Counselor’s Corner: School Climate Check

Your Perception of Our School Climate Matters to Us!

As we begin the academic year, it is important to reflect upon our campus culture and what we can do every day to help create a positive school climate. Think about how teachers, staff, students, and parents contribute to generating a friendly, welcoming, and inclusive environment at Fairmont, and take the short quiz below. As you answer these questions, assess your perception of our school climate. What are your impressions of how we interact with and treat each other at school? Ask your child these questions and see how they differ from your perception. Then, think about what you can do to improve the culture and climate here at school. What can the faculty do? Administrators? Students?
