The purpose of this study was to determine if building positive relationships and implementing restorative practices would increase academic success in African American males. The measurement tool used was quarterly assessment scores for Language Arts. This study used a quasi-experimental design to determine if restorative practices increased academic achievement. The researcher analyzed the data in a t chart. According to the results of the study, the difference of the major was lower in school year 19-20 than 18-19, but the difference was not significant. Therefore, this study shows that the implementation of restorative practices and building positive relationships does not significantly increase student achievement. Research in this area should continue because these test results had many threats to the validity and there is very little information available about how restorative practices and positive relationships impact student learning.
