Abstract

The purpose of this study is to evaluate how the high school-college partnership reflects on \u201csenioritis\u201d and students STEM curiosity. The term \u201csenioritis\u201d described in this paper refers to high school senior students who have completed most of their graduation requirement courses in the third year of studies. During the fourth year of high school, students may only need two or three credits for graduate which inherently causes the students to lose motivation. This then results in the aforementioned senioritis. Least credit requirements make senior students a senioritis and have a lack of motivation in the fourth year of high school. This study aims to illustrate how K-16 a model high school-college partnership with local colleges builds a scientific community that urban student can benefit from.
