Title:Increasing the achievement of Native American youth at early college high schools
Short Description:As part of the national Early College High School Initiative, a new approach to improving high school and college graduation rates is underway in Washington State.
Annotation:"A bold approach to improving high school and college graduation rates of Native American students is underway in Washington State. Three secondary schools, Ferndale High School, Medicine Wheel Academy, and Tulalip Heritage are developing programs to begin late 2003 that forego the all-too-common remediation options for Indian students. Instead, these three sites have increased their expectations and academic rigor. There is so much rigor, in fact, that ninth grade students will spend part of their school day taught by college faculty. By 2005, when the students are 11th and 12th graders, it is anticipated that all their courses will be college ones. By 2007, most of the Ferndale, Medicine Wheel, and Tulalip students will graduate from the integrated high school and college programs, and at 18 or 19 years of age, will enroll as juniors at four-year institutions to complete their baccalaureate degrees."
