In order to investigate how an integration centered ideology of a planned community influenced interracial contact among adolescents in its high schools, this study examined whether the racial composition of sports teams and extracurricular groups in a high school located in a planned community were more diverse than those in a high school located in an unplanned community. Multiple yearbooks were used to investigate if patterns changed over time. The high school located in the planned community revealed higher rates of minority representation among these groups in 11 of 16 ratio comparisons. As the minority enrollment in the schools increased over time, rates of minority representation among groups increased in the high school located in the planned community and decreased in the high school located in the unplanned community. Living in a planned community may have a positive effect on interracial mixing among teams and organizations within a high school
