Summary

The Pilot School described in this document is a joint venture of the Cambridge public schools and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, to experiment with decentralized alternatives to the usual pattern of secondary education. The first section is a chronology of the school's history and operations during the first year; the second describes evaluation procedures used at the end of the year, their purposes, design, and a critique of the methods; the third presents the results of 60 interviews and 20 written commentaries by the school staff, students, parents and teachers in the two regular Cambridge high schools, and discusses goals for the school held by different groups, likes and dislikes about the school, effects of the school on students, critical incidents recollected by the staff, and suggestions for the future; the fourth includes additional data on achievement test scores, attendance, drop-outs, and rating scale responses; and the fifth summarizes the data, discussing agreed-upon strengths and weaknesses of the school, and divergences and disagreements. The final section offers some speculative interpretations of the opinions expressed about the school and offers some suggestions for future development. (MBM)
