Kainai High School Student Success Program: Evaluating ‘The Quarter System’
The Quarter System is an educational structure that seeks to improve overall student achievement by increasing the total number of credits attained per year. Research shows that an inability to attain sufficient high school credits has prevented many First Nations and Métis youth from achieving success in secondary schools. Therefore, implementing The Quarter System in schools with high populations of First Nations of Métis students will improve student success. Kainai High School in Southern Alberta is utilizing the Quarter System to improve educational outcomes for its students. This review provides an in-depth analysis of qualitative and quantitative data demonstrating a strong correlation between The Quarter System and the total number of credits First Nations youth have attained in the Kainai community. Issues covered include possible long-term impacts and next steps to ensure further success for this community and its youth.
