Inside Hillview High School: A Case Study

Publication Date: 
April 2007

Inside Hillview High School by Hyacinth Evans is an ethnographic case study of a Grade Nine class in an urban Jamaican upgraded high school. The primary focus of the study is to understand the factors that influence the students’ learning and academic achievement. Evans’ interest in this subject stems from her concerns about poor academic outcomes for Jamaican secondary schools, relative to other Caribbean countries, as well as from her concerns about differences in achievement levels between traditional high schools and upgraded high schools in Jamaica.
