The student dropout rate at Kenwood High School in Baltimore County is unquestionably high, says English teacher Brenda DeGori."The most difficult time for a student is when they're entering the sixth and ninth grade," DeGori said. "It's a big transition moving from middle school to high school. They're still adolescents, but they're being thrown into a more mature situation."To help alleviate some of the problems associated with moving from middle to high school, Kenwood High teachers are piloting a program at the school aimed specifically at keeping ninth-grade students interested and enrolled in school.

What happens when you're in charge of a little city, a place with 1,400 teen-agers, 140 adults, a three-story brick building with 78 classrooms on 44 acres, where a loud bell rings every 50 minutes, hordes jam hallways, lockers slam, phones ring every second -- and suddenly everybody's gone?If you're E. Diane Goldian, principal of Kenwood High School in Essex, you get up at 4: 30 a.m., as usual. Instead of your usual skirt and jacket, you slip on a pair of cutoff denim shorts and a T-shirt that says "South Pacific," from a school musical.

Three days after a Kenwood High School junior left an anatomy class because she refused to dissect a cat, the Baltimore County school system let her return to the honors course yesterday and perform simulated dissections on a computer. "I'm relieved," Jennifer Watson, 16, of Essex said after learning the school system had purchased a CD-ROM so she can perform virtual dissections during her fifth-period class, rather than taking a standard-level class she didn't want. Watson said the turnabout will help many other classmates interested in learning physiology without cutting up dead animals.
