Abstract
This research explored the educational experiences and perceptions of African American male secondary school students attending a diverse urban high school in the Northeast.  Case study design was used and data were collected through focus groups, in-depth participant interviews, and observations of informal school environments. Analysis of the data suggested common themes related to identity, the social dimension and the academic dimension of school climate. The implications for practitioners are discussed.
