Abstract: This study investigated factors affecting performance of learners in Physics and Biology subjects in Community Day Secondary Schools. Using a mixed method design, samples were chosen purposefully in four Community Day Secondary Schools. The schools identified were schools that underperformed in the science subjects in the year 2014.Senior science teachers and Senior science learners participated in this study. The data were collected by means of two closed-ended questionnaires. One of the questionnaires was designed for completion by the teachers (3) and one by the learners (98). In addition, structured interviews were conducted with eight teachers and eight learners. The data were analyzed using SPSS and manual analysis .The data were recorded and summarized by means of descriptive statistics and was interpreted using literature review .The results of this study indicate that factors that contribute to poor performance are, namely a change in the curriculum, the time allocated for each science topic, the teachers’ teaching load, resources, the educators’ lack of specialized content knowledge, the medium of instruction, the involvement of the parents, poverty, and motivation. From these results recommendations for policy were suggested
Keywords: parental involvement, poor performance, science, specialized content, medium of instruction
