dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this descriptive collective case study was to understand the stories of students who did not graduate with their cohort. The participants represented two comprehensive high schools in a large suburban school district. Data collection included an analysis of school records, observations of the participants in their classrooms, and semi structured interviews. Data were analyzed through enumerative and thematic coding using within-case and cross-case analysis. The participants struggled in the traditional comprehensive high school setting and had experiences in their lives that impacted their academic success. Several participants experienced limited success in the comprehensive high school and needed significant support. The students were successful in flexible learning environments in which they had caring relationships with adults. High school educators must work to create flexible learning supports that are personalized based on the needs of each student.eng
