistry, physics, high-quality computer science and world languages.
