A sample of 506 Head Teachers of Public schools and 146 Principals of Punjab Education Foundation (PEF) partner schools was drawn through multi stage random sampling technique. A self developed rating scale and checklist for gauging physical facilities (CLPF) was used as an instrument. The PEC annual results of 8th grade Public and PEF partner schools were taken as their achievement scores. The descriptives as well as inferential statistics i.e. t-test, Chi Square and Regression were computed. The predominant findings show that PEF partner schools perform better than Public schools in maximum measures of organizational structure except a few which have been picked up for this study. The performance of Public schools is better regarding students achievement as compared to PEF partner schools. The results of the study show that Public schools provided better physical facilities as compared to PEF partner schools. It could be concluded that organizational structure and physical facilities of both type of schools have direct bearing on students‟ achievement.
