Guaranteeing success to all students appears to be against educational practices developed in most Spanish educational centres. The present paper gathers the conclusions of a research undertaken following “case study” method. Its main aim is identifying the differentiating elements which increase —in a considerable manner— the results and expectations of students at risk of educational exclusion in Secondary Education; aspects which may serve as reflection for those who manage and develop educational policies in Spain on the necessity of introducing certain modifications which promote and guarantee quality education for all students.
