Abstract

US high schools appear to measure success according to the number of students admitted into four–year institutions each year. Although this is one measure, there are some schools that focus on developing important life skills needed to become productive members of society. Online surveys were sent out to alumni, students, teachers, and parents to a student–centered charter school in Minnesota to explore definitions of success and determine if this school teaches life skills.
