This report is an evaluation of a Title VII Bilingual Program conducted at the Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, New York, in 1979-1980. This bilingual program provided instruction for Greek, Spanish, and Arabic speaking students. The ethnic and economic composition of the neighborhood and of the school population are discussed, and the program's objectives, funding sources, and uses of those funds are examined. The program is analyzed in the following areas: (1) class organization; (2) curriculum and materials development; (3) staff development; (4) parental and community involvement; (5) supportive services; and (6) affective domain. Tables are presented measuring each student ethnic group's achievement level in social studies, science, mathematics, and English and native language development.
