Their Voices: What High School Students are Saying about School Related Anxiety

Researchers: Dr. Jenn de Lugt and Jenn Chan

The purpose of the study is to further our understanding of anxiety as experienced by high school students, and how these anxieties can be mitigated.
Through 10 weekly confidential journal entries, and five focus groups, we asked students from grades 9, 10 and 11 what their greatest school-related anxieties were and to make suggestions for their teachers to help reduce these anxieties.
