What Happens Next? Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School’s Class of 2006 in their First Year after High School
How can we better prepare our students for college and support them during college?
Many studies show that students have a high dropout rate during their first two years of college (Swail, 2003). As a senior teacher and advisor, I assisted students in the college preparation process and wanted to know if we were successful. With this in mind, I set out to discover what we could do to better prepare future students for the transition from high school to college, and what kind of support our students need to successfully complete their first year of college.
