Jurupa USD graduation rate: 89.2 percent.
Riverside County graduation rate: 87.4 percent.
California graduation rate: 82.3 percent.
Excerpt: "The county, which has the state's third-highest graduation rate, 87.4 percent, is 'moving upward faster than any other system that's close to our size,' (Riverside County Superintendent of Schools Kenn) Young said."
