Big School, Small School: Impact of the High School Environment.
Grabe, Mark
An investigation of the relationship between high school priorities and self-concept was undertaken. Upper- and underclassmen from large and small high schools completed questionnaires and the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale. Participation in five activity areas was related to self-concept scores using a multiple-regression technique. The perceived similarity of each student's priorities with the school's priorities was also correlated with self-concept. The relationships accounting for the greatest proportion of the variance in self-concept scores were found among small-school upperclassmen. The results were interpreted as support for Barker and Gump's argument that small school students feel a greater obligation to participate in school activities. (Author)
