High school administrators and staff are continuously trying to find ways to assist adolescents who are struggling with the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional challenges of high school. This study focuses on the administrator, teacher and student perspectives of strategies that are implemented to assist struggling students.
This qualitative study is divided into five chapters. Chapter One introduces a discussion of the problem, and significance and implications of the problem. Chapter Two is a review of the literature on adolescent development, the history of the American High School, and high school reform initiatives. Chapter Three reviews the design and methodology of the study, and how the data was analyzed. Chapter Four provides a descriptive narrative of the high school and program studied as well as detailed information from interviews and surveys related to the sub-questions of the study. Chapter Five presents the conclusions, implications and recommendations for further study.
The data collected provided detailed descriptions of the strategies being used to reach students who are becoming "at-risk" of not graduating from high school, and discusses the commonalities between the data collected from the administrators, staff and students.
