The authors examined the effects of four representative boarding schools on 132 Alaskan Eskimo adolescents during their freshman & sophomore years. Forty-nine percent of the freshmen developed school-related social & emotional disturbances; 25% of these problems were judged serious. High levels of emotional disturbance were also found during the students’ sophomore year. The findings and their implications are discussed. (9 refs)
