This evaluation focuses on the junior curriculum (Grades
7 and 8) at Exeter High School, and seeks to identify weaknesses
and inadequacies in the existing programme and in the links with
the curricula in Grade 6 and Grade 9, and to devise solutions
to overcome any identified shortcomings.
The evaluation was undertaken in response to growing
concern among staff, students and parents, who saw the non — basic
Grade 8 curriculum in particular as inflexible and unresponsive
to changing needs and circumstances.
A Curriculum Review Committee was set up to conduct
the evaluation and, with unanimous staff support, was keen to
see the results of the evaluation translated into changes that
would improve the junior curriculum, and therefore the over all
quality of education provided at Exeter High School.
In response to time constraints, and eager to see changes
implemented in time for the 1988 school year, the evaluation was
conducted in two parts; firstly the evaluation of the Grade 8
curriculum and secondly, the evaluation of the Grade 6 — 7 curriculum
Substantial changes have been made to the Grade 8 non—basic
subject curiculum which seek to rectify the problems identified.
This 'new' curriculum became operational at the start of 1988.
