Environmental Influence On Students’ Academic Performance In Secondary School


Environment, Academic Performance, School Location


The school environment, which includes the classroom, school location, school facility, school climate and technology, etc, is
a variable that affects students’ academic performance. Hence the school environment remains an important area that should
be studied and well managed to enhance students’ academic performance. The extent to which students’ learning could be
enhanced depends on their location within the school compound, the structure of their classroom, availability of instructional
facilities and accessories. It is believed that a well planned school will gear up expected outcome of education that will
facilitate good social, political and economic emancipation, effective teaching learning process and academic performance of
the students.
