SANCHEZ-OLAVARRIA, César. School Trajectories at Higher Secondary Level: the Case of a Public Institution. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.28, pp.66-81. ISSN 2007-2872.

This research report seeks to characterize the school trajectory of 513 students enrolled in a public institution at higher secondary level located in Tlaxcala, Mexico, based on the analysis of the family structure, its efficiency and the average. Four types of school trajectories were found: optimal, acceptable, lagging behind and at risk. Most students were in acceptable and optimal school trajectories. The lagging and at-risk trajectories concern mainly women. The knowledge of the problems faced by students during their school journey allows teachers and principals to establish intervention strategies for accreditation and classroom work.

Keywords : school trajectories; high school; high school students; family structure; efficiency; Mexico.
