Class Statistics

**************************************************************************

Did you know that our DHS Class of 1971 was the LARGEST graduating class in DHS history? 

Well, it's true!

**************************************************************************

Here's the breakdown of our total class population as accounted for on this website:

 

 635  =  total number of June 1971 graduates (per 110th Commencement Exercises program booklet)

   (3)* = number of June 1971 graduates requesting exclusion from this website

___

 632 = number of June 1971 graduates included on our class website

    5  =  total number of August 1971 graduates (per 111th Commencement Exercises program booklet)

  (0) = number of August 1971 graduates requesting exclusion from this website

___

 637 = total number of DHS Class of 1971 "graduate" classmates included on our class website

 104** = number of "non-graduate" classmates

  (1) = number of non-graduate classmates requesting exclusion from this website

 ___

 740  = grand total of DHS Class of 1971 "classmates" listed on our class website

 (65) = total number of known "In Memory" classmates listed on our class website

 ___

 675 = number of classmates in "Joined Classmates" box shown on the Home page

(315) = number of classmates who have yet to join our website ("Not Joined" members)

 ___

 360 = number of classmates who have joined our website ("Joined" members)

===

*    This includes one deceased classmate who is excluded from the In Memory roll on this website

**   These are classmates who voluntarily withdrew, were involuntarily expelled, did not meet graduation requirements by 1971 graduation dates, moved away, voluntarily enlisted, were involuntarily drafted, died prior to graduating [none in our class], or for some other reason attended DHS as part of our class between the fall of 1968 and summer of 1971 but did not graduate from DHS in June or August 1971.  The number of "classmates" who did NOT graduate in June or August 1971 was determined by identifying those classmates who were NOT listed in our Commencement Program booklet for 1971 as June 1971 graduates, nor in the 1972 Commencement Program booklet as August 1971 graduates, BUT who were nevertheless pictured or listed in any of our 1969 -1971 Pioneer Yearbooks, or listed in any of our Reunion booklets, or listed in the 2008 Dearborn High School Alumni Directory....as members of our class.  (NOTE: a very small number of students were erroneously pictured or listed in the Pioneer Yearbooks and Reunion booklets - these students are not included among the 104.)
