What is school climate?
- School climate refers to the quality of school life as it relates to norms and values, interpersonal relations and social interactions, and organizational processes and structures.
- School climate sets the tone for all the learning and teaching done in the school environment, and is predictive of students’ ability to learn and develop in healthy ways.
- All schools, like all people, have a range of strengths and weaknesses, as well as a distinctive vision for the kind of school they aspire to be.

Relative Strengths and Weaknesses
This chart shows scale scores in relative terms for each school group. It also displays the order in which each group rates the dimensions in comparison with the other two groups. This provides a sense of the way those in different groups perceive the school’s relative strengths and weaknesses.
Overall, a majority of the dimensions fell in the positive range. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, building teams will plan how to address two key areas for improvement: sense of social/emotional security and social media. Action steps will be developed and implemented as part of the district’s Comprehensive Plan.
