What incentive is there to remain in High School if you have passed all the exit exams when you are 15? I have never understood why these exams are not geared towards what a senior in high school should graduate with rather than what a sophomore has learned.

And you should fix those last two paragraphs to read: "Eighty-four percent of sophomores in California passed the English-Language Arts portion of the exam, compared to 82 percent of Sequoia High sophomore and 80 percent of Woodside High sophomores. Eighty-six percent of Sequoia sophomores and 85 percent of Woodside sophomores passed the Math section of the test, compared to 84 percent of students in the state."
