This project evaluated the effects of Juniper Hills High School's program management system on the student's academic performance and on student's ability to problem solve with Positive Peer Culture and scientific method. Between January 2014 and October 2014, seven groups surveyed their peers on two areas of importance: their academic success and their successes in program. During Term 3 in the school year 2014-2015, eleven students participated in scientific journaling focusing on their ability to problem solve different science issues. This project generated evidence that students have an increased understanding of the scientific method when used with Positive Peer Culture and that Positive Peer Culture plays a major factor when students are achieving or failing in the academic classroom.
