Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to identify aspects of successful Advanced Placement programs in small schools of enrollments of 600 or fewer, and to describe the strategies that are used in these schools to make their programs successful. The study includes a pilot research project with a small school with a floundering program identifying the major problems that it has faced in starting and creating its program along with cases of two additional small schools that have found success with their programs. The cases of the successful schools are analyzed to find the aspects of the programs that have led to their success to provide struggling schools with suggestions for improvements of their programs.
