Meeting Adolescent Need: Four Effective Middle Schools.
This study describes four middle schools which educate poor and minority students more effectively than most middle schools in the New York City public school system. These schools were studied in order to define the characteristics associated with academic effectiveness. Chapter 1 provides the demographics and the test score results for each school. Chapter 2 presents the characteristics and policies of each school's administrative staff and what effects these policies have on the school climate. Chapter 3 presents descriptions of each school's organization and curriculum. Also included in this chapter are descriptions of the following topics: (1) guidance practices; (2) enrichment programs; and (3) special education programs. Chapter 4 reports which specific practices reinforce and sustain each school's overall effectiveness. The study includes 7 tables and a bibliography of 10 publications. (JS)
