SHREWSBURY, Mass. — There were 360 graduates in Shrewsbury High School's class of 2012, and most went on to attend four-year colleges.

This information was presented to the school committee Wednesday by Shrewsbury High School Principal Todd Bazydlo and Nga Huyuh, guidance counselor.

According to the Shrewsbury High School Future Plans report, 78 percent of 2012 grads went on to a four-year college. Hyuh said that percentage is similar to 2011.

The report states 17 percent attend a two-year college, while 5 percent entered the job market or military, or were described as "undecided."

Graduates attended 250 different colleges in 28 states and Canada. However, most stayed closed to home, with 79 percent attending college in New England.

The top two most popular schools were Quinsigamond, a two-year community college, which took in 56 grads, and UMass Amherst, a four-year state school with 40 graduates.
