This study examines the academic achievement of ESL [English as a second language] high school students in one urban school board. In addition to accessing computer records for the years 1991-1996, the authors conducted in-depth, semi-structured interviews with 15 former ESL students. They also interviewed five ESL teachers and six mainstream classroom teachers to discover their views of the integration of ESL students in the school system. At least 10 of the ESL students were pushed out of school by the provincially mandated age cap. Another 36 appeared to have dropped out of school. Thus nearly 46 of high school ESL students did not complete their studies within the K-12 system, compared to a 70 completion rate for all students in Alberta. The implications for high school teachers and administrators include eliminating the age cap; improving integration of ESL students in mainstream content classrooms; and implementing better orientation for the students to ESL classrooms and procedures.
