Summary
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between high school size and reported student self-esteem and academic achievement in Missouri public high schools. A secondary purpose was to compare selected Missouri public high schools on 16 school district characteristics to determine trends which may help explain their displayed scores for student self-esteem and academic achievement. This study provides a baseline analysis of the variables and their relationships. To fulfill the purposes of this study, analysis was conducted in two stages. Stage One of the study consisted of regression analysis on the relationship between school size and the dependent variables of student self-esteem and academic achievement. Regression analysis revealed a significant and positive relationship between school size and student self-esteem. Regression analysis also revealed a significant and negative relationship between school size and student academic achievement. This analysis allowed the identification of schools which had displayed scores at least 1.5 standard deviations above or below the mean for each of the dependent variables. Stage Two of this study consisted of a comparison of the identified schools on 16 school district characteristics to determine trends which would help explain their displayed scores on the dependent variables. The comparison analysis of Stage Two was conducted in four groups: Schools with high reported student self-esteem, Schools with low reported student self-esteem, Schools with high displayed student academic achievement, and Schools with low displayed student academic achievement. Comparisons were also made between schools in each group based on size. Schools were divided into large schools (those with an average grade level of 100 students or more) and small schools (those with an average grade level enrollment of less than 100 students). Group trends were established and differences between school sizes were identified. Implications of the study and avenues for future research were discussed
