Dropouts are a major national problem confronting school districts. Educators have readily appreciated the seriousness of the problem, but have been frustrated by the lack of useful information on these students. State departments of education require districts to keep records of students who leave school, but they are often no more than bureaucratic body counts (Gastright, 1989). The purpose of this research is to identify the environmental factors that contribute to high risk behavior in junior high students. This study focused on the identification of environmental factors relating to the at-risk student in a rural area: junior high schools in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
