School Climate

School Climate refers to the many aspects of students’ educational experience that influence their social, emotional, and academic development. The climate of a school can impact student engagement in school activities; relationships with other students, staff, family, and community; and academic performance. A positive social and emotional school climate is conducive to effective teaching and learning. Such climates promote health, growth, and development by providing a safe and supportive learning environment.

Looking at School Climate data

Surveying students, staff and the community on a regular basis will provide an overall picture of the school climate and student engagement.  With this information, a school community can address the areas of concern identified in the survey data.  With ongoing surveys, the school community can assess if implementations are effective.
