As pieces in (human) ecologies, when one thing changes, everything else does as well. Therefore, which of the following characteristics ensures that a School remains Good through the times ?

  1. According to me, best judgements of a good school are of students and their parents, who are most directly affected by particular school. Parents can best judge how well their children’s educational experience is coming along. Therefore, Parents should be actively involved in children’s education.

  2. In my opinion No: 2 & No: 18 hold the key to building a reputation as a GOOD SCHOOL. Our Society is a community of People and their Values. That maturity & Wisdom of society could be best gauged by how much it VALUES it’s EDUCATORS. Going beyond what can be taught, a teacher’s actions and behavior also significantly impact and influence the children they teach, particularly the younger ones. It is in this sense that we consider them “second parents” or “parents in school,” to whom we ENTRUST the education and nurturing of our children to become responsible and upright citizens.

    Also, In context to No: 2 – How can we build an education system that best develops the adults of tomorrow? Schools must cater to the needs of the fast-changing world of the 21st century. Consider the major changes in our society over the past 30 years and how they have affected the way we teach today. The world of 2025 will be very different again from that of 2018. Helping students to develop a framework in which they think about future challenges is critical. Enabling students to participate in events such as the Model United Nations programme, Entrepreneurship etc will help them develop new perspectives and useful skills.

  4. Education plays a key role in determining how you spend your adult life – a higher level of education means higher earnings, better health, and a longer life. By the same token, the long-term social and financial costs of educational failure are high. Those without the skills to participate socially and economically generate higher costs for health, income support, child welfare and social security systems. In my opinion I think all above mentioned follow ups are playing important role in according to specific situations that how schools remain good.

  8. According to me, point numbers 1,3,18 are much relevant. I find students as a tool to change the society… If we give them good moral values as well as social values, we can get rid of evils prevalent in our society…. Just because they are the pillars of our nation…. Giving values to each other is quite important…. Students follow their elders… If they find their teachers or parents don’t respect each other, they can never learn to respect others… 😌

  9. All above points are essential to maintain a reputation of a good school. I things values and good teachers are the keys for this. The values build the nation. Doesn’t matter that how big and how reputed the school is ! It only matters that what values teachers are giving them.
    Second important part of a reputed school is its teachers. Teachers are the nation builders and they are called as the guide of their students. They impart knowledge , ideas and bring best from their students.
    So values and teachers are the backbone of a good school.

  10. A school can remain good through the times by all the above mentioned points but according to me no.6 and no. 18 are highly reputed pounts.
    No.6-Failure is an important part of ones life. It keeps us stable and humble. School teaches how to accept the failure and how to handle success.
    No.18-parents, teachers and administrators are the agants of the schools. Without them real values can’t be imparted .so these are most important points by them school remain good.

  15. A school visibly and substantively improves the community it is embedded within.It adapts quickly to social changes. It also uses every resource, advantage, gift, and opportunity it has to grow students and tends to see more resources, advantages, gifts, and opportunities than lower-performing schools.A school has students who get along with and support one another towards a common goal.

  16. According to me, with authority comes responsibility so as schools are authorised to impart knowledge to children the responsibility also comes tangled with it to nurture and build the future nation builders. This should be done without biasness and a sense of belongingness for all the students of the institution. It must aim to empower every student to face every encumbrance he finds in his way not just academically but also in other facets of life. Being a school dynamic attitude ,far sightedness must be main agendas of schools in this era.

  18. A good school is like a healthy tree. As it grows, it sinks its roots deep into its native soil: it adapts to the surrounding climate and vegetation; its branches thicken for support and spread for maximum exposure to the sun: it makes its own food; it heals its own wounds; and, in its season, it puts forth fresh leaves, blossoms, and fruit.

  22. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. School life is not all about academics, games, friends and fun. In fact, it is also about learning to interact with other people ,being aware of the social issues /inequalities and learning to amend the deformities in our society. Goods school is a place where children learn enough worthwhile things to make a strong start in life where Foundation is laid that supports later learning, where children develop the desire to learn more. A good school is a full of students who know what’s worth understanding .A good school speak the language of children ,families and community it serves. A good School make certain that every single student and families feels welcome and understand on equal terms.

  23. School is a combination of a plethora of initiatives, souls ,full of zeal and innovative minds hence quality of a fine organisation can not be measured by considering single aspect, as far as my notion is concerned, the foremost quality a good school should have is the crystal goal to inculcate thoughts in young minds rather than focusing on contents only
    Apart from this solid measure, a solid connect with social changes , adaptability and value of each resource is the foundation of a great school

  35. A developing mind needs more than just academics for an overall development. Current generation schools are indeed catching up with the change and offer a an opportunities for children. According to me a good school can be where learning new things and techniques which ultimately help a teacher to teach in the best way possible is just something that a school should believe in. So, that makes faculty training one of the crucial features/qualities of a good school or next is today all schools encourage activity-based learning. But very few schools have strict measures to ensure that the students actually take part in it. Schools should make sure that the child is making his/her own project with 100% efforts. To really impart activity-based learning, the school, as well as parents, should encourage their children to always do things on their own.Teachers should encourage students to find their own interest and take part in some or the other activity. A class teacher knows which student is introvert and shy and how to point those students in the right direction. Just having a lot of extra-curricular activities is not enough, pushing students to take part makes the difference.

  38. Greetings for the day! A school is an inseparable and most significant part of a society. To my mind a school must prepare human beings not mechanized robots. The learners must be instilled with values not just facts and figures. A school should never be biased on the basis of colour, caste. creed. religion etc., because this is the pious place where everyone must learn to cooperate and to coordinate. The above given points are quite valid and logical.

  43. There are five common attributes that make up an effective school.
    1. Leadership
    The first attribute is quality leadership. Students perform better when the principal and school board members provide strong leadership. Effective leaders are visible, can successfully convey the school’s goals and visions, collaborate with teachers to enhance their skills, and are involved in the discovery of and solutions to problems.
    2. High Expectations
    High expectations of students have repeatedly been shown to have a positive impact on student performance. Students are somewhat dependent on the expectations placed on them during this period of their lives, as they are still shaping their personal sense of ability and esteem.
    3. Ongoing Evaluation
    The third attribute of a successful school is the ongoing screening of student performance and development. Schools should use assessment data to compare their students with others from across the country.
    4. Goals and Direction
    The fourth attribute of a successful school is the existence of goals and direction, According to research, the successful school principal actively constructs goals and then effectively communicates them to appropriate individuals (e.g., students, teachers, and the community at large).
    5. Secure and Organized
    The fifth and final attribute of a successful school is the extent to which the school is secure and organized. For maximum learning to occur, students need to feel secure. Respect is a quality that is promoted and is a fundamental aspect of an effective and safe school. Successful schools also have a number of trained staff and programs, such as social workers, who work with difficult or troubled students before situations get out of hand.
    In our school we have all these attributes ,so our school is a good school.
