This research evaluates the Performance Management System (PMS) program in Francistown Junior Secondary Schools in relation to students’ performance. Two Likert type questionnaires were used; one for teachers and the other for students. The questionnaires were face and content validated. The reliability of 0.9351 for teachers and 0.5096 for students were determined using the Alpha reliability method. The results show that the students who are expected to be the end beneficiaries of the initiative did not benefit much due to shortage of facilities as well as learning materials. The r value of 0.479 showed that there is a weak relationship between teachers’ performance and the implementation of PMS. The F change in all cases was found to be a significant indication that the more management and leadership variables are put in place, and the more qualified teachers are, the more students benefited. The study recommends that the students as the ultimate beneficiaries of PMS, need to be introduced to the program.
