Schools’ efforts to implement programs and strategies designed to help all students achieve high academic standards are most effective if they include multiple components. One important component is the ability to mitigate potentially negative effects of students’ experiences outside the school setting by creating and maintaining within the school what we refer to as effective conditions for learning.
Measuring your school climate is the first step toward improving your school climate. School climate reflects the perceptions of the school’s stakeholders. These perceptions determine the tone or the emotional quality of the school environment, Perceptions are easier to change and measure than is culture. Schools with positive, healthy climates have been associated with positive learning outcomes
