THE IMPACT OF SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE STUDENTS

INTRODUCTION

The education is a primary key that lead the students to success so thus the school environment

has a major impact on it. It remains an important area that should be studied and well managed to

enhance student’s academic performance. Students has their own differences when it comes to

performing activities, it is not just about the surroundings that matter but also the impact of people

around it. Every individual has different social experiences which affect them wholly as distinct persons.

Each one of the students has a different story to tell which develops them as individual. Some are affected

by social or school environment inspiringly some are discouraged and some are motivated.

The school environment which includes the classrooms, libraries, teaching methods and school

management are the variables that affect student’s performance. If classrooms have poor lighting, too

much noise and broken fans which results into an inconsistent temperature makes teaching and learning

difficult. Facilities like libraries that have poor maintenance and ineffective ventilation systems can lead

into ailment among the students as well as the others who uses it. Professors have different methods on

teaching and some of the students doesn’t seem to adopt or like it so it will make their studies difficult.

The quality of education not only depends on the teachers as reflected in the performance of their duties,

but also in the effective coordination of the school environment. They are the one who lead the student’s

academic performance into something extra ordinary that the student amazed themselves by doing or

achieving it. The students don’t know everything so by the help of the environment revolving around them

they gave ideas and perspective so they have the knowledge and they are capable of answering the things

that are questionable. It is believed that a well capable school will give expected outcomes of education

that will facilitate effective teaching, learning process and academic performance. The student’s learning

could be enhanced depends on the location within the school compound, the structure of the classroom,

the availability of the facilities and accessories because the safe and orderly classroom environment,
school facilities were related to student’s performance at school, and that a comfortable and caring

environment among other treatments helped to contribute to the student’s performance.

The characteristics of the school have a variety of effects of teachers, students and the learning

process. These factors can adversely affect student’s behavior and lead to higher levels of frustrations

among teachers, and poor learning attitude among students. Beyond the effects that poor facilities have

on student’s ability to learn, the combination of poor facilities, which create an uncomfortable and

uninviting workplace for teachers, combined with frustrating behavior by the students including poor

concentration and hyperactivity creates a stressful set of working conditions for teachers. Because stress

and job dissatisfaction are common precursors to lowered teacher enthusiasm. So it is possible that the

characteristics of school facilities have an effect upon the performance of the students.

“The influence of the learning environment on student success. This is significant because teacher

turnover has been linked to increased costs and poor student achievement. Schools that provide better

environments, in other could potentially reach higher levels of success while spending less money.”

“Philips (1992) noted that lighting is one of the most important physical characteristics of classroom. He

further stated that visual environment can affect the capability of students to perceive visual stimuli and

also affect their mental attitude. Consequently, their academic performance is affected negatively.”
