School culture, organizational culture, Christian school culture
According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, there are close to 100,000 public schools and over 33,000 private schools in the United States. Each of these schools have different mission statements, pedagogies, philosophies and purposes along with different types of students. These schools are led by a variety of leaders with different levels of education and leadership styles. Is there a common theme between the schools that are most successful at providing a holistic education for their students and creating a rewarding environment in which the respective faculties serve their students? What is the impact of school culture upon the learning and social outcomes along with the work environment? A great deal of literature deals with the topic of both organizational culture as well as school culture. The research demonstrates a strong relationship between a school’s culture and its outcomes. Those schools who have a positive culture tend to have positive outcomes and those schools with negative cultures are more likely to have negative outcomes among its students and staff.
