Higher Horizons 100, 1983-1984: An Evaluative Report Number 84-11.
Hartford Public Schools, CT.
Higher Horizons 100 (HH 100) is a compensatory program in the Hartford, Connecticut public schools designed to provide underachieving and undermotivated secondary school students with an integrated program of academic, cultural, and counseling services. HH 100 services were designed to develop and improve the basic skills of language and mathematics, self concept, and school adjustment. In addition to improving basic skills, students in the HH 100 program were expected to improve their attendance records and attitudes about themselves and school. Staff and students reported positive improvements in all areas as a result of participation in the program. The 1983-84 school year was the first time since the program's inception that it did not operate under special fund aegis. Therefore, students who were underachieving, undermotivated, or deficient in one or more skill areas could be selected for instruction rather than just students who had tested below the 23rd percentile on the Metropolitan Achievement Tests reading, language, and mathematics subtests.
