SOUTHBRIDGE — In response to a student presentation of problems at the high school two weeks ago, Principal William Bishop challenged their high dropout rate claims while agreeing with them.

"One student dropping out of school is too many," he said. "It's a chronic problem."

Rattling off numerous numbers, mostly from state sources, Bishop argued Southbridge's annual dropout rate is 5.5 percent, a figure about twice the state average but slightly lower than the average of the school's 133 districts that exceed the state average.
