Use the following information for the question(s) that follow. 

Ariel Nagales, a 7th grader, is an immigrant from the Dominican Republic. He struggles with English, but it is improving rapidly. He says that his family practices speaking English at the dinner table each evening. His father makes $44,000 a year as a foreman on one of the shifts at a local oil refinery. Ariel's mother stays at home, since he has a sister in the second grade and a brother in kindergarten, and she has to pick Ariel up from soccer practice each evening. He is a star on the junior high team. 
Latisha Brown, an African American student and also a 7th grader, lives with her single mother who has a full-time job working for a maid service. Latisha helps with cooking and housekeeping at home, since her mother is usually exhausted when she comes home, and Latisha has a younger brother and two younger sisters. She usually finishes the housework by 8 p.m., and she then finishes her homework while her mother helps her brother and sisters with their school assignments. "It's sometimes hard," Latisha laments, "because I'm tired on the days that I have choir practice, but it's worth it. I have a solo part in the next concert." 
Henry Martinez, comes to your class a month after school began. You check Henry's background and you find that his parents were divorced shortly after they had immigrated to this country from the Philippines. Henry lives with his mother who is transferred regularly in her job as a government liaison for minority federal programs. Henry has attended four different schools in the last three years. In a letter to the school, Mrs. Martinez expressed concern over the frequent moves, but said she couldn't afford to give up her forty thousand dollar a year job. She also proudly pointed out that Henry was an all-star on his youth soccer team at the last school he attended. Henry spoke of her and his two younger sisters often, frequently citing examples of some of the fun things they did together on the weekends and the interesting stories his mother read to them in the evenings. 
Calvin Henry, another African American 7th grader, lives in Brentwood, a local inner-city area. Calvin has been living with his grandmother, an energetic 65-year-old, since his parents' divorce four years ago. They struggle to make ends meet, since his grandmother's only source of income is social security. Calvin is both athletic and musical, and his grandmother continually encourages him to begin playing a musical instrument and go out for the junior high track team. "You would be a star," she smiles. Calvin shrugs and says maybe when he gets into high school. Right now he would rather hang out with his friends after school. 

If the students fit patterns identified by research, the student who has the greatest likelihood of being placed at risk is:
◦ Ariel.
◦ Latisha.
◦ Henry.
◦ Calvin.
