In an ethnically diverse California high school, high-risk migrant students persevere in school in significantly higher numbers than nonmigrant Mexican American classmates. Migrant Education Program staff foster a sense of belonging and community and facilitate student engagement through caring relationships with students, student access to institutional support, and activities that validate students' home cultures.
