In St. Lucia, anecdotal evidence based on correspondence with teachers and principals suggests a lack of preparedness on the part of students from lower performing schools in St. Lucia to smoothly and successfully transition from high school into adult life. Consequently, this study explored the transition skill levels of St. Lucian high school seniors based on the perception of teachers, parents and students themselves and whether there were differences based on student Gender, performance on the Minimum Standard Examination (MSE) and Parental Level of Education (PLE) across these three groups.
