Spring Grove Area SD (York Co.)
The Peer Mentoring Club at Spring Grove Area High School was featured in the April 2011 issue of Educational Leadership. The article, titled: Rallying Behind At-Risk Freshmen,” describes the efforts of the Peer Mentoring Club to mentor and support at-risk freshmen students by meeting individually with them during shared free periods. The at-risk freshmen in 2010-11 achieved success at a 79% (19/24 students) rate, with success defined as achieving the five credits necessary to reach sophomore status. This was a major increase on two years prior without interventions, when students earned success at a 42% and 38% rate.
