The concept of school culture offers principals and other leaders a broader framework for understanding problems and relationships within the school. The definition of culture includes deep pattern of values, beliefs, and traditions that have been formed over the course of the school’s history. Researchers have found that healthy school cultures correlate strongly with increased student achievement and motivation, and with teacher productivity and satisfaction. A vision for creating a healthy school culture should be a collaborative activity among teachers, students, parents, staff, and the principal. The principal’s main role in changing school culture is to, work on developing shared visions of what the school should be, and team working.
