This study's methodology consisted of gathering and analyzing qualitative data. These data derived from photographic activity and interviews with students attending a continuation high school, a student inquiry group discussion with students attending a comprehensive high school in the same district, and a review of archival documents from the continuation high school. Perceptions of social capital were examined in terms of barriers and supports. Perceptions were compared between the continuation high school students and the comprehensive high school students. Common supports and barriers identified through the analysis of the qualitative data included: administration, caring relationships, computer lab, counselor, credits to graduate information, electives, family, friends, nutrition, office staff, personal choices, physical education, rewards/incentives, teachers, time, physical campus, and visual representations.
