CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Schools are social institutions that provide education to the young adulthood in

shaping them to become productive, noble, and enlightened citizens. In every country,

Education is the main concern. Since the beginning, the school environment has a

major part in every student‘s life. It has a powerful influence on learning and children‘s

insights on how they see themselves as learners of their school.

How students see their school surroundings affect their own person and daily

life. Whether they are learning a lot or being influenced by others on becoming a good

or bad person. Some students may see their school as their second home and some

may see it as their place of escape or a horrid place. Students who see their school as a

horrid place are not interested on studying theories but they go to school because of

maybe the camaraderie they get from others.

Students need secured, healthy and encouraging environment in which to

develop and learn. During the school year, Students can spend 6 to 8 hours at

the school where the environment plays a significant/critical part in child

improvement. More of the time is spent in the school yard or travelling to and from

school. This condition involves cautious preparation and designing to enhance

familiarities that upkeep education, health and care. Thus, the school environment

is vital in shaping and reshaping academic ability. However, compassionate and

encouraging school environment supplemented with ample learning facilities, and


2

friendly climate makes students more relaxed and more focused on their academic

events that resulted in great academic performance.

After the family, school is the major basic socialization establishment for the

child. Apart from the parents, it‘s the learner‘s teacher who is efficiently in the front

seat in respects to his/her character progress and both educational and social

execution. The understanding of present teaching in our day places the obligation and

accountability of being operative in not just the child‘s logical improvement but also

personality growth merely on the shoulders of the teacher. Through assessing how

students perceive their learning environment, changes can be implemented with

guidance. Students‘ learning experiences are influenced by positive learners‘

perceptions of their educational environment in terms of how, why and what students

learn (Bakhshi, 2015).

Quality education has got no generally acknowledged explanation on the other

hand The Oxford Advanced Learner‘s Dictionary, (2010), explains education as the act

or practice of conveying or obtaining precise information or abilities, as for a career and

quality as pertaining to character with admiration to excellence, or status of brilliance.

The arrangement of these words nevertheless may mean unlike things depending on

the perception of the one person to another. Likewise, The Oxford Advanced Learner‘s

Dictionary, (2010), states quality education as providing leaners with proficiency and

familiarity that would support, develop internally and benefit them in future, being

capable to utilize the skills they learnt in the days to day lives to strengthen themselves

even after graduation.

An appropriate and suitable environment is crucial for a productive learning

of the child. The promising school environment offers the required enhancement for

learning practices. The children occupy most of their time in school, and this school

environment is exercising stimulus on execution through curricular, training system and

rapport (Lawrence, 2012). Education supports the principles of efficiency by allowing

individuals to explore the imaginative capacities in them and apply the same progress of

current ability and method of executing particular tasks, thereby increasing the

efficiency of their personal societal efforts (Orji, 2012). Education is one of the

significant investments for the majority of nations, and one of the biggest executive

groups are the teachers (Harris et al., 2013). School facilities serve as settings of

learning for children and are shown beyond doubt to have an essential effect on

education outcomes mainly in developing countries (Glewwe et al., 2011).

Right way of planning a classroom environment plays an important part in

making an encouraging environment for educational procedure and builds up an ideal

environment and prompting to learning. The learners' scholastic achievements are

being influenced by the classrooms' physical setting altogether. Classrooms' physical

facilities guarantee effective and productive educational procedures. Possible and

fruitful educational procedures are inoperable without these facilities. Learners gain

more understanding from their educator in well-handled and encouraged classrooms

and accordingly they demonstrate splendid performance. On the contrary, if learners

sense something painful in their classroom then they will disregard to obtain much

knowledge from their educators (Suleman and Hussain, 2014).


4

According to the article of The American Journal of Innovative Research and

Applied Sciences, Volume 1, No. 6 (2015), the learning and growth of the students are

widely influenced the by school environment has, involving an important aspect of their

social, emotional and moral development. When students find their school

environment encouraging and understanding, the probability of getting involved in

substance abuse, violence and other problem behavior is low. The research

specified that the schools that are supportive foster these positive results by

endorsing students‘ sense of connectedness, belongingness or community. These

terms are used interchangeably here to refer to students‘ sense of being in a close,

respectful relationship with peers and adult at school. As a result, building in a school

community is a manner of promoting academic success. Students who experience

their school as a caring community become more motivated, ambiguous and

engage in their learning. In particular, students‘ active connection with teachers and

their perceptions that teachers care about them are what stimulate their effort and

engagement.

The students' perceptions about themselves within the school environment play a

key role in their level of academic achievement. According to Fraser (2012), learning

environments in a large number of countries including United States, Australia, Canada,

Israel and India has found that students‘ perceptions of their learning environment is a

strong predictor of learning outcome variance beyond that of other factors including

school entry characteristics and ability. According to Hopson et al., (2014), social

processes within the school influence academic outcomes. The National School Climate
5

Council emphasizes that school climate refers to the quality and character of school life.

It is based on patterns of students‘, parents‘ and school personnel‘s experience of

school life and reflects norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, teaching and

learning practices, and organizational structures (Cohen & Geier, 2010).

School environment therefore, comprises all the components of the school

system that contributes positively or negatively towards effective teaching and learning

(Songu, 2016). A good school environment, therefore, refers to all improved school

conditions, such as availability of the right functional and usable infrastructures,

availability of the right quality and quantity of teaching materials and workforce,

standard class-size, proper location, good student teacher relationship and improved

methodologies which combined to encourage teachers and students for effective

teaching and learning (Songu, 2016). In addition, Usaini and Abubaker (2015) asserts

that a supportive and favourable school environment enriched with enough learning

facilities, and favourable climate makes students more comfortable, more concentrated

on their academic activities that resulted in high academic performance and as such a

proper and adequate environment is very much necessary for a fruitful learning of the

child.

According to the research conducted by Gorgonio (2017), schools whether

private or public are beset with challenges. Both public and private schools in the

Philippines are experiencing problems with enrollment whether overpopulation in the

public institutions or significant drop in the private institutions. It is with the latter

concern that we focus. Socio-economic factors may be the obvious reason as some
6

school administrators may surmised but there are other factors in the attrition of some

private schools. Added to the challenge is the implementation of the K to 12 education

program which is set to be implemented this school year. Standards and other

requisites have to be attained including the need to improve the school climate to

complement and support the effective implementation of the K-to-12 education. The

research also said that academic success is highly related with school climate. In the

effective school climate, stakeholders of school collaborate and work together to realize

its vision and mission in producing quality graduates with 21st century skills.

According to Lizzio (2010), students are being influenced by the perceptions of

improper analysis and burdens of work regarding the exterior and insights of good

teaching towards in depth understanding. The perceptions of students about their

present environment for learning were stronger predictors of learning results at

university than previous achievement at schools. To guide more impeccable analysis of

the perceptions of students, protocols were suggested. The accomplishment of this

concern is only favorable through the educator‘s being skillful to develop healthy

character morals themselves as well as providing proficiency in their connections with

learners so as to let them to grow their character freely (Can, 2011; Inelmen, 2011).

A 2018 survey from Faculty of Medicine, University of Gezira, Sudan showed that

61 percent of the students have positive perceptions on their school environment. This

implies that about 39 percent of the students have an opposed perception on their

school environment. In the same case, a grade 11 student from Mystical Rose School of
7

Caloocan Inc. have said on how he perceived the school environment of the said

institution:

―Sa ano… school environment ‗yung masasabi ko lang okay naman ‗yung mga…

okay naman ‗yung mga facilities kaso nga lang, ano… hindi siya gano‘n kalinis as a

private school.‖ [On the… on school environment, what I can say is that the… that the

facilities are okay but… they‘re not clean enough for a private school.]

―‘Yung mga teachers, ano… okay naman ‗yung pagtuturo nila kaso ‗yung iba

parang hindi nila gano‘n kasigurado kung tama ba ‗yung tinuturo nila kasi kadasalan

kasi ‗di ba, ano lang, fresh grad.‖ [The teachers… the way they teach seems good but

some are not confident enough about the topic they‘re teaching for the reason that

most of them are fresh grads.]

―‘Yung classroom naman namin, okay naman kasi may aircon kaso nga lang

hindi gano‘n kakomportable kasi isa lang siya tsaka ano… medyo mainit kasi madami

kami.‖ [Our classroom is okay because it has air conditioner but the fact that it‘s only

one makes us less comfortable, also… we‘re quite numerous.]

The statement above validates that factors such as poor indoor air quality, too

high or too low classroom temperature, and overcrowded classroom can lead for the

students to feel uncomfortable and also to their absenteeism that can be the cause of

the decrease of their learning (PennState, 2015). If this would continuously grow, some

of the students could possibly lose their interest and could split up their focus on their
8

academic matters since they are not satisfied and have problems towards their school

environment.

Thus, the researchers were prompted to explore The Perceptions of The

Selected Grade 11 Students on their School Environment as Learners in

Mystical Rose School of Caloocan, Inc. The purpose of this study is to obtain

student feedback from the selected grade 11 students on school environment that will

provide information to further improve the school conditions.


9

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The purpose of this exploratory research is to explore the perceptions of the

selected grade 11 students on their school environment as learners in Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc. for the current school year 2018-2019. At this stage in the

research, the perceptions are defined as the insights and the way students perceive

their school environment as a learner. School environment is defined by its physical

structures, classroom climate, student-teacher interactions and academic standing plays

a crucial role in the lives of the students.

Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions:

1. How may the participants describe their school environment in terms of

1.1 School facilities;


1.2 Student-teacher interactions; and
1.3 In terms of classroom climate?

2. How do the participants perceive their school as learners?

3. What implications may the findings offer for school concerned policy

development and management?

4. How may the findings be utilized in crafting a SWOT analysis to further

improve the current situation of the school environment?


10

ASSUMPTION

The purpose of this exploratory research is to explore the perceptions of the

selected grade 11 students on their school environment as learners in Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc. for the current school year 2018-2019. At this stage in the

research, the perceptions are defined as the insights and the way students perceive

their school environment as a learner. School environment is defined as

1. That the data gathered are valid and reliable

2. That the participants have varied descriptions of their school environment.

3. That the participants have varied perceptions on their school environment as

learners.

4. That there are implications offered by the findings for school concerned policy

development and management.

5. That the findings may be utilized in crafting a SWOT analysis.


11

SCOPE AND DELIMITATION

This study focused on the perceptions of selected Grade 11 students towards

their school environment as learners in Mystical Rose School of Caloocan Inc., which is

the locale of the study during Academic Year 2018-2019.

The researchers considered specific factors such as physical environment,

student-teacher interactions and academic standing. Physical Environment pertains to

school facilities, classroom climate and utility areas. Other factors such as gender

reference, noise and other personal issues concerning the students are excluded.

SELECTION OF CO-RESEARCHERS / SAMPLING TECHNIQUE

The researchers used Purposive Sampling Technique, a non-probability sampling

method is suitable for an Exploratory Research, because it is more accessible and

reasonable (Barratt et al., 2018). The researchers selected participants who are

currently in eleventh grade that would meet the needed target results. Moreover, the

researchers may tacitly select a ―representative‖ sample with specific characteristics

that are applicable to provide their needs and for the main objective of the researchers

in conducting the study.

Ten (10) selected grade 11 students who are currently studying at Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc., were utilized by this study throughout the Academic Year

2018-2019. The said co-researchers of this study were also the subject of the study and

were selected purposively.


12

LOCALE OF THE STUDY

The researchers chose to conduct this study at Mystical Rose School of

Caloocan, Inc. With a number of 983 grade 11 students, there are a lot of feedbacks

mostly about the high quality of education and learning environment from the students

there but rarely about how they perceive them in relation to themselves as students.

This made this school a good setting to conduct this study with.
13

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This research is conducted so that the researchers can share information about

the perceptions of the selected Grade 11 students on their school environment and the

people who think that this is not an important subject to be discussed of.

This research will benefit the following:

Students who are the main beneficiaries of this study as it may serve as an eye-

opener that aims to give knowledge and information to make sure that their opinions

and insights matter about their school environment.

Parents for them to be more observant of the school they‘re planning to enroll

their child to. This will make them monitor their children and ask more about their

activities as well to make sure that they are doing fine.

Faculty for them to know that students may need help with expressing good

goals, wishes, complaints, and labels that need to be changed into goals.

School Administrators will be more aware about howthe feedbacks of the

students can help the school improve what are needed and maintain its finest qualities

to make the students more comfortable and satisfied and to attract more enrollees in

the future.

Future Researchers to serves as a guide that they may find the findings of this

study informative and useful in regards to the perceptions of the students on their

school environment.

CHAPTER 2

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES

The researchers have analyzed and premeditate a number of literature and

studies which are the local and foreign that has related information about the study

being made, published concerns and article and reports in regards with this problem.

These support their study as a guide to fully understand the importance of the students‘

perceptions on their school environment. The literatures listed down below came from

books, magazines, newspapers/articles, scholarly websites, opinions, and other

references about the students‘ perceptions on their school environment which is mostly

found on the internet. The accumulated data ought to serve as the base and foundation

of the research topic.

LITERATURE

The framework of the study conducted by the researchers was corroborated by

this section that identifies the gathered data of the previous studies. It will serve as the

stand and foundation of the conducted research.

Local. It consist of findings from interconnected literary works particularly from

the internet that includes local boundaries about the students‘ perceptions on their

school environment in relation to themselves as learners, and its impact on their

academic status and behavior.

Philippine education is intensely regarded as a leader of nationwide improvement

and a main avenue for public and economic movement. It has experienced numerous

phases of development from the pre-Spanish period to the current. It is controlled by


17

three government administrations, specifically, the Department of Education, Culture,

and Sports (DECS), the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and the Technical

Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). The DECS administer both public

and private education in all levels, with its mission 'to offer eminence basic learning that

is rightfully available to all via the groundwork for lifetime education and provision for

the mutual good‘‘ (―The Quality of Philippine Education in the New Millennium‖, 2012).

A strategic encounter for the education region of the Philippines is the shortage

of government capitals. Administration and conservation of learning facilities need

substantial speculation, and thus the main emphasis can be given to school building

conditions that contribute to learning. This is mainly necessary for the recent learning

environment of the Philippines due to the current modification in their education

structure requiring fast school building developments (Okabe, 2013; Shahani, 2015).

According to Cerda (2013), the Aquino administration only spent about 2.2

percent of GNP to education, which is quite far from the desirable 6 percent of our GNP.

In order to improve the quality of education, the government should allocate more

funds to education to construct more classrooms, to hire and train competent teachers,

and to provide quality and updated textbooks. It is alarming that the number of

enrolling students continuously increases every year, but the government does not build

enough classrooms to accommodate them. According to the statement of Constantino

which was published on Sun.Star (2012), the country is short by 48,802 classrooms.

The classroom is the centerpiece of a school's education. Inside each room is a

teacher and pupils engaging with one another. The main purpose is to create a climate
18

suited for learning. Classroom management could be a challenging task to any teacher.

There are times when a teacher needs complete silence and there are times when a

teacher wants active participation from the students. The objective is always keeping

the attention of the pupils. Both lectures and activities can be held inside a classroom

(―Classrooms: An Environment for Learning‖, 2012).

Over the last decade, research from many different countries has demonstrated

the important role played by teachers in increasing students‘ learning and improving

their academic performance. Studies from countries as different as the US and

Indonesia have shown the enormous benefits that follow from having adequate and

effective teachers working in a country‘s schools. In Indonesia, a value-added analysis

of student learning outcomes found that the more teachers know, the greater the

improvements in the learning competencies of primary and junior secondary students.

In the US, better teaching in elementary and secondary schools has been shown to

increase students‘ college participation rates, raise their subsequent earnings, and

improve other long-term outcomes. Providing teachers with good quality professional

development opportunities has been shown to be an effective way of increasing their

competencies and improving student learning outcomes in many different settings. A

series of systematic reviews have been undertaken recently to assess the impact

of different interventions on student learning outcomes in developing countries. One of

the most consistent findings from these reviews has been the positive and significant

impact that interventions to strengthen teaching practice, introduce innovative

instructional methods, and strengthen teachers‘ subject knowledge can have on student
19

learning. However, in many countries, such professional development opportunities

frequently fail to meet even minimum levels of quality and fall short of what teachers

want and need (World Bank Group, 2016).

Foreign. It holds the findings from literary works of authors that exceeds the

capability of local literature. Results from these literatures could help in addition to

strengthen the claims of the researchers.

Right way of planning a classroom environment plays an important part in

making an encouraging environment for educational procedure and builds up an ideal

environment and prompting to learning. The learners' scholastic achievements are

being influenced by the classrooms' physical setting altogether. Classrooms' physical

facilities guarantee effective and productive educational procedures. Possible and

fruitful educational procedures are inoperable without these facilities. Learners gain

more understanding from their educator in well-handled and encouraged classrooms

and accordingly they demonstrate splendid performance. On the contrary, if learners

sense something painful in their classroom then they will disregard to obtain much

knowledge from their educators (Suleman and Hussain, 2014).

The necessities of the students include problem solving skills, communication,

critical thinking, adaptability, and cooperation. Likewise, ―when our concentration is

exclusively on academic attainment outcomes, we can constantly bypass of what

matters the most – our students and their requirements to guarantee their success‖

(Preble & Gordon, 2011). The students ought to have some unique abilities which make

them qualified for the occupation which is possible only through eminence learning
20

(Pavel, 2012). Student success is actually a construct of a broad array of skills,

experiences and outcomes across a number of different domains, from social-emotional

learning and health, to creative, critical thinking and qualities of democratic citizenship.

All are central to student success at school and in their future lives as adults (Shanker

et al., 2014).

The efficiency of school research has been seeking for operation-variables to fill

up the gaps between mostly school features that are structural and students‘ academic

outcome since 1970s. Two concepts came to the fore: school climate and school culture

(Houtte et al., 2011). Both have similar characteristic, but climate is concerned with the

process and style of a school‘s organizational life rather than its content and substances

(Dernowska et al., 2014). Mazer et al., (2013) discovered that when students consider

their classroom exertion to be significant, have the chance to show their capability, and

trust their involvement is vital to the progression, they are inspired to connect with their

instructors for functional, relational, and participatory reasons. Students who are

absorbed and involved learn more. Also, the perception of the students‘ on learning and

class ambiance exercises an impact on their assessment of their skills and self-concept

(Stadler-Altmann, 2010).

School climate is inevitably influenced by the connections of people (children and

adults) in their learning environment. The perception of a person on the school

encounter is being molded by these connections and serves as the lens through which

each one regards all other behavior at school (Preble & Gordon, 2011). Friendly school

climate provides room for students to strive hard and improve their academic
21

achievement (Bichi et al., 2015). Gregory et al., (2013), recommended that ―enhancing

the student-teacher interactions‘ quality inside the classroom depends upon a concrete

understanding of the concept of productive teaching for adolescents‖. In addition, The

teachers of the students who regard them as their supporters have greater success

outcomes (Gehlbach et al., 2012).

Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya (2015), said that provided

eminence education carries about a magnificent future to individuals, civilization and

entire world at large. Alumnae who obtain quality expertise and learning from their

well-respected institutions are most likely to be employable. If not so the graduates

may be able to use what they have learnt to start up their own business for example a

graduate from an accountancy college may in the event that they do not find a job or if

they so choose, start up their own accountancy consultancy agency proposing

accounting services and also by being able to employ their skills and start their own

business, the graduates would be creating employment for other individuals in the

society thus also helping in diversifying the economy of that particular nation investing

in its private sector. Tertiary education also helps provide graduates with basics of

understanding about economic activities that occur worldwide. A nation that possesses

such people would be safe to be termed as a literate nation, a wise nation would in turn

be able to prevent and run anti economic actions such as corruption. Quality education

provided to the society inspires creativity and innovation, moreover improves the

nation‘s economy. Graduates and internship students do interact with the society to
22

share knowledge, help the nation in making the decisions and coming up with new

ideas of doing things better as stated by British Council, (2014).

Allen et al., (2013), who calculated a quantity of classroom environments‘

descriptions or excellence teaching being conversed in the informative and progressive

literatures listing components likely to be connected to the student learning. Allen also

said that Hamre and Pianta (2013) developed an evaluation method that systematizes

structures of student-teacher interactions into three main domains: emotional supports,

classroom organization, and instructional supports. The emotional connection makes

the students feel relaxed in front of the teacher and class, which is important to the

achievement or failure of the students. Classroom organization is the technique that

teachers actually position the classroom for education. Instructional supports are

essential to assist the teachers offer the finest approaches, provision which will help

them more to distinguish instruction and meet all the students‘ necessities and

encourage their commitment in the procedure of learning.

The school background idea exemplifies schools as vibrant systems that influence

a broad range of dimensions of student learning, including affective, social, behavioral

as well as academic domains (Crick, et al., 2013). The education‘s value captures the

main idea in all scholastic establishments as well as higher education in today‘s Ethiopa.

In spite of the lack of agreement over the thought of value, proper value assertion has

at this time turn out to be one of the dominant factors of improvement and strategy

devices to familiarize higher education establishments to the uprising anticipations from

both inernal and external investors all over the world (Nega, 2012).
23

Students likewise observe the terrible conditions in their classrooms and their

schools. Anyway when asked in more detail – for instance in the investigations of

Woolner et al., (2013) – instructors and students had the capacity to convey the school

structures and study halls they wanted. On the off chance that we considered better

conditions for educating and learning in our schools and homerooms, we would realize

that an attention on the developed condition and its conceivable outcomes would

bolster instructing and learning. The point of view of educators and students should be

seen and incorporated into the exploration questions. According to Weilin et al., (2013),

comfortable learning could escalate students' drive to study in the classroom.

Physical environment of the school is an important aspect as well in shaping

school climate. School buildings, as well as interior designs, transfer a hidden message

to students to determine indirectly what is valued and worth, and what is intolerable in

that place (Sikorski, 2013). In addition to the quality of physical setting of the school,

stress ―respectful teaching practices‖ which reflect attention to the needs and interests

of each student, a belief that learning results and academic success are achievable for

every child (Preble and Gordon, 2011).

According to the article of Bulletin of Education and Research, Vol. 40, No. 2

(2018), a classroom setting has two main components, namely, physical component

and human component. Physical component comprises all the physical objects present

in the classroom e.g. black board, furniture, lightings, projector, books, computers etc.,

whereas the human component comprises of individuals i.e., teachers and students in

the classroom. It generally involves the nature of interaction of teachers with students
24

and student-student as well. This pattern of interaction generates a particular

atmosphere which may be called as learning condition/situation/environment. The

classroom's physical structure is an evaluative variable in affecting students' self-esteem

and learning. Students' participation in the procedure of making their environment can

strengthen them, expand community and to have higher motivation (Philips, 2014).

The academic setting is consisted of different things i.e., learners, teachers, and

the physical environment (Lippman, 2010). One of the most essential components of

schools is positive climate for the purpose of teaching and learning to raise the type of

social, emotional, and academic education that are significant for involvement in (Preble

& Gordon, 2011). To yield the stand upon which people inside the school teach and

learn, it is vital to have secured, caring, and pleasant learning environment (Cohen and

Elias, 2010). Also, Schanzenbach (2014) noted that class size is an important

determinant of a variety of students‘ outcomes, ranging from test scores to broader life

outcomes.

Managing classroom becomes one of the vital conditions for the nature of

operative teaching in classroom which begins with proficient provision in lesson

planning that enable teachers to teach effectively and learners to learn effectively. This

is evidenced in the opinion of Omodan et al., (2016) that positive classroom climate and

safe environment enable student to thrive higher academically. This had earlier been

said by Ekundayo et al., (2010) that effective classroom management provide diverse

opportunities for students to socialize because it keeps them motivated, provide them

with appropriate instructional feedback and thereby minimize disruptive behaviors. To


25

have a certain positive classroom condition, it must have facilities that are well-

equipped. Classroom physical course of operation provides great learning to students

and promotes productive educational procedures. Surveillance of physical facilities may

be ensured since these are in improving the school's overall performance (Suleman &

Hussain, 2014).

Likewise, Khadijah and Samson (2013) discovered that majority of classrooms

didn't accomplish the necessities of students and teachers aside from not being

comfortable. A classroom environment that is uncomfortable leads to too much

problems in discipline and affect effective learning. As said by Sahin et al., (2011),

many studies were linked to classroom management and tangible environment in the

school, but mostly these studies focused on a single dimension only, like class size or

the tangible environment and academic achievement. Not a lot of studies conducted

considered elements like student involvement and learning comfort despite being

argued by Cavanagh (2012) that student involvement in learning is an essential

element to consider whilst assessing a learning environment and instructional design.

Tagliacollo et al., (2010) also emphasized the collaboration between execution

and room organization by declaring that: the learners‘ enthusiasm for education defines

along with learners‘ seat choice and school performance. Also, Mazer (2012) states

―Students who experience heightened emotional interest are pulled toward a content

area because they are energized, excited, and emotionally engaged by the material‖.

The public aspects include education environment which appears to confirm the stability
26

of relationship between education environment and students‘ intellectual as well as

sentimental results (Ashby et al., 2011).

As found out by research, changes in a local climate will affect

microenvironment, like plants, individuals, and infrastructures including the school

environment and can probably cause discomfort while in a classroom's learning process,

most importantly for students and teachers (Puteh et al., 2014). As sketched out by

Gislason (2011), there are numerous investigations on structure quality and scholarly

results, which center around indoor air quality, lighting, commotion and acoustics,

inhabitant thickness and warm solace.

A student‘s impression of the instructor's conduct impacts the relationship.

Understudies who feel their educator isn't strong towards them have less enthusiasm

for learning and are less occupied with the classroom (Kaufman and Sandilos, 2012).

According to Uya (2011), a teacher who has a deep understanding of the concept to be

taught is more likely to use unambiguous language; his/her presentation is likely to be

more coherent and he/she would offer clearer explanation than those with a weaker

background. He also asserted that the effectiveness of any educational system depends

to a large extent on the effectiveness of the communication system being adopted. And

that the teacher has the capability to change the attitude of another person if there is

trustworthiness, belief and validity of what he says. Also, only slight information is

known about how teachers and students deal with the school and classroom

environment for their teaching and learning (Stadler-Altmann, 2013).


27

As cited by Mazer (2013), "Interest is often triggered in the moment by certain

environmental factors (e.g., teacher behavior) and can be characterized from the

perspective of the cause (the conditions that induce interest) or from the standpoint of

the person who is interested." Mechanisms in education have a higher influence on the

educational experiences of a student than a caring relationship with his or her teacher

(Cummins & Corbis, 2017). The teacher-student interaction is an essential component

to the students in the framework of teaching, learning and evaluation (Douglas et al.,

2015). Fraser et al. (2010) described teachers who want to improve students‘ academic

achievement should show strong leadership behaviour and understand, and reduce the

uncertainty behaviour in the classroom. In fact, two-way connection amid students and

teachers play a significant part in student‘s academic attainment (Solmaz et al., 2013).

Chukwuka (2013) in his submission revealed that cooperative leadership

behavior has a great influence on teachers‘ productivity. An autocratic administration

could pose negative effects on teachers‘ achievement. The school culture such as,

belief, values, traditions, patterns of behavior, designates the organizational norms

perceived to be parts of school social milieu which will either directly or indirectly

influence teachers/studentsinteractions and teaching effectiveness of teachers.

Oluwadare & Julius (2011) also noted that a friendly teachers‘/students‘ environment

obviously will enhance social security and environmental safety, which is important in

the assessment of school climate.

Bossaert et al., (2011) defines academic achievement as student‘s success in

meeting short or long term goals in education in the big picture according to the
28

authors, academic achievement means completing high school or earning a college

degree. In addition, Tsavga (2011) said that the learning environment plays an

essential part in determining in what way students execute or reply to circumstances

and situations around them. This implies that no society is void of environmental

influences. The learning environment determines to a large extent how a student

behaves and interacts, that is to say that the environment in which we find ourselves

tend to mold our behavior so as to meet the demands of life whether negatively or

positively. The author opined that the desire for both qualitative and quantitative

education has multiplied the problem of providing an effective and conducive learning

environment for teaching and learning.

Indoor air quality is also a problem due to the fact that low air quality highly

causes absenteeism for students with asthma. There‘s also an indication that many

schools experience ―sick building syndrome‖ which impacts the absenteeism and

execution of all students. Therefore, viruses, bacteria, and allergens that contribute to

childhood disease are mostly found in schools that have low quality of ventilation

systems. Indoor pollutants are also released from office apparatus, flooring

paraphernalia, paint, adhesives, cleaning products, pesticides, and insects. Children

particularly in schools with poor ventilation systems can be affected by these

environmental hazards (PennState, 2015).

According to Muchacka and Solak (2015), writing about teacher proficiency, refer

to the idea of teacher collaboration, through which they understand the relationship

structure of teacher personality with a practical impact on diverse spheres of the


29

student as an individual, a member of the school community, and other social groups.

Therefore, it is important that the school acted efficiently and responsibly in educational

tasks, that teachers responsibly (in the spirit of the rights and duties) treated their

students, that school does not become a place with unpleasant experiences and

negative feelings, but the harmony place, the place of assistants presence, which

requires good and similar values. It is also important to create as many opportunities as

possible for everyone to participate in school life and school improvement as a valued

member of a school community. Belonging is also an important component of school

climate. As Preble and Gordon (2011) note: ―empowering students (and teachers) to

feel valued for their input into policy making, management, and improvement of the

school and the surrounding community raise commitment and motivation‖.

Nocuń et al., (2012) emphasize the importance of type of communication at

school. The authors point out, that school, as a formal and hierarchical organization,

favors asymmetric communication. In their opinion, asymmetric social interaction itself

carries the risk of dominant attitude on one side (e.g. teacher) and passive or even

aggressive attitude on the other (e.g. student), which has negative consequences for

effective communication. According to the authors, the partnership communication style

is the most effective one, but it is not easy to implement it into the place called school.

Its implementation requires education and practice plan for all school community

members. But it is important to make the effort to build the relationships among

students and adults in school based on effective communication. It is a big challenge

but also a big chance for school institution to become safer, friendlier and more
30

inspirational place (Nocuń & O. Nocuń, 2012). Also, Stoop (2011) who revealed that

productive teachers recognize student dissimilarities, build cooperative learning

relations, have strong communication with parents, offer response to students and use

approaches allowing students to take accountability for their own learning.

Astoundingly, research findings suggest that the physical environment can have

such an impact on students that it could affect a student‘s academic progress by as

much as 25%. Color, classroom organization, cleanliness, sufficient supplies, and bright

lights can enhance learning experience and boost student achievement. Alternatively,

crowded rooms and a high-density of students often results in lower student

achievement and a poorer student disposition. Research suggests that students need 2-

4 feet of personal space in order to feel satisfactorily crowded and get the most out of

their learning environment. In addition, students who get involved in the creation of

their environment (through artwork, configuration, or participation in the physical

dynamics of the classroom) experience a sense of empowerment and community that

can help increase their overall motivation (Warfield, 2016).

Education is one of the significant investments for the majority of nations, and

one of the biggest executive groups are the teachers (Harris et al., 2013). School

facilities serve as settings of learning for children and are shown beyond doubt to have

an essential effect on education outcomes mainly in developing countries (Glewwe et

al., 2011). The quality in Education has no single explanation and there is no general

agreement on what is the applicable approach to guarantee and accomplish quality in

advanced education. Quality can be defined in relations of brilliance, precision, worth


31

for money, capability to purpose (Brucaj, 2014). Quality in education is a multi-

dimensional concept with different components. According to some researchers the

definitions of quality are: Quality is fulfilling & exceeding customer‘s needs, Quality is

everyone‘s job and quality is continuous improvement. Quality is recognition and

reward. Quality is leadership, teamwork, measurement and systematic problem solving

(Flores-Molina et al., 2011).

The most influential weapon we can use to change the world and for self-

enlightenment is education. This is so because quality education equips one with

capability to interpret things rightly and applying the gathered information in real life

scenarios. Quality education entails the following aspects; learning resources,

technology, program enrolled, modules done, lecturing methodology, attachments,

qualifications, co-curricular activities, performance awards, students and lecturers

perspective in the institution operating management also their opinions and appraisal

toward education (Hammond, 2013).

Overtime research has examined the sustentation of the school facilities such as

classrooms, laboratories, libraries, workshops, assembly halls, toilets, clinics and how

their debilitation affect the students and have distinguished problems such as deficient

funding, inadequate facilities, low staff enthusiasm, poor surveillance of schools, often

changes in policies, environment etc. as major components that affect the students‘

performance (Matthew et al., 2013). The school environment is molded by designers

and as such how comfortable and conducive the environment is, directly leaves a

remark on the execution of its users (Chukwuemeka et al., 2013).


32

According to Zais (2011), school environment is defined by the bound to which

school settings raise student protection and student health, which may have subjects

such as the physical plant, the academic environment, physical and mental health

advocates and services that are obtainable, and the fairness and sufficiency of self-

control processes, as supported by connected research and an evaluation of validity.

Also, the involvement of students will increase their mastery in content knowledge and

further enhance student learning commitment. In fact, according to Ghorbani et al.

(2013) student learning commitment will inculcate discipline and a greater sense of

responsibility in them.

STUDIES

The correlated studies make known positive outcomes from related ideas and

expositions of authors having logical issues being undertaken relating to the perceptions

of students on their school environment as learners. Results to be lectured were used in

order to toughen the statements of the researchers.

Local Studies. It contains findings from previous studies of local authors in

addressing the perceptions of the students on their school environment as learners and

how it affects them.

Aside from presenting data and abilities, instructors likewise help youngsters to

characterize their identity. From day by day communications with educators, kids realize

whether they are vital or unimportant, splendid or moderate, loved or disdained.

Instructors transmit these messages by the manner in which they address youngsters,

their outward appearances and signals, and by the measure of time they commit to
33

every individual student. Frequently instructors bring up students' insufficiencies more

than commending them for their endeavors and (little) upgrades. For some kids this is

exceptionally disheartening, and may result in sentiments of mediocrity and

disappointment. An educator needs to understand this. From the message that students

get, they choose whether they are willing to sacrifice interest in classroom exercises or

not. Authoritative instructors perceive that such association does not generally come

simple – it requires a trusting, mentally happy with learning condition ("Teaching

Effectively and Classroom Management", 2017).

In this study, the authors explored spatial dissimilarities in the effects of school

facilities on academic attainments of a group of provinces in the Philippines. Semi-

parametric geographically weighted regression (SGWR) methods were applied to public

school facility figures to know whether the effects of school facilities varied depending

on school locations. The analysis outcomes offered noteworthy spatial variations and

different effects of school extents and efficacies on the academic attainments of top

executing schools through the study range. SGWR modeling shown that schools in

scattered populated rural areas with simple facilities have performed greater than

schools in urban areas with poor facilities, specifying that simple facilities are significant

in distant schools. Since the effect on academic attainment differs depending on the

communal and economic substructure, the provision of school facilities ought to be

centered on the exclusive requirements of every community. A reorganized tactic is

beneficial for the administration of school facilities in the Philippines where education

resources are inadequate (Figueroa, 2016).


34

Foreign Studies. It covers outcomes from the works of authors beyond the

local borders. Aftermaths from these studies could support in addition to toughen the

statements of the researchers.

Advanced education plays an essential role for the learner and the civilization in

which he lives. It symbolizes the development of the individual which lets him to lead a

enhanced life as there are more opportunities of accomplishing a highly salaried

occupation; in turn the civilization is profited as the idyllic people are made who will

keep and maintain the civilization serene. ―According to a research conducted by the

Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the normal incomes turn out to be high and the

standards of job loss drops, with every single education level attained‖ (Pavel, 2012).

The evaluation system is based on a set of teaching standards derived from the

Framework for Teaching (Danielson, 2011).

According to Songu (2016), infrastructural facilities refer to the physical and

spatial enablers of education and knowledge. These contain classrooms, libraries,

laboratories, workshops, playfields, school farms and gardens etc. They have to be of

the appropriate quantity, size and quality to meet the minimum standards for promoting

meaningful teaching and learning as well as students‘ academic performance. Gisalon

(2011) studied scoping building quality and academic outcomes are numerous, it

encompasses on indoor air quality focus, the lighting, acoustics and noise, the occupant

density and thermal comfort. In fact, many studies conducted show the learning

environment can affect learning outcomes and student development (Serris et al.,

2011). The study also revealed that there is a relationship between the learning
35

environment with student in terms of their achievement, satisfaction, comfort, health

and enjoyment (Halim et al., 2010).

A study by Chen (2010), an empirical study finished in Manchester Metropolitan

University that included students, covered undesirable feelings of the reader services

librarian at work - A case study of the public libraries. It was established that teaching

modernization means the teachers having creativity, being able to reflect on, to design

and to apply new, diverse teaching methods or activities, understanding individual

differences of students, stimulating students‘ learning motivation and interests,

enhancing the students‘ learning effectiveness in the preparation before teaching, in the

process of teaching and in student assessment. In short, teaching innovation means

teachers having creativity and showing clear and lively teaching methods to make

students interested in learning, thus enhancing the teaching effectiveness.

A descriptive study done in Kenya by Ngala et al., (2010), in his study on

professional development‘s benefits, found out that teachers acquire more knowledge

which can help them deliver more while in the class. He established that more

productive teacher and professional training programs make a difference to the

teachers‘ abilities to utilize their available time in the teaching and learning

process. This covered the general benefits of professional development but the current

study focused on the influence of teacher‘s professional knowledge on students‘

academic performance.

Anta et al., (2013) conducted a research in Nandi District, Kenya, intended to

launch the relationship teachers‘ features and students‘ academic achievement. The
36

findings shown that students‘ academic achievement (in 2007, 2008 and 2009) was

below average for 45% of the schools, 6 (30%) performance was on average while 5

(25%) of schools had high student academic achievement. The poor performance was

accredited to an insufficient number of teachers in most secondary schools within the

district. On teacher requirement, the study proven that 65% of teachers were degree

holders, 25% had diploma certificates while only 10% were untrained. Cross tabulation

results suggest that there was no difference in performance between teachers who had

degree or diploma, suggesting that teacher qualification did not lead to increased

students‘ academic achievement. It also indicated that a participation of teachers in

professional development programs has benefited a lot with the improvisation of

teaching methods.

A study further revealed that there was a significant relationship between

leadership style of school management and teaching learning effectiveness of teachers.

The finding agrees with Chukwuka (2013) that cooperative leadership behaviour has a

great influence on teachers and students productivity. The study also showed that there

was a significant relationship between provision of adequate classrooms and teaching

learning effectiveness of teachers. The finding supports Oluwadare & Julius (2011) that

a favorable teachers/students environment obviously will enhance social security and

environmental safety, which is important in the assessment of school climates. The

study also revealed that there was a significant relationship between provision of

physical facilities and teaching learning effectiveness of teachers.


37

Ahmad et al. (2011) stated that students do not want harsh and stern teachers.

Also, students are disheartened by the old stereotype of methods of teaching. A study

approved by Aminuddin et al. (2012) has found the same sign. Students are actually

enthusiastic and prepared to study when there is a new enhancement pedagogical

approach such as 'edutainment'. Lessons should be conveyed to learners over the

entertaining style but suitable to their requirements. This feature is studied in more

aspect by the author and the results are further deliberated in this article.

The research by Rop and Chepkemoi (2013) titled ―Reconsidering teacher

assessment in the third realm: the case of Kenya.‖ His study shown that, like in many

third world nations, teacher assessment as practiced in Kenya has many inadequacies

and uncertain efficiency. It was determined that in Kenya, teacher assessment was

simply to guarantee obedience to instructions and principles, and allegiance to

principals. Omayo (2010) on the contrary found that teacher review strategies and

practices in Kenyan secondary schools displayed vulnerabilities, which are required to

be addressed if teacher review was to be utilized to enhance the eminence of teaching

and learning in Kenya. He is of the outlook that within the structure of imposed and

intentional changes that have taken place in Kenya‘s educational system, formalized

processes for the review of educators‘ performance are viewed by educators as rational

and vital for responsibility, quality enhancement and greatest practice.

According to Nega (2012), education‘s eminence and its oath came at the head

of all vital concerns in the setting of increasing recognition of the role of high education

for national development. However, the fact that there is no sufficient conducted
38

researches with precise to quality in higher education. The study conducted by Nega

(2012), mostly concentrates on the structures recognized to guarantee quality

education in a wider outlook. Due to the fast progress of global economy, education has

become an authoritative feature for improvement, advancement and development.

Investment in education is investment in human capital, and lack of the former equals a

lack of the latter (Albada, 2010).

Lawrence et al., (2012) conducted a research on the school environment

and academic achievement of standard six students. The data from 400 sample

participants is used to determine the relationship between school environment and

academic achievement. The result of this study indicated that there is no significant

difference in the school environment of standard six students in terms of gender,

medium of instructions. But there is an important difference in the school environment

of standard six students in term of locality of school. The urban students have better

school environment than the rural students. The urban students are having a stressful

environment in their day life very much because they are living in the mechanical and

hurry burry life. So they feel school environment is not very convenient for their studies.

Therefore, school environment enriched with modern facilities makes the student feel

comfortable in their studies that result to high academic performance.

An exploratory study done in Russia by Ekaterina et al., (2010) on time

management and professional identity of students of pedagogical universities used

simple random sampling to involved students of a pedagogical university. The study


39

revealed that ability of using individual skills of time management, is counts an

important factor educational and non-educational success.

According to Ngando (2011) in his descriptive study on time management

behavior among secondary school personnel in Kinango District, Coast Province, in

Kenya, majority of teachers and students do not report to school on the first day of

opening, most teachers write their arrangements of work when schools opened, went to

class without lesson plans, assemblies took longer and consumed classroom time. This

study did not examine the influence of teachers‘ time management of students‘

academic performance. It also left out the views of the principals and students. The

study focused on student‘s time management rather than the influence of teacher‘s

time management on students‘ academic performance.

A descriptive study done in Ghana by Kormla (2012) noted that the creative

leadership practices of principals influenced students‘ academic performance. This study

purposively involved students and teachers. The study found out that Kenya recognizes

that the educationand training of all Kenyans is fundamental to the success of the

Vision 2030. Education equips citizens with understanding and knowledge that enables

them to make informed choices about their lives and those facing Kenyan society.

Makhanu (2010) undertook an exploratory study on ―Principals‘ literacy in ICT: towards

improving secondary school performance in Kenya‖. It was found that there was a

statistically significant and positive though weak relationship between the ability of a

principal to use internet or email and school performance. Given that the effect size was

very small, it implied that the ability of a principal to use internet or email plays a
40

negligible role in influencing the school performance. The study concluded that there is

a positive correlation between ICT literacy level of a principal and secondary school

performance in the Western province of Kenya.

A research by Sunday (2012) revealed that there is a significant relationship

between physical school environment and students‘ academic performance in senior

secondary school physics. To him, the physical school environment has some influences

on students‘ academic achievement in senior secondary school physics. The physical

facilities, human resources, and relationship among them determine the physical

environment of the school. It was also discovered that poor facilities and inadequate

space, as well as the arrangement of items including seats in the classroom, library and

laboratory, would affect the organization of learning environment. Promising school

ambiance offers opportunity for students to work hard and enrich their academic

success. The product of this research approves with the view of most psychologists;

that fragile rapport concerning teachers and students has a miscellaneous effect on

students‘ approach in regards of proceedings in teaching –learning environment. Thus,

the teacher has to be welcoming and not uncaring, look admirable but not enticing. He

must attend to the necessities of students and be conscious of the dissimilarities

between them and be unbiased and fixed in dealing with them. It is significant to note

that when well teacher-teacher connection exist in school. It goes a long way in the

advertising of learning in the midst of students. And this allows them to share

understanding and familiarity that will develop the improved school environment.
41

Orlu, C. (2013) conducted a research between six hundred teachers and

students with the goal to discover environmental impact on the academic execution of

secondary school students, in Port Harcourt local government zone of river state. The

outcome of this research specified that the school environment has a substantial impact

on academic performance. For example, when a school is located in a raucous area like

an airport or in the heart of a city where events interrupt the teaching-learning of the

student. One will not anticipate such students in this range to be doing fine

intellectually. Noise in anything hinders with teaching/learning course. Nevertheless, the

physical structure of the school building and the communications between teachers and

students also influence students‘ performance. School climate can be a positive

influence on the condition of the learning environment or a substantial barrier to

learning. The school environment can affect numerous extents and people within

schools. For example, a positive school climate has been related with fewer

developmental and demonstrative complications for students. Thus, it is believed that

positive interpersonal relationship and possible learning chances for students in all

demographic surroundings can increase attainment deeds. Positive student-teacher

interactions carry about a optimistic and compassionate school climate for students for

smooth running of academic activities which results in decent academic performance.

Denial et al., (2014) examined the impact of the school environment and peer

influence on the students‘ academic performance. The study assessed school

environment factors and peer influence in term of the level of psychological impact they

have on learners. Twenty-one public secondary schools in sabbatical established that


42

school environment exert a potent influence on students‘ academic performance. The

school as an institution of learning which also act as a second home for learners has

been found to have a strong relationship with students‘ academic performance.

Therefore, the head teacher and the teachers should provide a favorable learning

environment where students are free to consult them when in need. They should also

provide adequate education facilities that can arouse interest in the students and to

motivate them to work hard. It is believed that a cordial relationship between the head

teacher and students create an environment favorable to learning as discussions

encouraged, and learners are listened. The head teacher works together with students

on how to succeed in life and academic work. In such a school, every member is

important in the decision-making process, and students are usually disciplined and

possess positive academic attitude. The important role of the teacher in the learning

process is unquestionable. Teachers have a lot of influence on their classroom

practices. Teachers should have and apply specific abilities without which their influence

may not be reflected in their students‘ performance in their subject. It is important to

note that teachers have a substantial impact on students‘ academic performance.

However, the school sector (private or public) and class size are two important

structural components of the school. Private school tends to have both better funding

and smaller sizes than public school. The additional funding for private schools leads to

a better academic performance and more access to resources such as a computer that

have been shown to enhance academic achievement.


43

RELEVANCE OF REVIEWED LITERATURE AND PREVIOUS STUDIES TO THE

PRESENT STUDY

After some research and review were made from various foreign and local

literature and studies, a comprehensive understanding and knowledge on the different

ideas, perceptions and opinions about the research were attained by the proponents.

Some of the concepts and action in this study were influenced by the literature and

studies earlier presented.

Regarding a school environment, we should be aware that scholarly attainment

isn‘t the only factor we should focus on. Relying too much on this element can give way

to overlooking more important values. A lot of students‘ special skills can only be

brought out by engaging in optimal education. Guarantee to a school environment

consisting of eminent elements can assure a set of brighter learners. With this in mind,

we can assume that a school environment in its utmost performance can therefore

affect the individual flourishing of its learners.

We should know that a nation or a society is made up by citizens. The root of all

society, the youth, is developed mostly within a scholarly institution and as stated by

British Council, (2014) a nation that possesses such educated people would be safe to

be termed as a literate nation. However, such institution is much complicated in many

ways than what we can grasp, there are still further exploration of its elements that can

improve the overall school environment.

A school consists of people that require getting along. These people are the

students, educators, the ones in charge, the administrators, and others that may have
44

consistent part in the school itself. Not only do they need to get along, they need to

tend to each other well, they need to grow in their interactions. The inability to connect

has a relation to students‘ inability to execute their full capabilities. Learners should feel

like the school is an environment they can trust, somewhere they can express

themselves creatively. Likewise, the teachers of the students who regard them as their

supporters have greater success outcomes (Gehlbach et al., 2012).

According to the article of Bulletin of Education and Research, Vol. 40, No. 2

(2018), a school is comprised of the physical and human component, both of which the

people in charge should be concerned about. The school environment may be

considered a long-term deciding factor for the students‘ future, like how et al., (2011)

defined academic achievement as student‘s success in meeting short or long term goals

in education. It is therefore an element that constitutes to an individual‘s in-school

success.

Students are honed inside the school; their values can be influenced by how the

school environment tends to them. As implied by Tsavga (2011) keeps that the learning

environment plays an essential part in determining in what way students execute or

reply to circumstances and situations around them.

Every single element in the school environment is linked to each other, any

element that is subjected to the slightest change can also affect the microenvironment.

As research proved, changes in a local climate will affect microenvironment, like plants,

individuals, and infastructures including the school environment and can probably cause
45

discomfort while in a classroom's learning process, most importantly for students and

teachers (Puteh et. al., 2014).

This research also has the objective to fill-in the knowledge gap present among

people. It aims to clarify that a school environment is such an essential element that

enriches the viability of the students. Some have the perception that a school

environment only consists of a physical component, contradictory to the reality. The

researchers want to shed some light on this issue and raise awareness about this

institutions role in development and the need to constantly check on and enhance the

overall quality of the environment. According to a recent policy brief from the National

Education Association (NEA) in 2016, ―when schools, parents, families, and communities

work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school

more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher level programs‖. Thus, we

can conclude that correcting the public‘s misconceptions can help provide a better

school environment.

We may not take it as much of a deal, but it is indeed something we must be

concerned about. Education and the quality of environment it provides may impact us in

a lot of life-changing ways that we may be overlooking as of now. The British Council

(2015), Nega (2012), and Figuera (2016) altogether had a somehow connected idea of

how the educational conditions can affect us in a country scale. Producing better

students, through the introduction of worldwide innovation to education systems can

help the nation in making decisions and coming up with new ideas of doing things
46

better. In fact, a recognized tactic is beneficial for the administration of school facilities

in the Philippines where education resources are inadequate.

Like the Quality of Philippine Education in the New Millennium (2012) stated, it is

a mission ―to offer eminence basic learning that is rightfully available to all via th

egroundwork for lifetime education and provision for the mutual good.‖ Others such as

Shanker et al. (2014) and Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya (2015) have

proposed that provision of eminence education carries about a magnificent future to

individuals in their future lives as adults.

Academic achievement being defined by Bossaert et al. (2011) as student‘s

success in meeting short or long term goals in education in the big picture, and

education being one of the significant investments for the majority nations Harris et al.

(2013); Tsavga (2011) stated that the learning environment plays an important part in

determining in what way students execute or reply to circumstances and situations

around them, thus molding these understudies into becoming better people at decision-

making and dealing with real-life situations.

On the downside, many countries fail to meet even minimum levels of quality

(World Bank Group, 2016). Chukwuemeka et al. (2013) listed the major components

that affect students‘ performance: deficient funding, inadequate facilities, low staff

enthusiasm, poor surveillance of schools, often changes in policies, environment etc.

Even our own country has its own shortcomings in education, Philippines encounter a

shortage of government capitals (Okabe, 2013; Shani, 2015). Cerda (2013) and

Sun.Star (2012) respectively said that the Aquino administration only spent about 2.2
47

percent of GNP to education, far from the desirable 6 percent; our country falls short by

48,802 classrooms.

A school environment, specifically a classroom environment plays an important

part in making an encouraging environment for educational procedure as said by

Suleman and Hussian (2014) Mazer et al. (2013) and Stadler-Altman (2010); Students‘

perceiving their classroom to be significant and involving can give way to their skills

assessment, self-concept, and capability. Preble and Gordon (2011) even took note that

students‘ perceptions are being molded by connections of people. Establishing such

connections first require competent faculty. Gregory et al. (2013) recommended that

―enhancing student-teacher interactions‘ quality depends upon a concrete

understanding of the productive teaching for adolescents.‖

A classroom has namely two components: the physical and human component

(article of Bulletin of Education and Research, Vol. 40, no. 2, 2018). Fusing the ideas of

Omodan et al. (2016) and Mazer (2013), interest among students that is triggered by

certain environmental factors of their classroom is a motivation to thrive higher

academically. However, there might be more struggle to elaborate on this due to the

fact that there is only slight information known about how teachers and students deal

with the school and classroom environment for their teaching and learning (Stadler-

Altmann, 2013).

Just as stated earlier, students‘ involvement can be a motivation to strive harder.

Philips (2014) added on this saying that students‘ participation in the procedure of

making their environment can strengthen them to have higher motivation. Teachers
48

and students have a fair share of responsibility, in developing the environment and

each other. Likewise, Solmaz et al. (2013), Fraser et al. (2010) and Oluwadre & Julius

(2011) put it as the friendly two-way connection amid students and teachers within the

environment has a significant role in academic attainment; and if so, teachers should be

able to show strong leadership behavior and understand, reduce the uncertainty

behavior in the classroom. This way, the balance in the environment is kept, portraying

one with social security and environmental safety.

The faculty are those who are mainly in charge of the environment, added that

they are the ones with more authority, they can set an example to their understudies.

The role of the teachers in environment development and management doesn‘t end

there, for teacher collaboration leads to teacher proficiency (Muchacka and Solak,

2015); this being backed up by Stoop (2011), stating that productive teachers should

use approaches allowing students to take accountability for their own learning. Though

a big challenge, Nocun et al. (2012) stressed out that it is important to build the

relationships among students and adults in school based on effective communication.

That being said, student learning commitment will inculate discipline and a greater

sense of responsibility in them (Ghorbani et al., 2013).

Besides the fact that the evaluation system is based on a set of teaching

standards derived from the Framework of Teaching (Danielson, 2011), there are other

two concepts that came to the fore: school climate and school culture (Houtte et al.,

2011). As the combined ideas of Weilin et al. (2013) and Sikorski (2013) have brought

light to, The physical setting of the school reflect the attention to the needs and
49

interests of each student; surveillance of physical facilities may be ensured since these

are in improving the school‘s overall performance (Suleman & Hussain, 2014), such

environment that provides for their necessities, escalate students‘ drive to study.

We should draw more attention into putting up a good environment since school

facilities serve as settings of learning for children and should therefore be molded by

designers to how comfortable and conducive it is (Glewwe et al., 2011) (Chukwuemeka

et al., 2013). Zais (2011) even appealed that the school environment is defined by the

bound to which school settings raise student protection and student health. Like any

other thing, the school environment has many components to it, even the slightest

changes can be impactful; it encompasses on indoor quality focus, the lighting,

acoustics and noise, the occupant density and thermal comfort (Gisalon, 2011).

Aside from the social relations and physical component, exerting effort on the

main framework of teaching in management is a must, its faculty must be competent

and complete with the qualities that would improve the environment. As Cummins &

Corbis, 2017 told, mechanisms in education have a higher influence on the educational

experiences of a student than a caring relationship with his or her teacher. Such effort

should be channeled in these aspects: learning resources, technology, program

enrolled, modules done, lecturing methodology, attachments, qualifications, co-

curricular activities, performance awards, students and lectures perspective in the

institution operating management also their opinions and appraisal toward education

(Hammond, 2013).
50

(Tagliacollo et al., 2010) and (Uya, 2011) have similar ideas on improving the

collaboration between execution and room organization going together with a teacher

that is understanding of the concept to be taught are must haves for a successful

school environment . As Preble and Gordon (2011) proposed, student and teacher

empowerment into policy making, management, and improvement raise motivation and

commitment.

The school environment isn‘t all educational framework and tangible

environment. It should be where there is a feeling of safety, security, consideration and

allow blooming in diversity. As Pavel (2012) stated, each student has unique abilities;

thus, when our concentration is exclusively on academic attainment outcomes, we can

constantly bypass of what matters the most-our students and their requirements to

guarantee their success (Preble & Gordon, 2011 p. 6). As a proof of the negligence

people often make of bypassing what matters most, Cavanagh (2012) argued that not a

lot of studies conducted considered elements like student involvement and learning

comfort.

Education is a foundation to our countries‘ citizens, citizens that will soon

manage everything, it is only fair that we don‘t hold back on providing the eminence

learning they deserve to be equipped of the knowledge they should possess I order to

face their future. Right now, there might be a lot of hindrances that come in the way,

many overlooked qualities, but we still have a long way to go. Given our advancements

in understanding this complex field, we ought to make changes on the way.

The paradigm illustrates the whole concept with the use of INPUT-PROCESS-

OUTPUT pattern.

Block 1 is the INPUT, which contained the variables used in the study. It

includes the co-researchers description of their school environment; the perceptions of

the co-researchers towards their school environment as learners; the implications the

findings offer to the school concerned policy development and management; and

crafting a SWOT analysis for further improvement of the current situation of the school.

Block 2 is the PROCESS, which contained the method to come up with the

results of the study. Using semi-structured interview to gather needed information from

the selected co-researchers, analysis and interpretation of data through transcription.

Block 3 is the OUTPUT, which presented the outcome of the both input and the

process. This is also relevant to the goal of the researchers towards finding out the

perceptions of the students towards their school environment to contruct a SWOT

analysis.

METHODOLOGY AND METHODS OF RESEARCH

This chapter presents the discussion of the research methodology used in this

study, research design, the co-researchers of the study, researcher‘s instrument

construction, validation of instruments, administration and retrieval of instruments, and

treatment needed in attaining the results.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The purpose of this exploratory research is to explore the perceptions of the

selected grade 11 students on their school environment as learners in Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc. for the current school year 2018-2019. At this stage in the

research, the perceptions are defined as the insights and the way how students

perceived their school environment, particularly the physical environment, student-

teacher interactions and academic conditions.

Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions:

1. How may the participants describe their school environment in terms of

1.1 School facilities;


1.2 Student-teacher interactions; and
1.3 In terms of classroom climate?

2. How do the participants perceive their school as learners?

3. What implications may the findings offer for school concerned policy

development and management?

4. How may the findings be utilized in crafting a SWOT analysis to further

improve the current situation of the school environment?


54

RESEARCH DESIGN

The researchers have used the Exploratory Qualitative Research Design wherein

the study is focused on the perceptions of the selected grade 11 students as learners in

Mystical Rose School of Caloocan Inc.

According to Surbhi (2016), the exploratory research is one which aims at

providing insights into and an understanding of the problem faced by the researchers.

Exploratory research willed to explore the research questions and doesn‘t provide a

decisive evidence and solution to an existing problem, but provides us better knowledge

about the problem. This type of research, explore something new that contains a

limited amount of information or that has not been clarified clearly (Dudovskiy, 2012).

For the purpose of this study, exploratory research design was used to explore and

describe the perceptions of the selected grade 11 students on their school environment.

SELECTION OF CO-RESEARCHERS / SAMPLING TECHNIQUE

The researchers used Purposive Sampling Technique, a non-probability sampling

method is suitable for an Exploratory Research, because it is more accessible and

reasonable (Barratt et al., 2018). The researchers selected participants who are

currently in eleventh grade that would meet the needed target results. Moreover, the

researchers may tacitly select a ―representative‖ sample with specific characteristics

that are applicable to provide their needs and for the main objective of the researchers

in conducting the study.

Ten (10) selected grade 11 students who are currently studying at Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc., were utilized by this study throughout the Academic Year
55

2018-2019. The said co-researchers of this study were also the subject of the study and

were selected purposively.

RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION / DATA COLLECTION

Stated below is the instrument used by the researchers in gathering data in

relation to the perceptions of the selected grade 11 students towards their school

environment as learners.

Interview Protocol is a semi-structured instrument of exploration by seeking

specific information that is relevant to the purpose of the study through asking

questions (Patton, 2015). The researcher dispenses interviews or face-to-face with co-

researchers, asking through telephone, or through groups, which are comprised with

semi-structured and open-ended questions that are merely not numerous (Creswell,

2014).

The researchers conducted the use of interview protocol as the main source of

collecting data and being analyzed to find out the objective of the study as defined in

the statement of the problem. The co-researchers are asked to answer the interview

protocol of the study. The interview protocol bore a roll of questions which are intended

to have its purpose.

Question 1 referred to the description of co-researchers‘ as students.

Question 2 emphasized how the co-researchers regard a school environment as

learners.

Question 3 shared the co-researchers‘ ideal school environment.


56

Question 4 referred to the description of the co-researchers‘ school

environment.

Question 5 talked about how the co-researchers‘ perceive their school environ-

ment as learners.

Question 6 pertained on how the co-researchers‘ adapt to their school environ-

ment.

Question 7 referred on how the co-researchers are affected.

Question 8 talked about if the co-researchers‘ interaction with their teachers

and fellow students affect their perception on their school environment as learners and

how.

Question 9 discussed if the co-researchers have something in mind to tell to

their school administrators and fellow students.

The interview questions are prepared and doesn‘t demand the co-researcher to

talk in some depth, they are free to share and express their own appraises in relation to

the study. The researchers ask follow-up questions in gathering enough information for

further clarifications.

Whatever stand the researcher is taking and whatever the data collection

method, still, there‘ll be an involvement of generation of huge amounts of data. There

are many ways of noting of what is said and done during an interview or focus group,

like taking handwritten notes, video-recording or audio-recording. The researcher must

transcribe verbatim before administering data analysis if the researcher used audio- or

video-recording as method of collecting data (Flick, 2013).


57

TREATMENT OF DATA / DATA ANALYSIS

According to Flick (2013), qualitative data analysis refers to the category and

explication of vocabulary material to produce statements concerning implicit and explicit

dimensions and structures of creating content in the material and the things included in

it. Qualitative data analysis is mostly just one step comprising the research process.

Likewise, it can be a focal point in qualitative research which other steps are

subordinated too. This step follows the field access has been found, sampling decisions

have been taken, data have been collected, recorded and elaborated. Once all data are

gathered and ready, that's the only time when an intensive data analysis begins. In

certain circumstances, analysis begins with data gathering in which both intertwined,

parallel methods are applied.

Furthermore, Flick (2013) added that, qualitative data analysis pertains to

processes and steps used in analyzing data and come up with an explanation,

understanding, or interpretation. It often emerges simultaneously with data gathering.

Thus, meaning and understanding often develop gradually over time in a non-linear

manner as the project goes on. Below are the five key steps that are commonly

followed in qualitative data analysis:

1. Become familiar with the data. The researchers should read and re-read

the data, noting conceptions, sighting out for meaning and detecting which

part of data have its purpose.

2. Focus the analysis. The researchers should distinguish key questions that

they sought to answer through analysis. They should focus their analysis to
58

the answer of a specific question. Another approach is to focus the analysis,

inspect the data as it recounts a case as an individual or as a particular

group.

3. Categorize the data and create a framework. This relates to as indexing

the data or coding on many occasions. The researcher begins by finding out

the themes or patterns that might contain ideas, concepts, behaviors,

correlations, phrases and etc. The parts of data has entrust code in an effort

to name the data and make it easier to organize and retrieve. The definition,

label and structure of the data are being supported by coding plan to give a

framework. The framework can be exploratory and the research questions

serves as a guide.

4. Identify patterns and make connections. Identifying themes are needed

in the knowledge of a researcher, seek for relevant significance of answers

received, distinguish connections between data sets or themes and tries to

dig out exposition from the data.

5. Interpret the data and explain findings. The researchers should attach

definition and importance to the data right after finding out the themes,

patterns, connections and correlations. It can be assist in this procedure for

the development of the lists of key ideas, make diagrams or use examples to

clarify the findings. It is essential to recall that qualitative data does not give

itself to conceptualization through population.


59

VALIDATION OF THE INSTRUMENT

After articulating an interview protocol, the researchers administrate preliminary

interview with five persons that are excluded from the study. They were being asked

questions formulated by the researchers, accordingly in interview protocol. This

involved the aims of the study to expound whether then questions are sensible and

valid to ask, and for illuminating revisions of survey questions. The weighted mean of

the validators is 3.52 which is categorized as ―very good‖. This validated the interview

protocol and allowed the researchers to proceed on their interview.


60

RESEARCHER’S ROLES AND BIASES

In qualitative research, the researcher‘s role is to try to enter the co-researchers‘

minds and feelings. This is a difficult job, since there‘s a possibility that the questions

being asked might be very personal to them. Occasionally, the experiences that are

being investigated are fresh in the head of the co-researcher. Whereas remembering

past experiences might be hard on other instances. Still, the data are being gathered.

The main obligation of the researchers is to protect the co-researchers including their

personal information. The co-researchers need to be informed about the securing

mechanisms and must be confirmed by relative research ethics review board before the

research starts. Novice researchers and practitioners in the field of qualitative research

must look for advice from an expert qualitative researcher before making a move on

their project (Austin, 2015).

The researchers are also learners themselves that has perceptions regarding

their school environment. The researchers have insights that may affect the

interpretation of the data collected from the co-researchers. Throughout the research

process, the researchers cautiously monitored their own perceptions related to the

study. The researchers also kept in mind that their personal perceptions can possibly

alter the methodology of the study and its outcomes. The researchers endeavor not to

let their personal and subjective feelings or thought to meddle with the study and its

data. It is guaranteed that there might be personal biases and subjective ideas that the

researchers have, the objectivity of this study will surely be withhold in order to assure

that the data gathered, presented and interpreted are unbiased as possible.
61

TRUSTWORTHINESS

According to Devault et al., (2018), in the field of qualitative research, the

aspects validity and reliability are not a major concept. These two are simply a misfit.

Qualitative researchers should instead focus on data trustworthiness is comprised of the

following components: credibility is the validity of the findings; transferability is the

applicability of the findings in other contexts; dependability is the reliability of the

findings at another time; and confirmability is the objectivity of the researcher while

carrying out the research.

An absolute description of the procedures and outcomes of the qualitative data

collection and exploration is significant to qualifying and ensuring that trustworthiness is

present in the study (Henderson, 2006 as cited by Veal, 2011).

Nowell (2017) stated that it is a must to present a qualitative in a systematized

methodology supported by the gathered data, thus giving the reader a chance to assess

whether it is plausible or not. All this must be done in a way that the qualitative would

that the analyzation of data has been carried on short, felicitous and complete manner

in order to acquire trustworthiness.

sa mga tao, sa mga classmate ko saka na ako nag-adapt sa environment, dito sa school

mismo. Kasi, ayo‘n nga ah hindi naman mahirap mag-adapt kapagka organized ang

isang bagay ‗di ba? Kasi makikisunod ka lang sa flow makakaadapt ka na ‗di ba? Dito sa

can – sa ano… sa canteen makikipila ka lang malalaman mo na ‗yong sistema ng

pagkuha nila ng pagkain. Sa Library makikisama ka lang sa ibang mong classmate na

dating taga-Mystical makukuha mo na ‗yong ano… ‗yong… way nila kung pa‘no, ay

‗yong ano ‗yong process kung paano ka makakasali do‘n sa ano, ay makakasali,

makaka-adapt doon sa Library nila kunyare, ayo‘n lang. Madali lang maka-adapt.

Paano ako naaapektuhan ng school environment ko? Ano ‗yong school environment,

ayo‘n nga kasi ‗yong school environment parang ano siya eh, directly proportional sa

learner ‗di ba? Kapagka maganda ‗yong school environment mo, maganda rin ‗yon ano,

‗yong… positive effect din ‗yong mangyayari no‘n sa… student. Kaya ayo‘n ah parang

‗yong school environment na ‗to, na mayron‘n ako ngayon na-meet niya ‗yong
70

expectations ko kaya maganda ‗yong positive feedback niya sa akin, kaya ayo‘n

marami… parang ano, maganda ‗yong ano sa ‗kin ‗yong nangyari sa‘kin, parang marami

akong natutunan gano‘n, lalo na sa mga teachers tsaka sa environment ko nga, ayo‘n.

‗Yong? ‗Yong school environment ko? Ayo‘n nga tulad ng sabi ko kanina, ulitin ko,

directly proportional ‗yong ano, ‗yong school environment sa learner, tsaka ‗yong

mga…. teacher. The way na magturo ‗yong teacher ano rin ah, parang… proportional

din sa kung paano maperceive ng estudyante ‗yong tinuturo nila. Kunyare ‗yong teacher

ah, ay hindi sa ano na lang environment, kunyare sa mga public school ah kunyare

gan‘to ‗di ba, pa – public school? Natural na maraming hindi well-maintai – hindi well-

maintained na mga ano ‗yong mga… ‗yong paligid, ‗yong classroom kaya ayo‘n. Tapos

‗yong mga, given na ‗yong mga estudyante makukulit tapps ‗yong teacher tamad pa

magturo ibig sabihin, mabababa – baba din ‗yong ano, ‗yong... tawag dito, ‗yong

feedback ng estudyante, ay feedback ‗yong ano, ‗yong way ng pagkatuto ng

estudyante. Kaya ayo‘n, bale an – ano ba ‗yong tanong? How does ano? How this…

‗Yong learning environment ko? Ayo‘n learning environment ko ngayon, tulad nga ng

sinabi ko kanina ‗di ba, ‗yong nakatulong ‗yon para mas ma – mas marami akong

matutunan ngayon. Lalo na ‗yong mga teacher, kasi ‗yong mga teacher magagaling nga

magturo tapos ‗yong learning environment ko na-meet niya ‗yong expectations ko,

ayo‘n.

Anong perception? Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow

students…Oo naman. Kasi ano eh, u-huhm… kasi ‗di ba kapag ka na ka ay… ‗di ko

nagets ‗yong tanong. Basta oo. Wait hindi ko kasi na-gets ‗yong tanong eh, parang
71

parehas lang siya dito. Sa sinasabi nila? O, kunyare classmate ko dating taga-Mystical

ta‘s may sinasabi din sila… Oo, ah no‘ng una, syempre no‘ng una nakaapekto, bago pa

lang ako dito eh, panay ang sinasabi ng mga… classmate ko na taga-Mystical, bulok

ang Mystical, bulok ang Mystical gano‘n ang sinasabi nila pero nakita ko naman na

maganda ‗yong sistema ng Mystical eh. Kaya ayo‘n, una nakaapekto siya sa‘kin pero

ayo‘n parang na-discover ko na lang na, ‗di, maganda ang sistema ng Mystical, dapat

ano… dapa – maganda ‗yong pagtuturo, maganda ‗yong facilities gano‘n.

Ayo‘n sa school administrators, ano ah… parang mas ipa-improved pa ‗yong ibang

facilities kasi improved na siya, well-maintained. Parang ipa – mas ipa-improved ba,

kunyare dada – dagdagan ng numbers ng C.R kada floor may C.R para hindi na akyat-

baba ‗yong mga students. Sa Library dagdagan ‗yong mga books para mas maraming

pag… maraming pag-refer-an ‗yong mga ano… ‗yong mga students. Ano pa ba? ‗Yong

ano pa, napapansin ko lang dito sa ano sa… facilities ng school ‗yong mga ano, tawag

dito ‗yong mga inclined-planes diyan masyado siyang ano, inclined. Mga four – four…

parang 45 ano ‗yan eh degrees oh. O, ‗di ba? Kasi ano eh, ‗pag – ‗pag ganyan parang…

exit route ‗yan ‗di ba? ‗Pag exit route di ba dapat ano… kahit exit route siya kailangan

ano pa rin safe pa din. Parang aya‘n, ipabago sana ‗yan, tapos ‗yong, itong court paki-

ano, parang… paki-ano, o kaya gawin na lang soundproof ‗yong room naming gano‘n.

Basta no, ‗yong kada program naman siguro isama na lang kami. ‗De charot lang. Para

wala kaming klase, ‗di kapagka may program siguro, ano lang ‗yong, o i-adjust para

kasi kapagka may class hours ano ‗di ba parang maaapektuhan kami no‘n ‗di ba. Ano pa

ba sa fellow students ko naman ayo‘n sa mga dating taga-Mystical, hindi po bulok ang
72

Mystical for your information, I‘m promoting Mystical ayo‘n. Ano pa ba?Sa mga fellow

students ko, kaya natin ‗to mga Grade 11 students, magresearch lang tayo. Sa Grade

12 may research ulit tayo, kaya natin ‗to. Sa mga Grade 10 may research pa din kayo

sa Grade 11 kaya ‗yong mga… kaya ‗yong mga ano susunod na bata ano, appreciate na

lang kung ano ‗yong mayro‘n tayo huwag na tayo maghangad ng mas malaki. Kaya

kasi… alam naman – kasi ‗di ba may feedback naman na… na… may feedback naman

na… naririnig ang mga admins ‗di ba? Kaya sila – sila na ang bahala na ano do‘n na…

mag… na mag-adjust para sa‘tin, kaya… Ano pa ba? Kaya kung mag – hihingi pa tayo

ng kung ano maghihingi pa tayo ng mas malaki syempre ibibigay nila ‗yon, pero ano

huwag tayo magmadali, kaya makuntento tayo sa kung anong mayro‘n tayo. For fellow

students and thank you very much.

Co-Researcher A-------Maganda Po Ako

Well, as an ordinary individual, I'm just an ordi- ordinary person of course...I'm

light- hearted uhm...likes to socialize uh...likes to be friendly uhm...what else?

Ah...that's it. As a student, well, as a student I'm a, actively participating in class

uhm...I'm also active when it comes, when it comes to the activities especially on the

uh...just activities, on the ones that have...with regards on...like on mental abilities. But

it's like the other, it's not like...you know. But when it comes to physical activities, I'm

not active on them as a student. Uhm...as a student also uh, I have the capacity to

become the teacher of a group like on our research, I'm the one who leads there

uhm...and also as a student...I ha- I have also weaknesses, hated subjects, like the

other students that are lazy on a particular subject, hated teacher, well like that.

A school environment? Well, uh, it is needed for uh for a learner, the school

environment should ah, how's it? The school environment should be holistic like that so

that, because our surroundings are, it's like the stu-learner depends on how he or she

adapts knowledge on his or her environment. Let's assume uh, the kid is, a 3 year old

kid, how he or she can learn if he or she's only at one place. He or she is needed to be

expose outside the environment to learn because when he or she is only at one place

ah, it's like that's only what he or she learns, it's like...the kid is narrow-minded. When

you show him or her around, he or she will become uh, he or she will have deeper

knowledge about things, yeah just like that.

School environment? Oh, this is not included anymore? Oh, okay. About t- the

ideal school envi- this? What's this? Is this 4? Oh, we're only in 3? What is an ide- ideal
74

school environment? Well, for me the school environment right now is already ideal for

me. Because what I want is to see white only then I have only one to look, because

when I see many colors around me, it's like it's attracting the uh...my eyes, it's like my

attention will be focused on it. Especially, then also the ideal environment for me, I'm

contained, I want to be contained like there's no window but it's uh, it's well ventilated.

Oh, I also don't like, the ideal environment for me also, it's like the, of course it's cold,

right? So that uh so that I'm comfortable when I'm studying, then uh it's bright, that's

what I want, it's bright that's why the color of my uh...what's this...my surroundings.

That, which is the ideal environment, my school environment.Ideal teachers? Uh I don't

have any ideal teachers, whatever teachers are there, that's what I want. Let's assume,

there's a concept where- I don't understand that well, like a concept that I don't

understand, what I want is...what I want is how he or she is going to describe the uh,

through ima- uh through images because I'm a visual learner, that's why that is what

I'm looking for a teacher to...to teach through images like that. Ideal? Oh, are my

classmates included? Of course the uh we have unity because we need it when uh,

when there are group works that need unity. When in uh academics, for example uh,

ideal is a discussion for me...The ideal for me is the active participation of all. That's it,

while the teacher is teaching, everyone is answering not just only one...carrying the

whole...class, it's like---- What physical? The appearance of our classroom?Ideal for

me? Well...my classmates are included now right? Since, I hate too much crowded

because, I don't know. I don't like it when it's like when something is in contact with my

skin. Yes, because it's like I'm not comfortable. What I want is that I can move properly
75

so that when, for example I'm reciting, I can raise my hand properly, then I can also

my answers if I have any, I can also ask for answers to them. Then uh...if we're going

to look at it physically, if we're going to look at it like that, ordinary, I want it to be

clean, has many plants then...that's all. Cleanliness is what I really want.

An ideal environment with the classroom included uhm...oh, my classmates are

included. What else? When uh, what I want is when I'm really studying, the discussion,

it's quiet. To uh, it's like...inputing knowledge right away...in mind. Because when it's

noisy, when uh many are noisy, surroundings, isn't it the...the ones you that your brain

absorbs are different, your brain is processing mixed info right? It's like the

uh...knowledge will be covered up. For example, noise- knowledge- noise- knowledge-

knowledge- knowledge- noise like that.

Yes, where are we? 4. Tell me something- the school environment now? Well, it's

uh, it sort of meet the...my uh, half of my expectations on the school environment that

we have right now. But what I don't like here is the...our school environment now

right? The uh maybe the...what's this called? The...oh, it's already exact rather. Then

the paints are, I notice e- everything, because the paints are too uh it's like...I think

that the paint is too dark. What I really want is white. Really white. Yes, the paint of

our room is creamy like that. I want white then uh, what else? School environment.

School facilities, yeah, the its CR uh...it's not properly uh, not properly maintained, how

it's maintained but the only problem is that they're closing it without informing the

students, that's why the problem is... That's why what will happen is the students at the

fir-first floor, they need to go to the fourth floor, maybe you'll be seen on the stairs.
76

That's why, yeah. Well, on the facilities, the uh library too, I really like the library since

the uh internet is free and it's really a big help on the uh on the...us especially on the

ones who's doing research. What else? Also the, but the only problem in the library is

when you print something there. Because it's expensive, five pesos right? When it's

colored, it's also five pesos. Oh, when it's black it's five too right? That's why, yeah

what else?

Oh...school facilities, I like the canteen because it's well-organized. I can order

right away. And the foods are also delicious, what else? The...the...yeah, turn it off for

a while. Oh...facilities, the- the clinic is also okay for me but the clinician is the problem.

The clinician, because the uh, my classmate is always uh...it's the uh, yeah. Because

our classmate is always on clinic then whenever she feels dizzy, it's she's not given any

proper medication and they give her Vicks. Oh, only Vicks is given to her, that's why

yeah it's like...my classmate is having an asthma attack, then you'll give Vicks,

seriously? What will happen there? But it should uh, they have atleast a nebulizer but

based on what I know it's pres- prescribed by the doctor, but...let's just leave them be.

What else? The uh of...admins, that, I like it too. The- then the cashier outside, it's

like...it's beautiful, that's all. My teacher?My teachers? We all have the same

teachersright? Well, they're great at teaching since they came graduated from UCC.

There uh, our teachers are really good especially uh, Ma'am Janna and Ma'am

Malazarte, can I drop a name? Yeah, Ma'am Janna, because...because Ma- Ma'am

Janna, I like the way she teaches because uh it's really understandable, Ma'am Janna

and my sister have the same method of teaching, because sometimes I ask her to
77

teach me too. Good- they have the same way of teaching, there's a lot of uh...a lot

of...visuals to show, if not visuals, they can explain it properly especially Ma'am

Malazarte. Ma'am Malazarte is uh she's not full of words only, she has a concept. It's

being taught, it's like, it's like whenever she teaches, I understand it immediately ev-

even it's a different subject. When on other subjects like Basic Calculus uh I'm not really

good at Math, I'm not really good at uh, at...formulas. But when uh, when other people

teaches me, I understand it. Maybe it really depends on the teacher. Yes, it's Sir.

Because when Sir Tan...only one te- you'll understand it in only one discussion. How

about the dumb ones right? Or slow that's why Oh- the dumb is not included. The

dumb is not included okay? It's not included. Oh, how about the slow learners in

Mathematics like me right? It should uh, there's a continuous discussion. For example,

for example he or she has a subject for two hours right now then he or she'll also teach

us two lessons, in the first subject, he or she should teach uh, lesson seven like that

then he or she should have many examples that have the same structure of form- of

the, of...given so that- uh on the problems, we can answer it uh, continuously even,

even the structures of uh of thatgiven will be different, we can answer it now right?

That's all. Yes, I can recommend them, that‘s all.

What's up? Aside from people? Well, our classroom...it's a...when...our classroom

is a, noisy. Yes, noisy but it's messy because we don't have any cleaning materials, we

always borrow here it Bonifacio. Sometimes, Bonifacio doesn't have any too that's why

we will go the Rizal hihi.Oh right, let's not clean anymore. That, what else? In our

classroom, yeah there's, there's a few- there's also trash from the CAT, their guns
78

then...yeah, it's really messy because the bottle of the uh softdrinks are also there. We

don't return it sometimes because we're lazy. O-uhm, that's all.

What perceive is this? I can't understand it anymore. Where? Insights how?

What can I say about our school environment? Well, yeah, my school environment right

now is okay for me because uh, yeah that's it uh, the color of the surroundings is okay,

but a little more lighting would be okay. My school environment right now, what I don't

like here is the court because it's beside our...our room. It would've been more okay if,

they made it more far if they put it on the highest floor maybe. Because uh, whenever

it's noisy, there are programs here, we wilk hear it from here especially we're at the

lowest floor. Oh, our focus will vanish on the educator mostly when Sir Tan is the one

who's teaching, right? It's is hard indeed the ones he's teaching, here is where we focus

our attention, we will understan what? Yeah. School facilities? What is what? Yeah, the

school facility, that‘s where I'm glad, on faci- facilities of uh, the school. Because it's uh,

it's all well-organized like here in the C.R., there are maintenances and it is being

cleaned everyday that's why it's cle- that's why it looks clean everyday. The canteen, oh

the ones who cook there, what they cook is delicious then it's sys- systematized when

you'll buy uh...a...food. In the library, yeah has a lot of, has a lot...has a lot of books

that we can use to refer. There are also many computers that can be used when we

need to do our research, yeah.

How did I adapt? Well, because well uh, since when I was young- I'm a, in public

school. I grew up studying in a public school, that's why it's public indeed. Oh, I grew

up stu- public school right? It's my first time to be in a private school, grade 11. Oh,
79

we're the same right? Yeah, what I did is not really that big...big adaptation. It's like at

first, I adapted uh to my surroundings, on the...on the uh people, on my classmates

then I just adapted on the environment, here in the actual school. Because, that's it uh

it's not that hard to adapt when a thing is organized right? Here at can- in uh...in the

canteen you'll just join the line then you'll know their system or way of getting food. In

the library just be with your classmates who are old students here in Mystical you'll get

the uh...the...their way on how, oh the uh the process on how can you join there on

uh, oh be able to join, to be able to adapt to their library, for example, that's all. It's

just easy to adapt.

How am I affected by my school environment? Uh... The school environment,

uh... Because the school environment is like uh, directly proportional to the learner

right? When your school environment is good, the uh is also good, the... It will also

have a positive efffect on the... student. That's why uh... It's like this school

environment that I have right now, it met my expectations that's why the positive

feedback is good for me, that's why yeah it's many... It's like uh, the uh is good for me,

the effect, it's like I've learned a lot, like that. Especially with the teachers then with my

environment right now, yeah.The?My school environment? Just like what I've said

earlier, I'll repeat, the uh is directly proportional, the school environment to the

learners, and the teachers. The way the teachers discuss, it's also uh, like... It's also

proportional on how the students perceive what they teach. For example, the teacher

uh, uh no, just on the environment, for example on public schools uh for example like

this right?Pu- public school? It's natural that a lot are not well maintai- not well
80

maintained uh the... The surroundings, the classrooms that's why, yeah. And then the,

it's given that the students are naughty and the teachers are lazy to teacher too. It

means, it's also low, the uh, the...what's this called? The feed back of the student, uh

feedback the uh, the way the students learn. That's why yeah, so wh- what is the

question? How does what? How this...my learning environment? My learning

environment right now, like what I've said earlier right, the uh it helped me to uh, to

learn more right now. Especially the teachers, because the teachers are indeed good at

teaching then my learning environment it met my expectations, yeah.

What perception? Does your interactions with your teachers and fellow

students...of course, because it's uh, u-uhm...because whenever you uh...I didn't

understand the question. Just yes. Wait, because I didn't get the question, it's like it's

all the same here. On what they're saying? Oh, for example my classmate that's an old

student of Mystical and they're also saying something...Yes, uh at first, of course at first

it's affecting, I'm only a new student here, they're saying that...my classmate from

Mystical, it's ugly in Mystical, it's ugly in Mystical that's what their saying that but what I

can see that the system of Mystical is good. That's why yeah, at first it's really affecting

me but it's like I just discovered that, uh, the system of Mystical is not good, it should

be uh...it should- the discussions should be good, the facilities are good like that.

So, on the administrators, uh...it needs uh more on improvements because it is

improved, well-maintained. It's like impro- more improvement, for example add more

C.R. per floor there's a C.R. per floor so that the students don't have to go up and down

the stairs anymore. In the library add more books so that more...the students have
81

more to refer to. What else? Also the uh I noticed here in the...facilities of the school

the uh, what's this called? The inclined planes there it's too uh, inclined. Four- four...it's

like 45 degrees right? Because it's uh, when- when it's like that like...that's an exit route

right? When it's an exit route, it should be uh...even though it's an exit route it need to

be uh should be safe still. Like that, I hope that it will be changed, then the, this court

uh, like uh, or also just make our room soundproof like that. Just uh, per program

maybe, just uh, or adjust it because whenever we have classrooms uh it's like we're

going to be affected too right? What else on my fellow students yeah on the old

students in Mystical, Mystical isn‘t ugly for your information, I'm promoting Mystical,

yeah. What else? To my fellow students, we can do this grade 11 students, let's just

research. In grade 12, we also have research, we can do this. On the grade 10 students

all of you still have research in grade 11 that's why the...the next ones uh, just

appreciate what you have don't yearn for more. That's why because...they know-

because there's already a feedback that...that...there's already a feedback... The

admins hear it right? So, they're will uh take care of it to...ad...to adjust for us, that's

why... What else? That's why if we're going to ask for uh going to ask for more of

course they will give it, but let's not rush, that's why we should be contented on what

we have. For the fellow students and thank you very much.

pupunta pa po kami sa kabilang building.. pupunta pa po sa ano, doña helen, lalakarin

pa po namin yon.

Siguro po, ngayon, sa... computer lab po nung, sampa..kasi po nung, first

grading hanggang.. third grading po ata... yung mga computer, hindi pa.. as in,
84

assemble lahat.. hindi pa namin nagagamit... kaya medyo nahihirapan kami, kasi as-

major namin yon, programming, so kaila- kailangan na kailangan talaga namin yon,

kaso, yun nga, hindi pa nagagamit.. Sa... teachers naman po…sa teachers naman…ano

po..ayun, may nag-karon din po kasi ng problema nung una…parang...hindi kasi

maayos yung.... ano ah? Kase, alam niyo po ba yon..ano, problema dun? Yun po, tas,

parang..siguro hindi maayos yung, hindi chineck yung as in yung background

nung...ano, tao, tas.. pinapasok lang... kaya, yun, anlaki as in, anlaking gulo talaga nun

nung nangyari dahil dun sa, teacher n-, sa teacher na yon.. yung akala namin, ok,

tapos.. yun pala.. lolokohin. Kase, ano po.. napapansin na po namin parang, di naman

ano, napapansin na namin konti-konti pero, hindi kami nag- masyadong nagduda , na

ganon kase.. yung sa pag, nag lelesson.. parang, wala lang.. lesson lang, basta ganyan

bigay, ok.. tapos may grade ganon. Tas..ano... na- nakakalungkot, kasi nung una.. siya

pa yung programming teacher namin, so.. yun yung pinaka subject na, naeexcite

kame.. tas na- nakaka down lang... dahil dun. Sa iba naman pong teachers... meron

naman po kaming teacher na gusto namin, yung as in ang kwela kwela niya tapos

naeengage kami lalo na yung subject niya Math so as in lahat kami nagpaparticipate sa

ganun. Maayos naman po yung pakikitungo as in parang anak niya yung mga

students.Sa classroom po okay lang naman po yung aircon. Yung as in yung

nagpapabayad tas hindi naman kami naiinitan di kami nahihirapan sa ganun. Siguro

yung sa ano upuan nagkakaroon na ng problema kasi natatanggal na yung sa arm chair

tapos yung itong mga pintuan hindi na masyadong maayos di ganun katibay kaya ang

daling masira ganun.


85

Ano, ma- mahirap kasi kapag ano kasi tulad nun yung mga instances na

maglalakad ka pa ng malayo ang hirap magkakalayo yung mga facilities tas kulang-

kulang pa kaya medyo mahirap mag ano...mag-aral.Sa teachers, sa teachers naman po

uhm siguro po ngayon okay. Sa ngayon po okay naman po yung mga teachers namin

na ah mga supportive naman po yung mga teacher namin. Meron po kasi kaming isang

favorite teacher talaga as in yung favorite ko talaga as in yung supportive. Hindi siya

yung adviser pero grabe siya sumuporta samin as in simula first grading hanggang

ngayon ano full talaga yung ano uh pinupush niya talaga kami eh tulad nung sa yung

event na...ano ba yun? Yung...basta merong event tapos pumunta nan- siya sa room

namin para icheer kami tas siya pa naglead nung prayer.Sa classroom naman po, okay

naman po komportable naman po di naman po kami nadidistract. Wala naman pong

noise na pumapasok ganun. Sa classroom po magulo po kasi. Magulo din po kasi yung

ano yung pakikitungo dun sa classroom. May issue, issue ganun pero pag kailangan

naman pong mag ano, magsama-sama ayos naman po yung pakikitungo.

Siguro...hm...hindi naman- wala naman kasi akong masyadong napansin na ano

na parang pagkakaiba kaya parang madali nalang mag-adjust. Pero yung sa

pagkakalayo-layo ng mga building nagulat talaga ko. Siguro po ano, yung pagtambay

sa court, ganun. Yung dun po kasi sa ano, walang- wala po kasing court dito yun yung

kasi yung isa sa mga hinahanap ko nung una pero meron na pala dun yun nga lang

malayo sa building namin.

Yung ano po...parang di naman masyadong naapektuhan.Academic success?

Hm...ngayon po sa classroom kasi po ano as in close po yung classroom. Wala- di tulad


86

dun sa public na ano open tapos yun maririnig mo talaga lahat ng ingay. Ngayon mas

nakakapag-focus mas madaling makinig sa mga lesson ganun. Uhm, ano naman nag-

improve po ko. Uhm...dati po kasi as in siksikan po kasi kami and ayun na nga public as

in mga nasa 70 kami sa classroom so tapos nandun pa ko sa pinakadulo kaya medyo

mahirap ano marinig yung mga pinagsasabi ng teacher tapos malabo pa yung- malabo

pa yung mata ko kaya di ko masyadong nakikita yung nga nakasukat sa board. Pero

ngayon, na...buti nalang mas madaling makapag notes.

Opo, isa po kasi sa mga tinitignan ng nga estudyante kung paano makipag- kung

oaano ituring ng teachers yung mga estudyante. Kapag yun, pag strikto diba as in

maaano tayo...ma- ano ba yun?Parang...anong tawag dito?Yung...yun yung strikto

maaano matatakot yung mga estudyante matatakot magtanong, ganun. Pero pag ano

naman, yung teacher ang ano ng awra, ang friendly tapos welcoming yung dating mas

marami yung estudyante na magtanong-tanong ganyan kasi ma- oo tas makakapag

open din sometimes ng mga problema tas mas marami yung ano nila mas magaan kasi

yung loob nila pag ganun yung teacher kaysa sa mga teacher na ano yung parang ang

hirap iapproach.

Yung sinasabi nung? Yung ano po, naginquire po kasi sila sa ano dati sa dati ko

pong school tapos sinasabi po nila na maganda yung turo tas may ganito rin yung fa-

yung mga facilities so yun yung pinaieexpect ko talaga yung maganda yung turo, ma-

maayos yung ano pagtuturo ng mga teacher tapos mas madali ring matututunan pati

na rin yung mga facilities na sinasabi nila na yung mga pinangako nila ng maayos.
87

Ano po, siguro po yung mga...i- kailangan nilang iemprove yung mga kulang. As

in improve, improve pa tas ayusin yung sa mga...halimbawa yung sa C.R. po, sa ano

din library, sa mga computer lab. Tapos kung pwede pang- kung pwede pang

magdagdag pa sila ng iba panh facilities. Halimbawa, science lab, kung saan pwede

kayo mag ano pag sa mga STEM students tapos pwede din yung sa mga...room para sa

mga H.E., magsusunod na mag-aayos ng mga kailangan nila for household. Parang mas

maganda po kasi yung hindi na maghahanap yung mga estudyante kung saan sila

gagawa, di na sila pakalat-kalat dun sa mga part. Sa kapwa estudyante...ano po, yun

i...kung ano po yung napapansin nila sa school, isabi po nila dun sa mga nakatataas

para maaware po sila dun diba kung ano yung mga nakikitang pagkukulang ng nga

estudyante tapoa kung pano yung- kung paano yung point of view ng mga estudyante

about sa school. Siguro yung sa C.R. palawakin pa tapos, tapos mas isure na malinis

kasi minsan nag aano na yung amoy tas kailangan yun. Tapos uh, dun naman sa library

dagdagan pa nila yung mga librong nakikita dun kasi yun talaga yung pinakamaaano

natin yung pinakareliable na makukuhanan ng nga ano research ganun thesis.

Co-Researcher B-------Ms. Kaye

Uh just… uh… my name is Kaye… yes…and, uh… I‘m the eldest among us

siblings, so… should really be responsible. Uh… obedient, as in, if… whatever the

teacher says, I really follow it when… asked to clean, will clean when… asked to to

something, will do it at least…the uh… just the same… listens, yeah. At… Cielito.

Hmm… s-…uh, because, s- the… Cielito, it‘s not that… big… Mmm, it‘s also small, but …

the cr‘s there are decent…. However, with the canteens, there‘s quite… uh… a

problem…because it- as in small and, crowded.. the students don‘t fit when… uh

breaktime, yeah. Ano… at Mystical Rose… buil- sampa…building. Because, there… the,

the, uh the… the environment of our school really affects the. Uh… the… our studies,

so… If there‘s a nice uh, management… All, and then… it‘s appreciated by the s- the

students, because it‘s more… they‘re uh, they‘ll learn better, it‘s easier to… the flow of

lessons. Maybe the, when uh… saying what is necessary, to fix… to the school

administrator, what is noticed on the teachers, the students… what nee- what needs to

be improved. *Inaudible*

M-maybe the ahh… as in everything‘s complete. It‘s clean… and, the students

are able to focus… because there‘s no, distraction taking place… for example at the

libraries, the books they need there should be complete… as in it should be, enough…

the, information they‘ll get when they go there. On… maybe on the, library… ah

on…computer, computer lab, it should… as in all the computers there, are functional..

then, they provide internet, so the students can also do research that… they don‘t have

to go to, outside.. internet cafes… so it‘s also safer for the… the students. As in… they
89

communicate, as in they, they, they.. it needs to be heart- it needs to be like that.. they

really touch the hearts of their students, and… it should uh, they encourage too…

because… because *inaudible*yung… as in like… the teacher should encourage and not

make you feel down. The… not…hard for the students to focus during the discussion of

the, teacher, it should be.. what they need should be there, the… chair, okay, and, the..

electric fans, aircon, it‘s fine too, so they don‘t, don‘t… not, the students don‘t struggle

in focusing during the discussions of the.. teacher, it should.. what they need should be

there, the chair, okay, and, the.. electric fans or aircon, it‘s fine too.. so they don‘t as

in, because when you‘re fanning yourself, sometimes it‘s distracting too, because of the

excessive heat. The.. camaraderie maybe, helping each other. That‘s the most- all, co-

operative.. and.. as in when, there‘s one that‘s caught, we‘ll help.

As of now… it‘s kind of hard, because, as I‘ve said on the building… it‘s,

separate.. like us, uh… when we need to go to the library, we‘ll need to go to the other

building… we‘ll have to go to uh, Doña Helen, we‘ll walk the distance. Maybe, now, on

the… computer lab of, sampa.. because on the, first grading until… third grading I

guess… the computers, it‘s not yet… as in, all assembled.. we are unable to use it.. so

we struggle a bit, because as- it‘s our major, programming, so we nee- we really need

that, but, there, it‘s still not in use.. on… teachers as well… on teachers.. uh.. there,

there was also a problem before… kind of…. It‘s not well… uh huh? Because, you know

about it.. uh, the problem there? Yeah, and, like… maybe it‘s not well. The background

is not checked properly, of the uh… person, and… let him go…. So, there, it‘s such a

huge, huge ruckus when it happened because of the, teacher t-, of that teacher.. we
90

thought , ok, then.. will actually… lie to us. Because, uh.. we noticed that, not too much

uh, we notice little by little but, we don‘t suspect too much, that it‘s like so.. on the,

when discussing.. it‘s like , it‘s nothing… just a lesson, just like that, ok… you have a

grade yeah. And… uh… it- it‘s sad, because at first.. he‘s our programming teacher, so…

that‘s the subject we, are most excited on… and uh- it‘s drags you down… because of

that. With the other teachers.. there‘s teachers that we like, as in he‘s so witty and we

engage especially in his subject, math so as in all of us participate there. The way he

deals with us it‘s like us students are his children. In the classroom, the aircon is okay.

As in like, charges money but doesn‘t understand us, like we‘re not struggling. Maybe

about the uh chair, we‘re having a problem because the armchair is almost falling off

and these doors are not too okay, it‘s not as sturdy so it‘s easily broken, yeah. Uh, it‘s

ha- hard because when uh, just like some instances where you have to walk far, it‘s

hard when the facilities are far from each other then also incomplete, so it‘s kind of

difficult to uh… study. On the teachers though, uh maybe as of now it‘s okay. As of now

the teachers are okay uh they‘re supportive teachers. He‘s not our adviser but his

support for us is so much as in from the first grading until now uh full uh, he pushes us

eh just like in that one event where… what‘s that? The… just, there‘s just that event

then he went- he went to our room to cheer for us and he even led the prayer. The

classroom on the other hand, it‘s okay, it‘s comfortable, we‘re not distracted. There‘s no

noise in there, yeah. In the classroom it‘s chaotic. The relations in the classroom are

chaotic. There‘s issues, yeah issues but when we need to uh, to come together, the

way we deal with each other is fine.


91

Maybe… hm… it‘s not- there‘s nothing much that I notice that uh like difference

so it‘s easier to adjust. But with the separation of the buildings, I was really surprised.

Maybe uh, hanging out at the court, yeah. Because at the uh, there‘s no- there‘s no

court here, that‘s one of the things I look for at first but there was, it‘s just far from the

our building. Just that… it‘s like not too affected. Academic success?? Hm… as of now in

the classroom, because uh as in the classroom is closed. There‘s no- not like in public

where uh it‘s open and you‘re going to hear all the noise. Now it‘s easier to focus,

easier to listen to the lesson, yeah. Uhm, uh I improved at least. Uhm…. Because

before, we‘re so crowded in public as in around 70 are in the classroom and I was at

the farthest too so I struggle it‘s hard uh to listen to whatever the teacher says then it‘s

blurry the- my eyes are blurry so I don‘t see what‘s written in the board too much. But

now, it-… good thing it‘s easier to take notes.

Yes, one of the things the student looks is how- how the teachers treat the

students. If, if strict, aren‘t we… uh… what‘s that? Like… what do you call this? Like…

strict uh, the students will get scared to ask, yeah. But when, the teacher‘s vibe is uh…

so friendly and welcoming then the students will ask and uh, yes they‘ll feel that they

can open up sometimes about their problems and they will feel at ease when the

teacher is like that uh like not hard to approach.

Said what? The uh, we inquire to them because uh in my old school and they

said that the teaching there is good and there‘s that the fa- the facilities, there we

expect that the teaching is good, it- it‘s nice, the teaching is nice and it is easier to learn

and the facilities too and they should keep up to what they say.
92

Uh, maybe the…i- they need to improve on what they lack. As in improve what

needs to be fixed… for example the cr, and on the library, the computer lab. And if

possible to- if possible to add more on their facilities. For example, the science lab, it

should be where you can uh for the STEM students and you can… on the room for the

H.E. students, to follow closely the needs for household. I think it‘s better when the

students will not have to look for a place to go be productive, so they are not scattered

around. On the students… uh, yeah i… whatever they notice on the school, they should

say it to the authorities to make them aware of it right? On whatever they see is lacking

among the students and on how the- how the point of view of the students are. Maybe

on the cr, it‘s better to expand it then, then to make sure that it is tidy because

sometimes uh the smell, and it is needed. And uh, on the library, they should add some

more books to be seen there because that‘s the most reliable source of uh research

yeah like thesis.

Co-Researcher C-------Twinkles

So, I am Twinkles, I'm 16 years old. Uhm...nakatira ako sa Bagong Silang

Caloocan City at galing ako sa kalayaan national highschool. Nagtatake ako ng grad-

senior high level sa Mystical Rose. Bilang estudyante, uhm...I'm from ABM Aguinaldo

uhm...running for achiever, candidate ganon.

Uhm siguro yung nai- ginagawa ko lang is hindi ako nagcocontribute dun sa mga

problema gaya ng sa basura at as much as possible yung basura ko sa ano...dito sa

school, ano...tinatapon ko siya sa tamang basurahan and then chaka yung mga, mga

school equipments, yung mga board, tas yung mga upuan, hindi naman siya...ano, hin-

hindi siya nasisira. Inaalagaan- ginagamit namin siya ng kung paano lang siya dapat

gamitin.

So yung ideal na ano environment ng school sakin is more on parang ano siya,

hindi naman siya basta puro classrooms then ano...kung ano, parang may puno-

puno...parang ano, kase diba yung mga puno parang ano siya...nakakapagrefresh siya

so kapag syempre stressful yung school days ngayon lalo na't paend na yung school

year para ano...makakatulong yun sakin as a learner para medyo marefresh yung mind

ko habang pag pahinga lang ng onti ganon. Yung ideal school facilities siguro na

achieve siya ng ano, ng current school na pinag-aaralan ko ngayon. Yung ano...yung

space nung classroom hindi siya ganun ka...tawag dito? Parang...di siya naaccomodate-

di siya overcrowded then ano...may aircon ayun. Ideal teachers, yung ano

lang...yung...ano...ba- yung way niya ng pagtuturo hindi...ano walang- hindi maraming

pasegue then ano lang siya, kung ano yung ituturo niya, ituturo niya yun ng ano- yung
94

simple lang. Hindi niya na yung pinapalawig ng- yung pinapahirapan- parang

pinapahirapan niya pa yung isang topic na simple lang naman siya oag inexplain mo.

Classroom climate, yung ano lang...walang competition.

So ngayon parang ano more on ano siya...mas dama ko lang na...yung school

environment...parang typical na ano siya, private school na puro classrooms kasi nga

more on academics lang ganon. Sa mga school facilities gaya ng sa mga library,

uhm...okay siya in a way na yung mga libro kapag may mga kailangan kaming isearch

na info, nakukuha namin yung- nakakahiram kami ng libro then yung mga computers

na nasa loob ng library, pwede namin siyang gamitin ng ano- kapag gumagamit kami

ng s- magsesearch kami ng school related then sa mga ano, isa pa dun yung

ano...yung science lab na naka- dun kami nakakapagexperiment ng mas maayos. Sa

mga teachers I can say na, kasi yung mga teachers namin ngayon kahit fresh grad sila,

yung kasi...half- almost half ng teachers namin ngayon mga fresh grads pero kahit

fresh grads sila ano...dahil nga siguro start- uhm nasa starting point palang sila ng

pagtuturo nila. Medyo nangangapa pa sila pero ano...ayk nakikita ko naman na

ginagawa nila yung best nila para makapagturo sila ng maayos, para mai-

ano...maipaliwanag sa mga estudyante yung...yung kung ano gusto nilang idiscuss. As

in yung classroom? Uhm okay lang siya. Uhm...for me ano siya hindi...parang ano...eto

siguro yung- yung room namin ngayon yung isa sa mga room na parang ano kom- ano

komportable lalo na as an ABM student. Lalo na't kailangan namin ng malawak na

space kapag nagbabalancing na sa mga ano...sa...accounting.


95

Yung ngayon? Yung nakikita ko siya as ano- yung nga yung sinabi ko kanina typical

lang siya na private school kasi diba uh parang ano yung...binibigyan ng impor- ano

parang nagfofocus kasi sila sa less space parang ano...unlike kung...papansinin natin

yung difference between sa public school, yung kasing school parang ano...sa private

school parang more on classrooms tas parang pinaliit nila yung space na ka ano na

kahit maliit yung space- na parang maliit yung pagkakaano, kaya niyang iaccomodate

yung mga estudyante. Mga tingin ko sa kanila ano...mas naano sila parang...ku- sa una

nagfofocus nila kung paano nila pakikibagayan yung mga estudyante na imemeet nila

para...kasi tingin ko kaya ganun yung ginagawa nila para mas...ano para malaman nila

kung panong strategy yung gagawin nila sa pagtuturo nila ng mga lessons, kung paano

nila mapapasabay sa mga lessons yung mga ano... yung mga estudyante na tinuturuan

nila. Sa classroom namin ano...yun, okay lang talaga siya, komportable.

Uhm since galing ako ng public nung junior high, tas ibang iba talaga yung

ambiance nung school ko dati sa ngayon. Nag- siguro nakapagadjust nadin ako dahil

syempre di naman ako umaabsent then everyday yung pasok so parang ano, kahit na

yung ano...yung hagdan sobra talaga siyang nakakahingal then ayun naka...kasi parang

nas- ano siguro nasanay nalang din yung- sinanay ko narin lang yung sarili ko dun sa

facility na meron yung school na pinapasukan na ko ngayon.

Uhm...hindi ko kasi sure kung ano...uh dun nalang muna tayo sa may

ano...hagdan. Kasi ano, tingin ko kasi may sakit ako sa puso so ayun- sobrang taas niya

kasi tapos ano...madalas kapag lalo na kapag late nako, ano hinihingal talaga ko parang

ano- dahil nga sabi ko nga kanina parang pinaliit lang yung area na kailangang sakupin
96

nung school. Parang ano...pinataas nila nang pinataas yung building, yung floors kaya

tas kawawa yung mga nasa 4th floor, nasa 5th floor kasi hingal na hingal na tas pag-

lalo na kapag rush na yung oras.

Bilang student...uhm...siguro ano, yung affect- yung effect nito sakin is parang

mas nagfofocus ako sa ano, studies ko kasi unlike ano, diba dahil nga puro classroom

nga lang yung parang facility dito, wala ka nang ibang mapupuntahan kundi library or

sa mga com lab parang ano uhm...more focus kana sa ano, sa academics mo kumbaga

stay ka nalang sa room mo or...kasi kapag- unlike nung dati kapag ano kasi kahit saan

magpunta parang- kapag halimbawa pumunta ka sa isang place ng sc hool niyo na ano

siya...parang pang pass time niyo siya, parang pang leisure time parang ano nawawala

sa focus yung...nawawala sa ano, sa academics yung focus mo kumabaga parang sa

pahinga ganun unlike ngayon na puro academics lang yung nasa mindset nila.

Tingin ko yung mga...yung sa school environment, mas nakatulong siya sakin na

ano...na mag- yun nga kasi nga dahil nga dun sa mga facilities parang nakatulong siya

para ano...nakatulong siya para sakin as an- an achiever ng section naming.

Uhm...minsan oo kasi ano parang ano, halimbawa yung perception ko dun sa mismong

school facilities sa mismong school environment, parang nagkaka- nagkakaroon kami

ng same na...kasi minsan napag- napag-uusapan din naman namin yun. Parang

ano...lalo na yung mga classmates ko parang...nagkakaroom kami ng share- ano

nagkakaroon kami ng same perception then ayun minsan nag-iisip kami ng pang...ayun

yung school facilities ng- yung ibang parts ng school facilities dapat parang hindi ganun.
97

Siguro ano...sa mga kapwa ko estudyante kung naninibago kayo sa mga facilities

since...lalo na sa mga galing ng public, siguro dapat sanayin niyo na yung sarili niyo

then... kung ano, kasi tulad ko diba sabi ko nga kanina yung sa- sa ano madalas akong

hingalin. Siguro ano, time management talaga kasi...lalo kung malayo yung bahay niyo

tas ayun...then sa mga ano facili- sa mga school facilitators, uhm...ayun okay naman na

yung pinakaenvironment pero...ano ba, okay na yung pinakaenvironment nung

school...yung interactions lang siguro yung medyo ganun.

Co-Researcher C-------Twinkles

So, I am Twinkles, I'm 16 years old. Uhm...I live at Bagong Silang Caloocan City

and I came from Kalayaan National Highschool. I'm taking grad- senior high level in

Mystical Rose. As a students, uhm...I'm from ABM - Aguinaldo uhm...running for being

an achiever, like a candidate.

Uhm...maybe the- what I only do is I don't contribute to the problems like the garbages

and as much as possible my trash on the...here in school, uh...I throw it on the right

place and then the, the school equipments, the boards, then the chairs, it's not

that...uh, it's not corruptible. We're taking care of- we are using it the way it should be

used.

So, the ideal uh, environment of school for me is more on it's like, it's not

concentrated with just classrooms then uh...if uh...it's like there are trees...it's like,

because the trees are... they're like...they're refreshing so of course school days are

stressful right nowespecially the school year will end soon so it's like...it will help me as

a learner to refresh my mind while taking a little rest, like that. The ideal school

facilities, maybe it has been achieved by uh, my current school that I go to right now.

The uh...the space of the classroom is not that...what's this called?...it's like...it's not

being accomodate- it's not overcrowded the uh...there's an aircon, like that. Ideal

teachers, just uh...the...uh...the way he or she teaches is not...uh there's no- there's no

many segues then it's just like, whatever he or she teaches, he or she will teach it like-

just only simple. He or she doesn't make it complicated anymore- making it hard- like
99

he or she is making the topic that is actually simple when you explain it. Classroom

climate, just...no competition.

So now it's like uh more on uh...I feel more...the school environment...it's like a

typical uh...private school that has a lot of classrooms because it is more on academics,

like that. On the school facilities like the library, uhm...it's okay in a way that when we

need to search some infos, we are getting the- we can borrow some books then the

computers that are inside the library, we can use it- when we're using a- when we will

search any school related then on the uh, aonther thing is the uh...the science lab that-

that's where we can experiment in order. The teachers, I can say that, because our

teachers right now are fresh grads but even though they're fresh grads uh...because

maybe it's the begin- uhm they're just on the starting point of their teaching. They're

still slightly figuring out but uh...I see that they're doing their best to teach properly, to

ex- uh...explain to the students the...whatever they want to discuss. As in the

classroom? Uhm it's okay. Uhm... for me it's not...it's like...maybe our- our room is one

of the rooms that's like uh com- comfortable especially as an ABM student. We need a

huge space mostly when we're balancing in uh...in...accounting.

Now? I see it as uh- that's it, like what I've said earlier it's just a typical private

school because uh it's like the...it's giving impor- uh it's like they're focusing on less

space like uh...unlike if...we're going to pay attention on the difference between public

school, the school is like...In private school is like more on classrooms and it's like they

made the space tinier that uh even though the space is little- it's like small the way it's,

it can accomodate the students. What I though of them is...they're more like...if- at
100

first, they're focusing on how to get along with the students that they'll going to meet

to...because I think that the reason they're doing that is for...for them to know what

strategy that they're going to do in teaching the lessons, on how they're going to keep

the lessons in pace of...the students that they're teaching. In our classroom uh...yeah,

it's really okay, comfortable.

Uhm since I came from a public school when I was in junior high and the

ambiance of my school before is really different from my school now. Maybe, I had

adjusted because of course I don't have any absences and there's class everyday so it's

uh, even though the uh...the stairs, it really makes you gasp for air then that...because

it's like- maybe got used to the- I got myself to get used to on the faclities that my

school has right now.

Uhm...I'm not that sure if uh...uh let's focus first on the uh...stairs. Because uh, I

think that I have a heart disease so that- it's reallt high then uh...most of the time when

especially I'm late, uh I'm really gasping, it's like- because like what I've earlier it's like

they just made the area smaller that needs to be taken over by the school. It's

like...they made the building higher, the floors that's why and I feel sorry for the ones

at the 4th floor and 5th floor because they're really gasping for air and when- especially

when rush times.

As a student...uhm...maybe uh, it's effect on me it's like I focus more on uh, my

studies because unlike what,because the facilities here are like classrooms only, you

don't have anywhere to go to except for the library and com lab, it's like uhm...you

focus more on uh, your academics like you only stay in your room or...because when-
101

unlike before when uh because anywhere you go it's like- when, example, you went to

a place in your school that uh...like it's your pass time, like leisure time it's like uh your

focus is missing...missing in uh, in academics like when resting unlike now that they're

mindsets are more on academics. I think that the...the school environment, it helps me

more to uh...to stu- that's it, right, it's because of the facilities that sort of helped for

uh...it helped me as an- an achiever of our section.

Uhm...sometimes yes because uh it's like uh, for example, my perception on the

actual facilities in the actual school environment, it's we're hav- we're having the

same...because sometimes we talk- we also talk about it. It's like uh...especially my

classmates are like...we're having a share- uh we're having the same perception then

yeah sometimes we're thinking of...yeah the school facilities of- the other parts of

school facilities shouldn't be like that.

Maybe uh...on my fellow students, if you're still adjusting on the school facilities

since...mostly the ones who came from public, maybe you should practice yourself to

get used to then...if uh, cause like me, what I've said earlier the uh- the uh I catch my

breath most of the time. Maybe uh, it's really time management because...especially if

your house is far and yeah...then on the faci- on the school facilitators, uhm...the main

environment is already okay but, what uh, the main environment of the school is

already okay...the interactions maybe just a little like that...

Co-Researcher D--------Mats

I'm Mats from grade 11-Aguinaldo ahh sa tingin ko madedefine ko yung sarili ko

bilang ordinary individual as parang friendly, parang madaling pakisamahan tapos ano…

parang ayoko sa mga hindi organisadong bagay parang gusto ko lahat na aayon-parang

gusto ko lahat maayos, ayoko ng mga bagay na magulo sa paningin ko. As a student

ano masasabi ko naman na uhm kaya kong mapagsabay ang mga tawag dito acads

mga gawain yung mga extra curricular activities tapos ano masipag ako mag sulat.

Gusto ko lahat natatapos, ayoko ng may mga nakatamabak na gawain tas yon masasbi

ko naman na competitive student ako.

Ah school environment ano importante yan bilang student, bilang learner kasi

yung iba kasing mga student uhm yung uhm tawag dito? Yung pag aaral nila minsan

kasi naapektuhan hindi lang dahil sa sarili nila kundi dahil sa mga nakapaligid sa kanila

so para sakin importante talaga yung kung ano yung ginalawan mong lugar especially

nasa school ka diba parang sarado lang yun depende nalang kung paano ka

makihalobilo sa mga taong nakapaligid sayo. Parang yung mga teachers, masasabi

mong may pag galang and then yung parang hindi istrikto parang masasabi mong

school pero hindi talaga totally school kasi yung kung paano ka nila tinetreat is bilang

student hindi parang pinepressure ka dahil kelangan mo mag aral ganun. Ideal school

facilities is yung mga facilities na malilinang hindi lang yung para sa isang student para

lang sa mga specific students like kunware yung merong mga music room, merong mga

dance studio kasi alam mong hindi naman lahat ng students ano lahat naman tayo may

ibat-ibang way kung paano natin idediscover mga talents natin kung paano natin
103

ieemprove so feeling ko yung mga ganung facilities makakatulong para hindi lang ma

discover hindi lang ma develop yung talent mo kundi para magain din yung confidence.

Yung mga kaklase mo na hindi nag hihilahan pababa yung may mga yung may pag

kakaisa yung hindi mabigat sa loob na climate yung masasabi mong magaan yung loob

sa isat isa ganun.

Ah dito sa Mystical ok lang naman medyo hindi ko lang feel kasi siyempre mag

kakaiba tayo ng building pero kung dito sa environment sa Dona Helen masasabi kong

okay naman maayos naman. Ano to be honest, kulang meron namang mga school

facilities katulad ng library maganda yung library actually napupunan yung mga needs

ng mga students pero kung facilities para sa lahat ng students para mapunan lahat ng

pangangailangan ng students feeling ko hindi siya sapat. Teachers, okay naman wala

naman akong problema sa teachers kung sa tingin naman ng iba masusungit yung mga

teachers para sakin depende din naman yun eh kasi iba iba naman sila ng way ng pag

tuturo so nakadipende nalang din sa students kung paano nila iintindihin yung mga

teachers. Anong masasabi ko? Ano wala akong problema sa mga kaklase ko actually

sobrang mababait sila and nararamdaman mo na pag may kailangan ka tutulungan ka

nila and then ineenjoy namin yung company ng isat isa. Sa tingin ko uhm may nakikita

akong parang competitive na school environment kasi example kasi sa strand namin

ABM merong walong section so yung environment mo tapat-tapat yung room feeling

mo may ibat-ibang students kang nakakasalamuha di mo alam kung magaling sila o

hindi so yun yung nararamdaman ko parang ang competitive ng environment kaya


104

parang para sakin gaganahan talaga ako mag-aral ng mabuti para mapakita ko sakanila

kung competitive yung school environment ko kaya ko silang tapatan.

Yung facilities anong masasabi ko, ano sana madagdagan man lang yung mga facilities

pero wala narin akong masasabi sa schol facilities ngayon ok naman na siya ang sakin

lang sana meron pang madagdag kasi para sa ika iimprove din naman yun ng school

hindi naman para sa students. Sa teachers naman uhm, ano wala wala naman akong

masasabi keep up the good work. Sa classroom namin okay lang nakikita kong kahit

hanggang next year magiging ok parin yung environment ng classroom namin.

Yung environment nung school natin ngayon okay lang naman nung at first

siyempre parang hindi ako sanay kasi siyempre grade 11 SHS tayo prang iba yung

school environment na papasukan mo kasi may mga transferees bagong students

galing public schools and tapos ako dito ako grumaduate so parang nakakapanibago at

first pero kung maiintindihan mo naman at malalaman mo naman na kaya karin naman

nilang pakisamahan ok lang din naman sakin wala namang problema don.

Uhm siguro makakaapekto siya sa positive way feeling ko makakaapekto yung

school environment para mag pursigi ka mag aral para mas mabigyan ka ng dahilan

para hindi ka tamarin kasi alam mong kasi kapag tatamarin ka tas yung mga

nakapaligid sayo parang competitive parang pang hihinaan ka ng loob so ako ayoko

naman ng ganun so yun yung gagawin ko ganun siya nakakaapekto sakin pero in a

negative way na nakakaapekto siya kasi parang napepressure ka dahil sa mga taong

nakapaligid sayo.
105

Yes, kasi yung way ng pagtrato ng mga teachers sa students isa din yung factor

para masabi mong kung anong klaseng school environment ang meron sa isang school

pero sa mga teachers kung yung teachers parang iba yung trato sa students parang

masasabi mo na ay parang ayoko ng ganitong school environment parang hindi ko

gugustuhin yung ganito pero kung yung teachers naman is okay alam mo sa sarili mo

and ma fi-feel mo rin naman kung ok yung pakikitungo sa students edi parang hindi ka

mag kakaproblema dun kasi parang alam mong okay yung school environment ng

paaralang iyon.

Okay lang sana, maimprove lang yung way ng sistema ngayon lalo na sa mga

temporary schedules kasi maraming hindi natutuwa, sa school environment sana

mapagsama sama lahat ng students sa iisang building para hindi malayo yung loob

namin sa iba pa naming kapwa shs student kasi pare parehas lang naman kaming

grade 11 eh so why not pag sama-samahin kami para mabuild din yung friendship

namin and para mag-kaisa hindi lang SHS.

Co-Researcher D--------Mats

I‘m Mats from grade 11-Aguinaldo ahh I think I define myself as an ordinary

individual as friendly, like easy to be with and uh… like I don‘t like things out of order

like I want everything going as I want it to be like, organized, I don‘t like things that

are messy in my sight. As a student uh I can say at least that uhm I can balance the,

what do you call this, acads, the tasks, the extra-curricular activities and uh I am

industrious on writing. I want everything finished, I don‘t want tasks piling up, the uh I

can say that I‘m a competitive student.

Ah school environment uh it‘s important as a student, as a learner because the

other students uhm it‘s uhm what do you call this? Their studies are sometimes affected

not because of themselves but because of what surrounds them so for me it‘s really

important what kind of place you‘re in especially you‘re at school right? It‘s like just

closed in, it depends on how you interact to the people around you. Just like with the

teachers, you can say that there is respect and then like they‘re not strict, you can say

that it‘s a school but it‘s not totally a school because the way they treat you as a

student, not like you‘re pressured because you need to study, like that. Ideal school

facilities, are facilities that are improved, not just for a student, specific students like for

example there‘s a music room, dance studios, because we know that not all students

are uh all of us has a different way of how we discover our talents, how we improve, so

I feel like those facilities can help not only in discovering, not only in developing talents,

but also to gain confidence. Your classmates that are not rowdy on the way down, ones
107

with unity, that they don‘t hold grudges on the climate, you can say that they are okay

with each other, like that.

Ah here in Mystical it‘s okay but I don‘t feel it that much because we‘re in

different buildings but if here in Doña Helen, regarding the environment I can say that

it‘s nice. Uh to be honest, it lacks, there‘s school facilities like library, the library is nice

actually it provides all the students‘needs but I feel like it‘s not enough. Teachers,

they‘re okay I don‘t have problems with the teachers if others think that the teachers

are strict, for me it depends because the tecahers have different ways of teaching so it

just depends on the students on how they‘ll understand their teachers. What can I say?

Uh I don‘y have any problems with my classmates actually they‘re really nice and you‘ll

feel that whenever you‘re in need they‘ll help you and then we enjoy each other‘s

company.

I think that uhm I‘m seeing sort of like a competitive environment because for

example, in our strand ABM has eight sections so your environment has rooms infront

of rooms you feel like there are different students you can encounter with you don‘t

know if they‘re skilled or not so that‘s how I feel it‘s like the environment is very

competitive that‘s why it‘s like for me I‘ll be really motivated to study hard to show

them that if the school environment is competitive I can move along with them.

The facilities I can say that, uh I hope that the facilities will increase but I don‘t

have anything to say to the school facilities now it‘s okay for me I hope there are things

that can be added more for the improvement of school not for the students. On the

teachers uhm, uh I don‘t have anything to say keep up the good work. In our
108

classroom it‘s okay I can see that until next year the environment of our classroom will

still be okay.

The environment of our school now it‘s okay. At first of course I‘m not used to it

of course we‘re grade 11 SHS it‘s like you‘ll enter different school environment since

there are tranferees from public schools and then I graduated hereso it‘s like new t first

but if you‘ll understand and you‘ll know that they can also get along with you it‘s also

okay for me there‘s no problem there.

Uhm maybe it‘s affecting me in a positive way I feel like the school environment

will influence you to study hard so that you have more reasons and for you to not be

lazy because you know that if you become lazy and the people around you are like

competitive it‘s like you‘re going to lose motivation so for me I don‘t like that so that‘s

what I‘ll do. That‘s how it‘s affecting me but in a negative way that will influence

because it‘s like you‘re being pressured because of the people that surrounds you.

Yes, because the way how teachers treat the students it‘s also one of the factors

for you to know what type of school environment the school has but on the teachers-

but if the teachers treat the students differently you can say that it‘s like I don‘t this

type of school environment it‘s like I‘ll never want this but if the teachers are okay you

know to yourself and you‘ll also feel if the teachers get along with their students so it‘s

like you won‘t have problems since you know that the school environment of tht school

is okay.

It‘s okay I hope, the way of the school‘s system can be improved especially on

the temporary schedules because many aren‘t happy about it. On the school
109

environment I hope the students will be together in one building so that our we won‘t

be away from the other SHS students because we‘re all grade 11 students do why not

put us all together to also build our friendship and to unite not only SHS.

section. Ah, maganda yung pagpapatakbo maganda yung pag uh… pagkakasaayos ng

Ah, I‘m Maru and uh I‘m the eldest among the second- among us two siblings

and uh I also help my parents financilally so that‘s it. Ah, I study at Benigno Aquino

Senior High Schools- High School uhm there‘s uh… it‘s kind of okay because I‘ve been

there for 4 years. The teachers are nice, their school facilities are good. Ah, I‘m now

studying at Mystical Rose school of Caloocan uhm… I‘m grade 11 ICT Paterno and at

the Sampaguita building. Ah, uh, me as a student? I‘m naughty but once I know that

it‘s too much, I stop, just like my pranks on classmates, of course when I know that it‘s

sort of hurtful and getting personal, I stop teasing already.

I appreciate our environment here at school because uhm especially with the

elementary students, I keep myself from cussing because they can‘t hear what they

shouldn‘t hear.

Uhm… my ideal school environment , of course uh organized, pleasing to the

eyes uhm… adequate supplies, and of course the educators are beautiful. Uhm… about

ideal school facilities uhm… of course the classroom is cool. Uhm, the seats and tables

are in order an dthe C.R. is nice, of course it can‘t be missing. Ideal teachers uhm ide

ideal teachers, kind of strict to decrease my naught in the classroom.

Ah my school environment now ah is uh it‘s orderly, it‘s nice because it‘s much

much cool and organized, much organized and not like before with lots of trees, now

it‘s okay. Uhm uh… school facilities, ah of course we have a decent cr, it‘s clean, and

we have aircon in our room, and there‘s electric fans yes. Uhm, of course our com lab

uh, it‘s nice, it has good sides bu but it‘s just that others are not as pleasing. Ah, what‘s
114

with our teachers ah… uhm, cool- they‘re cool at teaching especially the male teachers,

they ride on with the students‘ jokes. Uh… it‘s like more- more interesting to listen

because yeah, they‘re good at getting the students‘ attention. In our classroom there‘s

uh… we have the- what I‘ve said earlier, the aircon. There‘s an aircon..an aircon, an

electric fan, there we have decent chairs and tables. uhm… I saw that it was clean,

eye-pleasing compared to other cr‘s. teachers, uhm… they‘re nice- they‘re nice ah and

also uh… I‘m more interested in listening because it‘s more –mo- their ages are not far

from ours so they understand us better. Ah, how I see my classroom? It‘s messy

sometimes, but we have unity and we have respect as a whole. Ah, the way they run it,

it‘s nice, the uh… the way it‘s organized the uh, our facilities here.

How did I adapt? Of course with the help of uh my fellow students, they gave

me more uh… to soci- socialize with them.

How did it affect me? How it affects me, of course uh, I minimized my cussing

building because as I‘ve said, here in our building, you‘re not allowed to cuss at be

noisy because of the elementary students. The teachers, are much uh, as I‘ve said,

much interesting to listen to because they understand us more as a student. Ah there,

as I‘ve said, I‘m more interested to listen to teachers, I learned a lot a lot of new

lessons, I learned a lot so it affects me more with my academic success success my

success, my grades changed, they increased compared to the previous ones, I listened

now compared to then when I did not.


115

Uhm it‘s affected uh uhm because my teachers and the students, I‘m more uh…

my ideal environment is like this and that, it‘s okay even if it‘s a bit messy, the teachers

are kind of strict.

Uhm to the admin uhm okay thank you for disciplining us and may you cut down

on it a bit, even on the black sock please, and to my fellow students uhm guys we can

do this uhm to our admin ahh I hpe we get to see the swimming pool and to the

students on the other hand, ah guys we can do this, we‘ll pass in the name of God.

Co-Researcher F-------Dumal

Ako si Dumal, 16 years old, size 9 yung sapatos, gold yung relo, panganay sa

tatlong magkakapatid. Sa Tala High School section Hopin, third floor at science building.

Yung Tala mapu-mapuno siya tapos ayos, ayos naman yung environment dun malinis

yung mga pagkain. Ngayon andito ako sa Mystical Rose School of Caloocan, Inc. grade

11 ICT Paterno sa Sampaguita Building. Isa ako sa mga magugulo sa classroom

maingay pero maaasahan mo sa academic works tapos yun lang.

Sumusunod ako sa school and regulations ng school lahat ng bawal sinusunod

ko di ko ginagawa yung mga dapat na hindi uhm may- may respeto ako sa mga

teachers then pag may nakikita akong kalat na di ano wala sa tamang basurahan

tinatapon ko.

Uhm ideal school para sakin yung maganda pagpapatakbo maganda

pagpapatakbo ng ahh ng ahh mga admins, ng principal, teachers hindi naman

masyadong mahigpit pero andun pa rin yung pagdidisiplina kasi kung walang disiplina

ah wala- walang mangyayaring- walang mangyayaring maganda, puro- puro kalokohan

puro away ganun. Ideal facilities para sakin tutal ICT ako hm…gusto ko pag sa comlab

maa- maa- maayos tas mas updated tas latest yung mga cp o okay lang naman sakin

kahit walang aircon pero yung di naman masyado mainit. Ideal teachers syempre ma-

ano maganda pakikisama maganda gwapo katulad ko tapos may pag nagtuturo hindi-

di sinasamahan ng biro pero di naman lagi tapos seryoso tapos di bias kasi yung

naranasan ko sa dati kong school ay pagiging bias sa mga ano pa favorite niya yung

estudyante, ayun din mataas dun siya lagi tapos yung di niya- yung di niya- mga
117

kaaway niya mga di niya gustong estudyante bababaan niya o ibabagsak niya. Ideal

classroom syempre ano maayos, maayos yung lamesa, yung upuan tapos kumpleto sa

equipment para mas- mas- mas matuto yung mga mas- mas matuto kaming mga

estudyante. About sa classroom climate gusto ko yung classroom climate namin ano

climate for me ideal para sakin 18 degree celcius. Gusto ko yung nanginginig na ako

para mas- mas- ma- mas makinig ako sa mga teachers ko syempre pagnanginginig na

ako tas inaantok sasawayin na ako, ayun.

School environment ngayon sa Mystical hmm ma- maayos na man siya. Pag late-

maayos naman pag may mga late na estudyante hindi- hindi pinapapasok tapos yung

sa water- water fountain kasi sa dati kong school walang ganun. Dito sa facili- ano

school facili- school facilities kagaya ng C.R., yung C.R. ng boys mabango pero yung sa

C.R. ng girls ang baho talaga di ko alam kung bakit. Pag- pag sa room naman maayos

naman maayos yung lamesa, upuan, tapos yung tiles.Tapos yung pag sa comlab ma-

maganda naman siya maayos yung computer maayos yung- yung mouse, keyboard,

upuan tas malamig hmm wala na. Pag sa- sa mga teachers naman maayos naman yung

pakikisama at hmm nakikipagbiruan sa mga estudyante tas maayos dun yung pagtuturo

pagoras ng turo-turo. Pagoras ng biruan, biruan pero pag nasosobrahan na sa biro

syempre may limit din yung mga teachers. Nagagalit, nagtatampo, nagtatampo sa amin

sa mga estudyante.

Hmm…nakakaapekto sa akin syempre pag nakakaapekto sakin syempre pag

nagagalit o kaya nagtatampo yung mga teachers minsan nahi- nahhihiya ako kasi

minsan may kasalanan din ako sa kanila isa rin ako sa mga promoter ng ingay sa room.
118

Hmm sa iba kong teachers ma- masu- masungit pero pag pero pag nasa mood maayos

ma maayos pakikitungo sa mga sa amin sa mga estudyante nakikipagbiruan. Sa

classroom, sa mga kaklase ko halos lahat pasaway. Pasaway man pero may pakikisama

para na- para na kaming magkakapatid dito pag may problema yung isa syempre

dadagdagan namin ng problema pero aayusin namin. Sa classroom yung yung

president namin mabait tapos siya- parang siya yung nagiging- pag wala adviser namin

siya yung nagiging tatay namin siya yung laging nagsasabi ng dapat siya lahat.

Sa pag ano mahigpit sa- mahigpit sa paggamit ng gadgets. Pag sa late talaga di

na di na nagpapapasok tas pag sa school uniform pagincomplete may katumbas na

punishment. Di dito sa building namin sa sampaguita ma- ma ano masikip siya para

samin kasi maliit tapos walang masyadong pag gagalaan tapos third floor lang ayun. Sa

mga teachers, gaya ng sinabi ko kanina maayos naman ano maayos naman yung

pagtuturo tapos laging may projects tapos assignment para mas matututo kami. Para

sa akin magiging results nun mas matututo ako mas mataas yung yung grades ko. Mas

maprepressure akong gawin yung mga dapat. Nakikita ko yung sa para sakin yung

classroom, nakikita ko ay yung classroom ko gamit mata na ma- maayos naman pero

pag free- pagfreetime syempre ano magulo.

Hm siyempre mahirap di naman kaagad kaagad mama- makaka- makakaadjust

ako nung una kasi na nag aaral ako dito na walang kasamang kaklase o kaya kakilala.

Siyempre ano, ano lonely tapos ayun yung mga kaklase ko naman pala palakaibigan

palabiro, ayun. Mas ayun mas naadjust maayos at mas mabilis kahit papaano syempre

ginagalingan ano oo ginawa ko yung ginagawa ng mga kalase ko. Nagi- naging
119

palakaibigan din ako palabiro katulad- katulad lang ng ginagawa ko nung nasa dati sa

dati kong school.

Nakaapekto to sa akin, sa mga kaklase ko dahil naman sa mga kaklase ko hmm

mas naging lalo ako nagiging pasaway pero inuudyok din nila ako mag-aral ng mabuti

tas ginagawa- ginagawa ko yung dapa-t dapat gawin tas mas tumaas grades ko

kumpara sa dati. Ayun nga sa sa pag gawa nga ng academic works, PT's, assignment,

tapos extra curricular activities. Syempre ano nakakapagod pero masaya kasi na

nagagawa mo yung best mo.

Oo, nakakaapekto sakin kasi yung mga teachers ko magaling- magaling talaga

sila makisama tapos magaling magturo. Nakakaapekto to sa environment- sa school

environment kasi mas feeling ko tanggap- tanggap nila ako tapos ayun nga.

Sa school ad- ad- administrators mas- mas pag buti- mag pag butihan nilang ang

maghigpit at magdisiplina sa mga estudyante, sa mga bata sa mga estudyanteng

katulad ko, sa mga kapwa ko estudyante syempre- syempre nag-aaral kayo sa school

na to mas pinili natin to syempre sumunod tayo sa mga sa mga regulations ayun lang.

Co-Researcher F-------Mr. Dumal

I am Dumal, 16 years old, the shoe size is 9, has a gold watch, the oldest of the

three siblings. In Tala Highschool section Hopin, third floor and science building. The

Tala is sort of full and yeah, the environment is good the foods are clean. Now, I'm

here at Mystical Rose School of Caloocan, Inc. grade 11 ICT Paterno in Samoaguita

Building. I'm one of the naughty students inside the room noist but you can entrust

with academic works and that's all.

I'm following the school and the school's rules and regulations all of the things

that aren't allowed I follow it I don't do what shouldn't be done uhm I- I have respect

for the teachers and whenever I see a trash that uh not in its proper disposal I dispose

it.

Uhm ideal school for me is the way the uh admins run the school is good, the

principal, teachers are not that strict but discipline is still there because if there's no

discipline uh no- nothing will happen- nothing good will happen, full of idiocies full of

conflicts like that. Ideal facilities for me besides I'm an ICT hm...what I want for the

comlab it's- it's- it's good and more updated then the cps are on its latest it's okay for

me even there's no aircon but not that hot.Ideal teachers of course go- uh the way they

interact is good beautiful handsome like me when he or she is discussing it's- he or she

is not adding a joke but not always serious and not bias I experienced from my

previous school was the bias of the teachers on the uh when he or she is in favor of

that student, the student will always get a high grade and the- and the- his or her

enemies his or her disliked students will have a low grade or failing grade. Ideal
121

classroom of course uh it's good, the tables are good, the chairs and it's complete with

equipments so that we, students, can learn more. About the classrooom climate I want

our classroon climate to be uh climate for me, 18 degree celcius is ideal for me. What I

want is that I'm already shivering so that I can listen more to my teachers of course

when I'm shivering and sleepy they will reprimand me, yeah.

School environment right now is Mystical hmm it- it's good. When late- it's good

when there are late students, they're not allowed to enter and on the water- water

fountain because my previous school don't have that. Here in facili- uh school facili-

school facilities like the C.R., the C.R. of boys smell good but the C.R. of girls really

stinks I don't know why. When- when it comes to our room, it's good the tables are

good, the chairs and the tiles. Then the comlab it's good the computers are good, the-

the mouse is good, keyboard, chairs and it's cold hmm nothing else. When it comes to

the- the teachers, the way they interact is okay and hmm they're joking with the

students and the way they teach is also good when it's time for discussion. When it's

time for joking, joke but whenever it's beyond the limit, the teachers also have limit.

Getting mad, sulking, sulking with us, students.

Hmm...it's affects me of course when it's affecting me of course when the

teachers are getting mad or sulking sometimes I get emba- embarassed because

sometimes I also have wronged them cause I'm one of the promoters of noise inside

the room. In the classroom, almost all of my classmates are naughty. They're may be

naughty but has interactions that are- we're like siblings here when one has a problem

of course we'll add up to the problem but we'll fix it. In our classroom our president is
122

kind and he- it's like he's being- when our adviser isn't present he's standing as our

father the one who says that he should be all.

When uh it's strict on- it's strict when it comes on using gadgets. When it really

comes to the lates they're not really allowed to enter and in school uniform when it's

incomplete there's a punishment. Here in our building in Sampaguita, it- it's uh crowded

for us because it's small and don't have that much places to go then it's has only three

floors, that's all. On the teachers, like what I've said earlier, the uh the way they teach

is good and there's always projects and assignments so that we can learn more. For me

the results will make me learn more and my grades higher. I'll be mlre pressured to do

what needs to be done. I see that for me the classroom, I can see my classroom by my

eyes it- it's good but when it's free time, it's messy.

Hmm of course it's hard you won't adjust that easily at first because when I

studied here I don't have my classmates or anyone that I know with me. Of course uh,

it's lonely and my classmates are actually friendly and like to joke, yeah. I adjusted

more well and fast atleast of course I do my best uh I just do what my classmates

does. I'm becoming friendly and a joker like- like what I was doing on my previous

school.It's affecting me, on my classmates because of my Class hmm I became more

naughty but they're also encouraging me to study hard and I- I do the things that

should be done and my grades became higher compared from before.

Yes, it's affecting me because my teachers are really good at interacting and

teaching. It's affecting the school-school environment because I feel that they accept-

accept me more, that's all.


123

On the school ad- ad- administrators more improvement on being strict and

discipline on the students, on the young students like me, on my fellow students of

course- or course you're studying in this school of course let's obey the regulations

that's all.

Yes, it's affecting me because my teachers are really good at interacting and

teaching. It's affecting the school-school environment because I feel that they accept-

accept me more, that's all.

I'm Yesxczaria. I'm a grade 11 student taking up ABM strand in Dona Helen

Building. As a student siguro ano, uhm…madali lang ako pakisamahan kaso masyado

akong ilag sa mga tao lalo na mga di ko kakilala. Actually wala kasi wala namang

epekto sakin yung mga nasa paligid ko parang ganun.

Siguro yung ano yung- yun nga yung maayos yung mga- yung di katulad dito,

mainit tapos yung mga C.R. ganun. Kasi dito diba nga sa Mystical kasi yung mga ibang

classroom like sira yung mga aircon ganun parang di siya appropriate sa ating mga

estudyante kasi parang ano di siya maganda ganun parang syempre nagbabago yung

ano yung klima natin so parang the more na mainit parang mawawalan ka ng gana

mag-aral ganun. Siguro ano kung ano yung mga teachers dito kasi para sakin okay

naman yung mga teachers na nagtuturo dito sa Mystical kasi parang ano sobrang

friendly nila parang nanay mo na rin sila ganun so parang ang dali nilang pakisamahan.

Actually dito sa classroom parang gusto ko kasi ano hindi ganun ka kaingay kasi sa

classroom namin sobrang ingay eh parang mainit sobra parang gusto ko yung medyo

tama lang yung alam nila kung san sila lulugar.

Uhm yung ano sa school environment dito sa Mystical parang ano siya uhm

medyo okay naman para sakin kasi parang malinis naman kahit papaano pero di ko

lang gusto like yung mga cr's kasi sobrang liit ng spaces nila, ganun parang ang pangit

lang dapat mas nilakihan nila yun diba? We, students, parang mas pangangailangan

natin like C.Rs. yung mga facilities na meron tayo dito.Yun nga parang di naman ako

nageexpect sa ibang teachers na nandito kasi para sakin okay naman yung mga

teachers na nandito sa Mystical kasi sobrang mabait na sila parang sobrang dali
125

pakisamahan ganun. Yung sa classroom naman gaya nga ng sabi ko kanina yung ano

kang- yung alam nila kung hanggang saan limitasyon nila parang yung classroom namin

ah di ganun kaingay di rin ganun ka kainit kasi madalas mainit talaga dito sa classroom

namin kaya ayoko ng ganun.

Parang ano mas maganda siguro kung ano pag yung surroundings mo mas

malinis ganun maayos kasi diba di naman natin maiiwasan sa isang school na meron

mga sira sira ganun pero kahit na papaano maayos pa din naman sa paningin ng mga

tao. Siguro sa teachers uhm mas maganda siguro kapag-- kapag mas madali silang

malalapitan kasi nga diba yung ibang teachers parang nakakatakot silang lapitan dahil

nga masungit sila sa paningin ng ibang tao ganun parang ano mas maganda siguro

kapag mas yung official features di ganun kaistrong para sa iba ganun. Actually yung

classroom dapat mararamdaman mo na welcome na welcome ka mostly sa mga

classroom diba parang mainit, parang feeling mo parang na su-suffocate kana di lang

basta sa tao pati na rin sa mismong classroom na yun ganun.

Actually ano yung nagi-start ako dito grade 7 sobrang hirap kasi syempre wala

akong kakilala ganun bago siya para sakin so parang nung una di naman ako

nageexpect ng sobrang taas kasi nanggaling din ako sa ganun kagandahang school

pero alam mo yun parang madaming nasasabi na good sides about dito sa Mystical

parang inaccept ko na lang siya kung ano meron dito. Ano kasi madalas talaga kapag

nakakaapekto siya kapag kunwari kapag mainit parang ang hirap magaral ganun di

yung mga tao sa paligid mo parang mas lalo kang alam mo yung parang ang sikip sa

pakiramdam ganun na naganun yung ano mo yung mga nangyayari sa paligid mo. Ayun
126

nga sabi ko yung mga nasa paligid parang malaking impact siya sa bawat isa sa atin

kasi diba parang diba- parang diba kahit ikaw mismo ganun uhm parang mas

mahihirapan ka lalo na pag na feel mo na parang na leleft out ka sa kanila, yung mga

ginagawa nila parang di mo kaya ganun, ganun parang di kanila katulad parang

nawawalan kana rin ng gana mag-aral ganun.

Uhm actually para sakin yung mga siyempre we have own our opinion sa mga

ganyang bagay para sakin naman may malaki talaga siyang epekto lalo na sating mga

estudyante kasi nga diba sabi ko di tayo pare parehas di din tayo madaling maka cope

up sa nakapaligid satin di siya ganun kadali as a student kasi alam yun parang ikaw

kung bago ka lang dito parang mahihiya ka pa ganun di mo pa totally sanay sa mga

nangyayari sa paligid mo.

Uhm gusto ko sabihin sa mga administrators na sana yung facilities na meron

dito sa Dona Helen is mas maging maayos at maging appropriate siya sa students di

lang basta ano kasi mostly may finofocus sila na ano na pinagtutunan sila ng pansin sa

bawat isa sa mga estudyante parang gusto nila dito, magfofocus like sa acads kung

acads lang ganun di sila nakikipag-interact sa mga ibang schools pa and then sa mga

students naman na kagaya ko sana alam nila kung ano yung limitasyon nila kung

hanggang saan lang sila sa mga ginagawa nila dito sa loob ng campus.

Co-Researcher G-------Ms.Yesxczaria
I'm Yesxczaria. I'm a grade 11 student taking up ABM strand in Dona Helen

Building. As a student maybe uh, uhm...I'm easy to get along with but I avoid people

most of the time especially the ones that I don't know. Actually there‘s- no, my

surroundings doesn't have an effect on me like that.

Maybe the uh- yeah that's it uh the uh is in order- unlike here, it's hot and the

C.Rs. yeah. Because right here in Mystical because the classrooms like the aircons are

broken like that it's not appropriate for us students because it's like uh it's not good it's

like uh of course our climate is changing it's like the more hotter it is it's like your

motivation to study is fading. Maybe uh if uh for me the teachers here are okay the

teachers that are teaching here are okay for me because it's like uh they're also really

friendly like your mothers too it's like they're easy to get along with. Actually here in our

classroom it's like what I want is that uh it's not that noisy becauaw our classroom is

very noisy it's like it's really hot uh I sort of want it to be a little more quiet wherein

they know their limitations.

Uhm the uh the environment here in Mystical it's like a uhm it's okay for me

because atleast it's clean but I just don't like the C.Rs. since they're small, yeah it's like

it's just not good they should've made it bigger right?we students it's like our

necessities like C.Rs. the facilities that we have here. That's it it's like I'm not expecting

anything to the teachers that we have here because the teachers here in Mystical are

okay for me because they're really kind it's like they're really easy to get along with, like

that. In the classroom, like what I've said earlier the uh- they know their limitations like
128

with our classroom uh it's not that noisy it's also not that hot because it's hot in our

room most of the time that's why I don't like that.

It's like uh maybe it's better if uh when your surroundings are clean like that it's

good because we can't really avoid the broken areas here in school but atleast it's still

decent in the eyes of the people. Maybe when it comes to the teachers uhm maybe it's

better if- if they're more approachable because the other teachers are like hard to

approach because they're a little intimidating in the eyes of other people, yeah it's like

uh maybe it's more okag if their official features aren't that strong for others like that.

Actually the classroom you should feel like you're really welcomed mostly in the

classrooms right it's like it's hot, you feel like you're suffocating not just on people but

also in that actual classroom.

Actually uh when I started here at grade 7 it was really hard because of course I

don't know anyone yeah it was new for me so it's like at first I'm not expecting a lot

because I also came from that great school but you know it's like they're a lot of good

feedbacks about here in Mystical it's like I just accepted it whatever includes here. Uh

it's really often when it's really affecting when for example when it's hot it's like it's hars

to study like that uh the people around you it's like it's a big impact on each and every

one of us because it's like- it's like even you are like that uhm it's like you'll suffer more

especially when you feel like you're being left out, what they're doing it's like you can't

yeah, it's like you're not like them it's like you're losing your motivation to study.

Uhm actually for me the uh of course we have our own opinions on those things well

for me it really has a big effect especially on us, students because I said we aren't the
129

same also we can't cope up that easily on what surrounds us it's not that easy as a

student because you know it's like you're just new here like you'll be embarrassed like

that when you don't totally used to on what's happening on your surroundings.

Uhm I just wanted to say to the administrators that hopefully the facilities that we have

here in Dona Helen will be improved and be appropriate on students not just on uh

because mostly they're focusing on uh they're paying attention on each student it's like

they want here, will focus more on acads if acads only yeah they are not interacting

with other schools and then on the students like me I hope that they know what their

limitations are their limitations on what they're doing here inside the campus.

Co-Researcher H-------Ms. Prisoned Girl

Ako nga po pala si Prisoned Girl, estudyante ng Mystical Rose School of Caloocan

na kumuha ng ABM Strand. Bilang isang mag-aaral meron kaming mga subject na

mahirap na ginagawa tapos ano…tapos ano rin, nagkakaron din kami ng mga conflict

ng mga classmate ko pagkadating sa groupings, pagdating sa mga ano namin sa major

studies.

Bilang isang mag-aaral pinapakita ko yung care ko sa environment ko pagdating

pa lang din sa paglilinis tapos ano uhm sa pagkakunwari parang ibabalik mo sa dapat

niyang kalagyan yung mga gamit na hiniram mo ganun.

Yung ideal school environment para sakin ano, yung okay lang siya kahit na

maliit pero ano, yung focus lang in talaga sa pag-aaral tapos yung malinis syempre

tapos may unity din yung mga estudyante sa eskwelahan na yun atsaka yung maganda

yung facility syempre tas yung binibigay na services ng school. Ideal school facilities

ano, syempre malawak tapos ano tas yung maraming kang lugar na pwedeng puntahan

na kunwari may mga science laboratory kahit ano basta yung connected din sa studies

na mas maeenganyo yung mga estudyante tas yun nga malinis tas pagdating sa mga

cubicles maayos tas di masikip atsaka di rin marumi tas kasi nakakaapekto din yun sa

mga estudyante.Ideal teachers ano yung strict pero marami kang matutunan tas

nakakasabay sa estudyante niya na may respeto pa rin sa isa't isa. Climate uh sa ideal

classroom ano yung ano namin dun may unity tapos uhm yung masaya pero pagdating

sa studies seryoso na tahimik ganun.


131

Yung school environment dito sa school natin nakikita ko na ano uhm yung

facilities ano masyadong, di parang di pa yare tas pagdating din sa C.R. hm…ano

parang di siya maayos tas laging nagsisiksikan sa loob pagmarami ng estudyante na

magccr tapos yung aircon lalo na yung…ano tawag dito yung aircon parang lagi na lang

nasisira parang nakakaapekto yun sa pagaaral kasi sa sobrang init. Masasabi ko sa

facility ng school ano maganda naman yung pagdating sa mga library science lab ganun

yung classroom din maayos tapos yun lang. Sa mga teachers ko ano sila yung mga

teacher na istrikto pero kayang sabayan kayong mga estudyante tas andun pa rin yung

respeto tapos atsaka ano masaya naman. Classroom, mas maingay tapos sobrang saya

ng room kahit na ano puro kalokohan pero pagdating talaga sa klase namin

nagpaparticipate naman sila.

Tingin ko sa school environment ko ano man okay naman sila nakikita ko naman

sa environment ng school, maganda yung nabibigay na gawain sa mga estudyante dun

mo rin makikita yung pagiging united nilang lahat. Sa school facilities, yun mga ano

naman siya maganda siya kaso nga lang pagdating talaga sa mga mga kagamitan ng

school parang kulang yung sa mga aircon nga. Tingin ko sa mga teachers ko ano yung

una ano naman talaga sobrang istrikto nila tapos ano naman ano pero pagdating ng

mga medyo freetime na nakikisabay na sila sa mga kalokohan rin namin. Sa classroom

namin ano pagdating sa classroom namin pag cleaners ka talaga di na malinis di ano

parang di dun lang kami nagkakagulo gulo kasi di nga lahat naglilinis parang lang tas

ang ingay rin ng classroom dahil nga sa mga kalokohan ganun.


132

Nakakaadapt? Uhm naaadapt ko yung ano parang lalo pang mas maging friendly kasi

kada makakasalubong mo yung mga estudyante lalo na yung naganap na intrams

parang lalo kayong nagkakilala ng mga ka ano mo ka strand mo ibang strand na rin.

Uhm nakakaapekto siya kasi ano, bilang isang mag-aaral nakakaapekto siya

kapag ka ano andun na kayo sa point na di na rin tama yung pinaggagawa niyong

magkakaklase tas nagkakaron din kayo ng away sa mga teachers dahil nga sa di

pagkakaintindihan dahil sa kalokohan. Academic success, nakakaapekto sa academic

yung bigla bigla na lang mawawalan ng aircon sa sobrang init ng room lahat

magbubukas tapos yung ano yung mga tinuturo sayo naghahalo halo kasi nga tas di ka

makapagfocus kasi nga sobrang init tas ang iingay ang ingay pa ng environment yun.

Para sa akin yung pakikipagsalamuha sa teachers ng estudyante yung ano

naman di siya makakaapekto as long na parang may respeto kayo sa isa't isa sa

teachers din ganun din sa students pero makakaapekto naman siya kapag ka ano eh

nagkaroon nga lang kayo ng di pagkakaintindihan parang umover na yung ano ay

pagdating sa sa school makakaapekto yun kasi nga yung relationship nyo pala sa

teacher nyo tas kung di kayo okay parang maapektuhan na yung school din dun kayo

nag-aaral tapos dun din na kaano yung teacher nyo eh parang yun yung magiging

evaluation niya kung okay ba siya dito sa school na to. Yung pakikipag interact ko

naman sa mga fellow students dito sa Mystical uhm di naman siya nakakaapekto kasi

okay naman yung ano pakikisalamuha namin sa isa't isa wala pa namang gulong

nangyayari sa akin sa section or issue.


133

Ah gusto ko lang sabihin sa school administrators atsaka sa mga tulad ko rin na

estudyante na ano sana parang mas mapalinis pa yung facility natin para mas pa mag

ka mas mainclude yung relationship ng bawat estudyante dito kahit magkaiba yung

strand atsaka ano iimprove lang din yung mga ibang kulang sa facilities katulad nga ng

aircon, cubicles, pag dating sa mga groupings na ginagawa dito sa school ng by

section.
134

Co-Researcher H-------Ms. Prisoned Girl

I'm Prisoned Girl by the way, a student of Mystical Rose School of Caloocan that

took a strand of ABM. as a student we have subjects that are hard to do then uh...then

also, my classmates and I had a conflict when it comes to groupings, and also on the

uh major studies. As a student I show my care on my environment when it comes to

cleaning then uhm for example it's like you'll return the thing you borrowes on their

proper place like that.

The ideal school environment for me uh, it's okay even though it's small but uh,

just really the focus on studies then it's clean of course then the students have also

unity on that school then the facilities are good of course and the services given by the

school. Ideal school facilities uh, of course it's wide then uh then you have many places

to go to like there's a science laboratory anything just connected also on the studies

that will entice the students more then that's it, it's clean then when it comes to the

cubicles it's in order and it's not small then not dirty also and because it also affects the

students. Ideal teachers uh strict but you'll learn many from him or her and can get

along with his or her students that still have respect towards each other. Climate uh in

the ideal classroom uh our uh there has unity then uhm it's happy but when it comes to

studies it's serious and quiet like that.

The school environment here in our school I can see that uh uhm the facilities

uh it's too, no it's like it's not finished yet and when it comes on the C.R. hm...uh it's

like it's not good then the students who are inside the C.R. are always overcrowded

then the aircon especially...what's it called? The aircon uh it's like it's broken everyday
135

and it's like affecting my studies because it's so hot. What can I say on the school

facility uh its good when it comes on the library, science lab like that then the

classroom is also good then that's all. On my teachers uh they're the teachers who are

strict but can get along with you students and the respect is still there and then uh its

fun. Classroom, nosier and it's so fun in the room even though it's uh full of idiocy but

when it really comes to our class they're still participating.

What I think about my school environment uh they‘re okay I can see in the

environment of the school, the works given to the students are good and you'll also see

there the unity of all. In the school facilities, the uh it's good but when it really comes

on the equipment of the school it's like it's not enough like the aircons. What I think

about my teachers uh at first uh they're really strict then uh but when it's sort of a free

time, they're also joining our fun. In our classroom uh when it comes to our classroom

when you're really one of the cleaners it can't be clean no uh it's like we're only getting

misunderstandings when it comes to that because not all are cleaning it's only like then

the classroom is also noisy like that.

Adapt? Uhm I adapt the uh it's like being more friendly because whenever you

encounter students especially the intrams happened it's like you and the students with

the same strand got to know each other more.

Uhm...it's affecting because uh, it's affecting as a learner whenever uh you're at

the point where what you're doing with your classmates aren't night right anymore and

you also have disagreements with your teachers because of the misunderstandings that

are caused of idiocies. Academic success, it's affecting the academic success when the
136

aircon suddenly turns off and because of the hotness of the room all will be opened

then the ones that are being taught to you will fade because of that then and you can't

focus because of the hotness and the environment is also very noisy.

For me, interactions with the teachers with the students the uh it's not being

affected. For me, the interactions of the students with the teachers the uh it will not be

affected as long as it's like you have respect towards each other the same with the

teachers and the students but it will only be affected when uh you have

misunderstandings like it's over the oh when it comes to- to school it will be affecting

because your relationship with your teachers and if you both aren't okay it's like the

school will be affected too because that's where you're studying at then also the uh of

your teacher it's like it will serve as the evaluation of the teachers if they're good at this

school. My interactions with my fellow students here in Mystical uhm it's not really

affecting because our uh our interactions with each other are okay there's no trouble

happening yet to me, on my section or issue.

Oh, I just wanted to say to the school administrators and also to the students

like me uh I hope like the facilities will be cleaned more to uh to further include the

relationship of each student here even though the strands are different and uh improve

the the facilities that are still not sufficient like the aircon, cubicles, when it comes to

the groupings that are being done here in school by section.

Co-Researcher I-------Mr. Hawk Eye

I'm Hawk Eye and I'm 17 years old and I live in Caloocan and yung gusto ko lang

talaga ay simpleng pamumuhay yun lang. As a student, I am a grade 11 STEM

Bonifacio and as a STEM student, minsan mahirap talaga pero kinakaya ko parin naman

hanggang ngayon.

Yung school environment naman yung mga estudyante kasi kapag maganda

yung facilities sa isang school parang mas naiinganyo yung mga estudyanteng mag-aral

at saka makakapag-concentrate sila ng maayos. Para sa akin, mas gusto ko yung

facilities na merong parang halaman o kaya parang ganun may display na halaman.

Yung gusto ko namang teacher ano, gusto ko may pagmamahal parin siya sa kalikasan

yung parang mahalaga sa kanya yung kalikasan at saka malinis siya sa kapaligiran.Yung

ideal classroom, classmate ko naman yung gusto ko yung may pag ano siya may

pagpapahalaga siya sa kapaligiran at saka di siya sumasaway sa mga ano kunwari

nagtatapon ng basura ganon.

Yung sa school ng Mystical Rose School, yung sa mga facilities nila, malinis

naman yung mga kapaligiran pero para sa akin may kulang kasi walang naka- kahit

yung parang mga welcome plant, kahit mga ganon mas gusto ko yung ganon sa isang

facilities.Yung kagaya ng sinabi ko kanina yung sa teachers, gusto ko sa mga teachers

may parang pagmamahal sa kapaligiran. Yung malinis sila sa kapaligiran yung maayos

yung mga ganon. Sa classroom, syempre yung natural na yun sa classroom dapat na

malinis kasi kapag malinis din ang kapaligiran siyempre kapag nakikipag- nandun na

yung mga kaklase mo, siyempre magkakaroon kayo ng maayos na pag-uusap kasi…at
138

saka makapag-intindihan kayo kasi nga hindi magulo yung classroom niyo. Siyempre

yung gusto ko pa rin talaga din kagaya ng sinabi ko kanina ay mas gusto ko talaga

yung mga facilities na malinis at saka maayos yung mga nakapuwesto doon. Yung

teachers, siyempre yung gusto ko talaga sa mga teachers maalaga sa kapaligiran at

saka malinis at saka dahil sila rin naman ang magtuturo sa atin kung ano ang tama yun

lang. Sa classroom, yung napansin ko lang sa mga classroom dito sa Mystical Rose

maayos naman tignan at saka mukhang malinis naman.

Yung ginawa ko dito sa school para makapag adjust , ano siyempre sumunod

lang ako sa mga rules ng school na ito yun at saka hindi talaga ako sumaway sa mga-

kahit isang beses sa mga rules na iyon at saka hindi rin naman ako nahirapan sa pag

adapt ng mga rules ng school na ito.

Para sa akin, naapektuhan ako ng environment na kapag maingay, magulo,

nahihirapan akong masyadong...parang makaintindi kasi nga hindi ko masyadong

naintindihan kapag maingay at magulo. Sa academic success mas naiingayo ako kapag

ang school ano siya maayos at saka yung gusto laging on time yung mga nagtuturo

kagaya dito at saka mas gusto ko yung mas pinipressure kami ng mga teachers mga

ganon at mas gusto ko iyon kasi mas marami akong natututunan. As a student,

naapektuhan ako ng mga- sa mga teachers ko, sa mga estudyante na parang mas

marami pa akong nalaman sa mga persepsiyon ng aking mga guro at kamag-aral sa

isang school na magandang environment at facilities mga ganon.


139

Yung gusto ko lang sa mga yan siyempre dapat pahalagahan yung school na ito dahil

kami rin naman at tayo rin lang naman ang makikinabang sa school na ito at saka hindi

lang sa mga estudyante pati na rin sa mga administrators.


140

Co-Researcher I-------Hawk Eye

I'm Hawk Eye and I'm 17 years old. I live in Caloocan and what I really like is a

simple life, that's all. As a student, I'm a grade 11 STEM - Bonifacio and as a STEM

student, sometimes it's hard but I'm still going strong until now.

The school environment, the students, when the school facilities are good in a

school it's like the students will be more enticed on studying and they can concentrate

more properly. For me, I like it better when the facilities have more plants or like that,

there are plants displayed. The teacher that I like uh, I like when he or she still values

the nature like the nature is important for him or her and he or she is clean on her

surroundings. Ideal classroom, I want my classmate to have uh to have a care for the

surroundings and he or she's not disobeying on uh for example, on the trash, like that.

The school of Mystical Rose, their facilities, the surroundings are clean but for

me there's still missing because there's no-one even the like welcome plants, even,

even like those, I like those more in the facilities. Like what I've said earlier, the

teachers I like the teachers that has love for their surroundings. They're clean on their

surroundings; it's in order, like those. In classroom, of course it's already natural for the

classroom, it should be clean because when the surroundings are clean, of course when

you're talk- you're classmateare already there, of course you'll have a proper

conversation because...and then to understand each other because you're classroom

isn't messy. Of course, I still really want like what I've said earlier is I like it more when

the facilities are clean and the ones that are arranged in there are in order. The

teachers, of course, I like the teachers that are caring on their surroundings and clean
141

and also because they're also the ones who'll teach us what is right, that's all. In

classroom, what I've noticed in the classrooms of Mystical Rose, they're fine when you

look at them and they look like they're clean. What I did to adjust inside the school, uh

of course I followed the rules of the school and then I don't really disobey on the- even

a single time on those rules. For me, I'm affected by the environment when its noisy,

not in order, it's really hard for me...like to understand because I'm more enticed when

the school, it's a...in order and then I want my educator to be always on time like here

and then I like it more when teachers are pressuring us and I like it better because I

learn more.

As a student, I'm being affected by the- on my teachers, on the students like

I've learned more about the perceptions of my teachers and classmates in a school that

has a good environment and facilities like those.

What I only want on those, of course, importance must be given to this school

because we and us are also the ones who'll benefit from this school and not only

students but also the administrators.

Co-Researcher J-------Wushu

Uh…My name is Wushu. I'm 17 years old. I am from Grade 11 STEM-Rizal. Uh,

hin… hindi masyadong, hindi masyadong hihihe… hindi masyadong masipag pero nag-

aaral ng mabuti he.

Ayon, ah syemp… ano, mahalaga sa akin yung school environment kasi yung

environment na yun yung nagseset ng atmosphere kung paano mag-aaral yung isang

estudyante. Kapag pangit yung school environment, mas mahihirapan magfocus yung

mga estudyante and hindi sila masyadong makakapag-aral ng mabuti. For example,

mainit yung classroom, parang nakakairitable kapag nag-aaral, nakikinig hindi mo

mapapakinggan yung mga teacher kasi ang… pinagkakaabalahan mo ay paano pawa…

paano punasan yung pawis mo tsaka pagpapapay hehe… pagpapaypay sa sarili mo

ganon hehehe.

Ano, malinis tapos organize, yung mga activity syempre maganda rin yung

organize. Para sa 'kin kabilang na rin yun sa school environment kasi doon tumatakbo

yung buong araw ng estudyante. Para sa akin yung ideal school environment ay

malawak, tahimik, malayo sa kalsada na maririnig yung mga sasakyan o truck ng

basura. Malamig syempre, sabi ko nga kanina, nakakairitable kung mainit yung school.

Mali… ano… yun… malinis, yung hindi puro kalat sa paligid tapos ligtas syempre yung

walang mga naka… sa may… walang naka-expose na wire o yung mga

underconstruction pero dinadaanan ng mga estudyante, syempre pangit yun. Teachers,

para sa akin yung mga teachers, yung mga… yung mga stea… mga teacher, ideal

teacher para sa 'kin yung may concern sa bata hindi lang sa pag-aaral nila, mahalaga
143

kasi sa mga estudyante yung pinapakinggan din sila. Mas mahalaga din sa 'ming mga

estudyante yung teacher namin may konsiderasyon, ayun hihihi. Ideal classroom,

maliwanag kasi 'pag madilim mahirap mag-aral. Malamig, pero hindi to the point na…

oo, freezer na yung school classroom niyo.

Malinis, yung well-painted, ganon tapos kahit hindi naman bago yung mga

equipment o yung mga nakalagay dun basta functional tapos kagamit-gamit talaga.

School facilities is… ah… maganda yung mga school facility na kasya yung mga

estudyante. Yung ideal facility ko kasi, kunyare may 1,000 na estudyante sa school,

dapat yung 1,000 na estudyante na yun kahit na magkakaiba ng schedule kasya sila

dun sa… kasya sila dun sa… ah certain school facility tulad na lang ng library para… kasi

yung dito sa school pagkapasok ko ng library minsan wala ka ng mauupuan kasi lahat

occupied na and kung alam mo naman na maraming estudyante sa school niyo ba't

hindi mo dagdagan? ba't hindi mo lakihan?

Ah, hindi ko masasabing gusto ko yung school environment kasi una sa lahat

madaming estudyante dito eh, naghalo yung junior high school tsaka senior high

school. So, feeling ko thousands din kami dito and hallway pa lang medyo masikip na,

na kapag bababa yung mga estudyante nagsisiksikan na. Yung stairs, ilang beses akong

nahulog sa hagdan, promise seryoso yun… nahu… nahulog ako sa hagdan hindi dahil sa

ka-clumsy-han ko, hindi sa katangahan, siguro problema ng stair yun hinulog niya ko,

charot. Ilang beses talaga akong nahulog sa hagdan and yung parang ramp yung

parang ganun sa stairs parang maganda rin na…harangan nila kung delikado talaga

pero as a student na nagmamadaling bumaba tas ang daming nakapila siguro


144

kaylangan ng mas mawalawak na stairs ayun.Tapos ano.. ano okay lang pero minsan

kasi yung ibang teacher walang pake minsan kasi diba sabi keep right pero kasi minsan

yung teacher yung lumalabag sa keep right tapos magagalit pa pagnabangga mo diba?

ang saya haha tapos ano parang ano.. well discipline naman yung karamihan ng mga

teachers may mga piling teachers na parang wala silang pakielam sa paligid nila may

mga teachers na nagsasabi pagmadumi yung classroom oy yung kalat niyo syempre

lilinisin agad namin yung ibang mga teachers ano parang wala lang silang pakielam sa

environment sa kapaligiran nila basta makapasok lang sila ayun. Free trial to hell free

trial sa impyerno una sa lahat ang ganda ng aircon nagfufunction ba ng maayos, hindi

okay sobrang inet may times na bigla na lang papatayin yung kuryente like hello isang

oras pa yata kami dito dalawang oras patay na yung kuryente nagtitipid ba kayo?Haha

like pwede niyo naman iextend yung time ng pag ano ng kuryente diba? And yung ilaw

dim pala dito like ang hirap magbasa yung siguro position ng lightning o yung ilaw

mismo pero ang dilim sa classroom sobrang inet sa tingin mo yung dalawang electricfan

na yan mapapalamig yung 50, 45 na estudyante sa isang classroom? Hindi, pawis na

pawis na kami kawawa naman yung ibang ano..kasi sa classroom namin kung sino yung

pinakamalapit sa aircon sila lang yung nalalamigan ang pinaka malayo sa aircon men

ewan ko kung isang linggo o pagdating naming sira na yan, pero sira agad yung tiles eh

ewan ko kung anong meron, problema ng tiles ng school na to puro sira

minadali…minadali lang ata at wag niyong idadahilan na engineer yan ganinto

ganyan..anyan gumawa niyan delikado pa rin kasi talaga sa estudyante kahit sabihin

nating classroom lang ang dami paring wire na ahh… ang daming wire na nakaexpose,

ang daming tubong nakaexpose hindi siya hahaha..and ano tawag dito...sa room

naming and dalis.. and bilis matanggal ng… ng paint alam mo yung tinape-pan lang

namin saglit pagtanggal mo wala a yung paint tapos pinapabayaran kami oh diba ang

saya sya problema yan ng school kung bakit pangit na pintura yung binili nila ,bumili

sila ng mahal pero tatagal.

Paano ako nakaadapt? Hindi pa ako masyaodong komportable dito sa school na

to sinasabi ko lang ahh..kasi pagpasok namin dito, alam mo yun…ang daming etong

building na to ginagawa pa lang pero pinapasok na kami kahit na ang daming ahh…

alam mo yun..yung hagdanan jan di pa tapos yan dadaan na kami pwede naman

harangan sabihin may disiplina o wala yung mga estudyante dito ahh.. ano niyo yan

eh…responsibilidad niyo yan para ano…ano panatilihing ligtas yung estudyante. Katulad

na lang ng court alam mo yun yung likod nun pwede nyo bng takpan na kasi baka

tumalon ako dun eh hahaha…and ang hirap magadapt sa school environment na…

kahit bago pa lang kami dito alam na naming na delikado, maganda man siya sa labas,
150

pagpasok mo sa loob makikita mo na may mali talaga and mahi…mahirap i-adapt eh

kasi ano…tawag dito? Pano ka makkaadapt sa environment na hindi ligtas,diba? Kahit

na magingat ka di yan maiiwasan ganun.

Ang laki ng epekto sa ‗kin ng school environment kasi ano eh…pano kapag

sobrang tagal… lam mo yun..ahh…time 4th floor to elevator naman dyan oh charot

haha… I mean ano yung C.R. anuhin ilo-lock ilang oras…minu…minuto din pababa pano

pag natatae pala ako diba ang tagal nun tapos alam mo yun di naman sa parang yung

environment siguro nakakaapekto kung bakit medyo nawawalan ako ng gana mag-aral

kasi nakakatamad na lang sabihin na…maganda nga yung school pangit naman,

magnda nga magturo yung mga teacher parang yung environment talaga ang laki ng

epekto eh. Ang init sa room nakakatamad gusto ko matulog lagi,promise alam mo yun

ganun. Ayun nga, bumababa yung grades ko kasi nakakairita yung room…as in

nakakairita pinagpapawisan na nga ako nga habang iniinterview ako nakatapat…ang

lapit ko sa aircon, promise ang lapit ko sa aircon pinagpapawisan na ako pawis na yung

kili-kili ko parang alam mo yun pasamado pa naman yng kamay ko so, pano…ano basa

yung ginagawa ko…uulitin ko na naman oh diba naubusan ng time 5 minutes lang pala

yung binigay na time oh diba tapos na lahat ako nagsusulat pa rin mahirap talaga eh…

ang hirap tapos yung ibang na...naaksidente ilang araw din silang ano…absent

nakakaapekto yun sa pag-aaral nila yun hihihi….

Syempre naman teacher and students affect my perception in my environment

as a student because mlaki yung impact ng…ng ano… ng teachers because sila yung

yung ano…sila yung mas nakakaalam sa pasikut sikot ditto sa school kasi teachers nga
151

sila eh and ang dami nilang kinukwento saamin na kaylangan kaming mag-ingat dahil

nga sa hazard sa school and sa mga estudyante naman syempre own experience nila

yung eh di naman pwedeng icontradict yung mga experience na nararanasan nila

syempre kapag may kinuwento nga sila katulad nga nung sinabi ko kanina may

nasugatan dahil sa nahulog na tiles diba sinong hindi mababahala sa ah…insidenteng

yun syempre maniniwala kami dun palang parang… kahit di naman nila sabihin yun

pangit talaga environment ng school hahaha….ang pangit ng environment dito. Makinig

kayo hahaha…gusto ko lang sabihin na takot ako sa school niyo ah, ang ganda sa labas

nag-indorse pa naman ako kahapon lang to ah… tatlong estudyante, uy mag-aral kayo

dito ganinto ganyan di ko.. di ko na nga lang sinabi sakanila na delikado dito dami pang

pinapaayos eh gusto ko lang sabihin na ano…e-off limits niyo sa mga estdyante yung

mga dapat hindi namin pinapasukan kasi walang naman nakalagay na bawal pumasok

dito, papasok kami tapos papagalitan niyo kami atsaka yung mga ano dyan…yung mga

expose na wire takpan niyo naman mamaya anong manyari jan tapos yung ano alam

mo yun pwede bang wag niyo agad tanggalin yung kuryente ang init sa room tapos

wag niyo rin tatanggalin yung tubig ha…tapos kayo pa magagalit kapag di binuhusan

yung ihi hah…hahaha charot hahahaha…ayun, gusto ko rin sabihin sa mga estudyante

na mag-ingat kayo kasi,mag-ingat kayo delikado sa school.

Gusto ko lang din sabihin sa school administrator na…wag ano...kahit matagal

yung proseso ng pagconstruct ng building or ng mga facilities wag niyo madaliin kasi

para sa kapahamakan ng estudyante yan at para sa pangalan ng school wag lang kayo

indorse ng indorse,advertise ng advertise na maganda yung school niyo maganda yung


152

pagtuturo atsaka maganda yung facilities, kung di naman ligtas sino gusto mag-aral

dyan?

Co-Researcher J-------Wushu

Uh…my name is Wushu. I‘m 17 years old. I am from Grade 11 STEM-Rizal. Ah, I-

I‘m not too, I‘m not too hihihe… not too industrious but I take care of my studies he.

There, ah of cour… uh, the school environment is important to me because that

environment sets the atmosphere on how the students study. If the school environment

is bad, the students will have a hard time to focus and they will not perform so well on

their studies. For example, if the classroom is too hot, it‘s like irritating when studying,

you hear what the teacher says but can‘t listen because it‘s… you‘re busy on how you…

how you wipe your sweat and fanning hehe… fanning yourself yeah hehehe. Uh, clean

and organized, the activities are better if it‘s organized. For me, it‘s also part of the

school environment because it is where a student‘s whole day runs.

For me an ideal school environment is spacious, quiet, far from the road where

you hear the vehicles and garbage trucks. Cool of course, as I‘ve said earlier, it‘s

irritating if the school is hot. Wrong… uh… that… clean, the surroundings are not full of

litter and safe of course, that have no… where… there are no exposed wires or the

under construction areas where students pass by, those are bad. Teachers, for me

teachers, are those… those tea… the teachers, ideal teacher for me is the one that has

concern to the child, not only with their studies, it‘s important for the students to be

listened to. It‘s also more important to us students that our teacher has consideration,

yeah hihihi. Ideal classroom, well-lit because when it‘s dark, it‘s hard to study. Cool, but

not to the point where… yeah, your school classroom‘s a freezer. Clean, well-painted,

like that, even if the equipment‘s not new or the things put there are functional and
154

really useable. School facilities are… ah… a school facility that fits the students is good.

My ideal facility is, fro example there are 1,000 students in the school, the 1,000

students should have different schedules to fit in the…fit in the…uh certain school

facility like the library so… because here at school, sometimes when I enter the library

there are no vacant seats because it‘s occupied already and if you know that there are

a lot of students in the school, why not add more? Why not expand? Ah, I can‘t say that

I like the school environment because first of all there are a lot of students here, the

junior high and senior high are mixed. So, I feel like we are thousands here and even

the hallway is narrow already, that when the students go downstairs, they are crowded.

The stairs, I fell down the stairs for multiple times, promise it‘s serious… I fe… I fell

down the stairs not because of my clumsiness, not because of stupidity; maybe it‘s just

the stairs‘ problem that I fall, just kidding. I really fell down the stairs multiple times

and the like the ramp in the stairs I think it's better ... that they block it if it's really

dangerous but as a students who hurries downstairs and many are in line maybe the

stairs need to be wide, yeah. And uh... uh it's okay but sometimes other teachers don't

care sometimes because they say keep right but sometimes the teachers disobey the

'keep right' then they'll get mad when you bump into them right? Funny haha then uh

like uh... well most teachers are disciplined but some like don't care about the

surroundings, somye teachers say when the classroom is messy:"Hey, your mess!" Of

course we'll clean it right away. Some teachers uh it‘s like they don‘t care about the

environment, their surroundings, as long as they just simply go there. Free trial to hell.

First of all, the aircon‘s good, is it functioning well? It‘s not okay, it‘s too hot and at
155

times they just turn off the electricity all of a sudden like hello? We‘re still going to stay

here for one hour or two hours but the electricity‘s already off, are you conserving

energy? Haha like you can extend the time of uh of the electricity right? And the lights

are actually dim here like it‘s hard to read, maybe the position of the lighting or lights

itself but it‘s so dark in the classroom and it‘s so hot. You think that two electric fans

there can cool the 50, 45 students in a classroom? No, our bodies are so sweaty here,

others uh are pitiful… because in our classroom, whoever is near the aircon, they‘re the

only ones that experience the coldness, the farthest ones to the aircon men they‘re so

sweaty there. Me, I got sick, seriously ah…because of too much sweat the… Of course

will you prioritize wiping your sweat? Of course we‘re already in senior high school eh

we‘re already senior high, we want to always listen, grade conscious, I don‘t… I don‘t

think too much about sweating or if my clothes are soaked, I just listen and uh…I‘m a

sweaty person and I‘m at the farthest seat of uh… First sem I was at the farthest at the

room, it‘s so hot and sometimes it gets too much hot hmm… I don‘t know why the floor

gets wet maybe I don‘t know what it is and uh what can you do? And sometimes the

pipes are too exposed that we can play with it, let‘s just say we don‘t have discipline

but whether we have discipline or not, the temptation is still there promise and ahh…

what else? Ah… yeah the whiteboard easily gets damaged as in it can be torn off easily

like that the whiteboard‘s damaged, we don‘t know how to repair that but it‘s nearly

giving up, maybe because of the materials used or the time when it was made or the

problem that it‘s getting broken already yeah haha. Yeah, near our classroom was the

cr with the exposed tubes and there‘s a tube that leaks, the front of our room is always
156

wet because there‘s water dripping where we don‘t know what to do and there‘s a time

that our airson drips men, our aircon is pisssing, our room is wet and the uh don‘t care

ahh… the maintenance, the heck hahaha seriously. It‘s school facilities already, the

canteen… sometimes when we go downstairs there‘s no more seats available eh you

there‘s one time that, it only happened one time but it still happened, all of us in our

section sat on the floor because there‘s no more seats… there‘s no more tables, and no

chairs and we sat on the floor, the other students were looking at us, we didn‘t care

because we just we already wanted to eat. The canteen, for me, needs to add more

seats and tables because because in the room… because it‘s not allowed to eat inside

our room eh one mistake of the school is they let the students eat inside their room

because it‘s gonna stink when someone ate inside, it‘s all closed and air-conditioned

and you‘ll eat, let‘s just say bagoong… you have bagoong okay it‘s gonna smell inside

the room, you have vinegar okay the room‘s gonna smell like vinegar and yeah

sometimes uh the… cr sometimes doesn‘t have water, what if someone needs to poop?

How do I flush that? You know that? And the water‘s suddenly gone and we get

scolded that we don‘t flush our urine heler where‘s the water alright alright, you know it

when we were at the fourth floor it suddenly gets locked… the C.R. suddenly gets

locked, okay we‘ll pee at the first floor, we piss our shorts already then the cr is locked

right? The library the uh it lacks books, what‘s that? What… what is that? Reader‘s

digest magazines okay, what will we do with that? Okay tell us what we‘ll do with that?

How about the textbooks that we need like ahh… those… for accounting, for reading

and writing, those kinds of books are not there like… like what is the library for if it‘s
157

seldom used, although we use it for research, some books there are lacked by the

library, what do you call this… the… yeah the seats, the library is spacious, you can add

more tables and chairs so we don‘t have to stand up while reading right? And I just

want to say that it‘s pricey to print at the library ah..of the librarian, if only I had a

printing business, I‘ll be rich, I‘ll only charge them one peso because it only costs one

peso at our place eh haha. What else? The faculty of teachers, why is it so crowded?

I‘m not a teacher but I can feel the struggle ah hello to their uh table, it‘s one table,

that‘s still a lot of teachers but the uh is too small… the table is too small and what, the

ones with uh higher positions get a special treatment? You‘re too much, the teachers

suffer, their stuff might get lost and you‘ll blame. I just want to say too that your

building are separate, it‘s too far, don‘t complain that the teacher comes in late because

from Sampaguita to Doña Helen okay whatever. What else with the school facilities?

Ahmm… your clinic ah, I was rushed to the clinic a few times , two beds, and then it‘s

occupied so they didn‘t let me in, okay where would I sleep? My head hurts so much,

my stomach hurts so much too, there‘s no medicine, they made me buy it outside

hay..mygosh hihi.. but seriously my uh was attacking… uh my ulcer. I went downstairs,

my stomach hurts so much, 4th floor and the clinic is on the 1st floor, when I came

there ―Oh, sorry there‘s already two occupying the beds, go back to your room‖. ―Do

you have medicine?‖ ―Ah sorry dear, just buy outside‖ hay… I don‘t know what‘s the

problem of the school, the teaching is great but the facilities really men there‘s

something missing eh students even endorse this school for me to study at. It‘s bad ah

haha… it has good uh, teaching but the environment itself? Why‘s it like that? You know
158

that? Not that we‘re asking for special treatment but it nee… it‘s nice… but the aircon

really is my problem eh, the environment affects the student‘s studies because… almost

8 hours, 7 hours are spent by a student, if his day at school is not good, if the school

facilities are not good, the school environment‘s not good, then the child will have

trouble focusing. What if this is broken, what if that‘s broken… we have trouble… we

have trouble using what we should use ahm… like the lib…library, we need to go to

different libraries ahh… also buy books just for… just so we can use it for school.

Hmm… in the C.R. of course, we don‘t have time then does the cr still need to be

locked? We‘ll go down to the 1st floor, when we get there, we don‘t know what our

teacher is discussing and what do you call this… if the student feels unwell already, it‘s

overlooked because the beds are only two at the clinic then the clinician is fixed on the

phone, you know that? And what else… the lab is nice but multiple times we, multiple

times we uh there, that… the tiles suddenly fell, I heard that someone was wounded

and rushed to the clinic, us too, got hurt there… it suddenly fell, good thing that my

classmate has quick reflexes, his foot oh boogsh… he quickly removed it… you know

what the lab‘s really nice eh but it was rushed, you know it when you have the fund but

because you want to finish fast you‘ll rush it, it‘s good at first but when it‘s used

already, it‘s actually dangerous and uhhh… I‘m thankful of DRRR…because our teacher

uh… I remember we were tasked to look for hazards at school, we discovered a lot of

hazards and it‘s worrysome for the… school committee because ehem…ahm… there‘s a

lot of uh a lot of possi…possibility that students will get inot an accident, it‘s not only for

the student‘s sake eh for uh eh… it‘s for the school‘s name. What if there‘s news that
159

someone died on that school or someone is injured badly? The school will be ruined eh.

Uh hmm… overall if I generalize it, the teachers are good eh because they have

concern on the students in… the teachers know the risk of hazards present at the

school and they know… they really care about their students. Maybe the higher ones

are those we need to talk to because they don‘t listen to us hihihi…hay mygosh ahh… if

I uh ahm… our room‘s really not good eh, even if you say at first glance it‘s nice but

when you use it, nah hihihi… ‗cause it‘s not uh hihihi… the tiles that barely lasted a

week and already broke, promise ah I don‘t know if it was one week or when we came

it‘s broken, but the tiles are already broken eh I don‘t know what‘s up, the problem with

this school‘s tiles is that they‘re all rushed…maybe it was just rushed, and don‘t reason

out the engineer, it‘s this, it‘s that…there, the one who made it, it‘s still dangerous for

the students even if you say it‘s just a classroom, there‘s lots of wire that ahh… a lot of

wires are exposed, a lot of tubes are exposed, it‘s not haha… and what do you call

this… in our our it‘s quick… it‘s quick to be removed… the paint, you know what, when

we just taped it shortly, when we removed it, the paint was gone, then they make us

pay for it, see? It‘s the school‘s problem why the paint they bought was bad, they

should‘ve bought the expensive but long-lasting.

How I adapt? I‘m not too comfortable here at this school, I‘m just saying uh… because

when we came here, you know that… there‘s many in this building that‘s still being

constructed but they made us go even though there‘s a lot ahh… you know it… the

stairs there are not finished, we‘re already gonna pass, it can be blocked, say the

students do and don‘t have discipline here ah… its your uh eh… it‘s your responsibility
160

to uh… uh make sure the students are safe. Just like the court, you know that, the back

of it, can you block it already ‗cause I might jump there eh hahaha… and it‘s hard to

adapt to the school environment that‘s… even if we‘re new here, we know that it‘s

dangerous, it‘s nice on the outside but when you go inside you‘ll see that‘s there‘s really

something wrong and it‘s ha… hard to adapt because uh… what do you call this? How

can you adapt to an environment that isn‘t safe, right? Even if you‘ll be careful, you

can‘t avoid it. The school environment has a major impact on me because uh… what if

it‘s too time-consuming… you know… ahh… time, elevator to the 4th floor please? Oh

just kidding haha… I mean uh the C.R. uh, it‘s lock a few hours… minu… minutes, it

takes to go downstairs, what if I actually need to poop, eh it takes long, and you know

it, not that like, maybe the environment affects why I lose interest in studying because

I get lazy to say that… the school is nice, but it‘s bad, the teachers‘ lectures are good

but, it‘s like the environment really affects. It‘s so hot in the classroom, I get lazy to

study, and I want to sleep always, promise you know that? Yeah. There, my grades are

getting low because the room is agitating… as in it‘s agitating that I‘m sweating while

interviewing… I was near the aircon, promise I was near the aircon, I was sweating,

and my armpits were sweating, like, you know that, my hands are even sweaty so,

how… uh what I‘m doing is wet… I‘ll do it again oh right, the time ran out, the given

time is only 5 minutes oh right, everyone‘s done but I‘m still writing, it‘s really hard eh…

it‘s hard and others that… got an accident, for a few days they were uh…absent, it

affects their studies hihihi…


161

Of course teachers and students affect my perception in my environment as a

student because there‘s great impact by uh… of uh… of teachers because they um um,

uh… they know their way around this school they‘re teachers eh and they tell us a lot of

stories that we should be careful because of the school‘s hazards and on the students,

because of course it‘s their own experience, you can‘t contradict with the experiences

they went through, of course when they tell you something like I said, someone was

wounded because the tiles fell, see who wouldn‘t worry on ah… that incident, of course

we‘ll believe that like… even if they don‘t say, the environment is really bad hahaha…

the environment here is bad.

Listen hahaha… I just want to say that I‘m scared of your school ah, it‘s nice on

the outside, yesterday, I even endorse outside… three students, ―Hey, study here it‘s

this and that, I just… I just didn‘t tell them that it‘s dangerous here, there‘s still a lot

getting fixed eh, I just want to say that ah… make it off limits for the students, the

areas that we shouldn‘t enter, because there‘s nothing that says you can‘t go here, we‘ll

go there and you‘ll scold us and the ones there uh… the exposed wires, cover them at

least, you don‘t know what‘ll happen there and the uh, you know that, can you not just

remove the electricity? It‘s hot inside the room then don‘t remove the water ha… then

you‘ll get mad when the urine wasn‘t flushed hah… hahaha just kidding

hahahaha…yeah, I also want to say to the students to take care because, take care

because it‘s dangerous at school. I also just want to say to the school administrator

that… don‘t uh…even if the process is long to construct the building or the facilities,

don‘t rush it because it‘s for the good of the students and for the name of the school,
162

don‘t just endorse and endorse, advertise and advertise that you school is nice, the

teaching is nice amd the facilities are nice, if it‘s not safe, who would want to study

there?
163

RESEARCHERS’ EXPERIENCES

The researchers thought that it was a journey full of hardships and hindrances

that honed them through achieving their goal. They were quite nervous on doing such

thing since it was their first time to conduct a qualitative research. They had a hard

time on coming up with a research title because whenever they do, it‘s either taken or

not suitable for a qualitative research. They found out that all of their classmates were

planning to conduct a descriptive research so they decided to do something different

which was exploratory research.

The researchers didn‘t find it difficult to find their co-researchers since they have

many connections with the other students and there were many grade 11 students in

their building alone.To get more co-researchers, the researchers went to another

building, which was the Sampaguita Building, and roamed around. The part of

conducting an interview was a bit tiring since our research design was exploratory

research so we needed to something to get the answers that we were looking for. They

were lucky because their co-researchers were not hard to convince on being

interviewed. In fact, they were just cool with it.

The co-researchers were interviewed after their class hours so that they won‘t

be interrupted during their time of studying. The researchers had a good time

interviewing their co-researchers not just because they met a few of their students and

interacted with them but also they learned a lot about their co-researchers‘ perceptions

about their school environment and brought their knowledge into a broader manner.

Listening to them was really a great experience since it consisted of exploring your
164

school environment. Some of their co-researchers didn‘t understand one or two

questions at first but thankfully they did and answered it well after the researchers

explained it.

The noise made the transcribing process a little hard because the researchers

can‘t understand some parts that easily especially when the answers of the co-

researchers were long. Translating the responses of the co-researchers in English was

hard and took a lot of time because they were in the form of Filipino Language. Even

though their answers were good, there were still some parts that were cut off or have a

lot of transition. It was a good thing that they were able to do it because most of them

were not that good in English.

The analysis of qualitative research data gave the researchers a really hard time

since they had to re-read their co-researchers‘ responses a lot of times to construct

suitable themes for them. They took a large amount of time doing it. It really brought

the researchers in a wider perspective of their school environment since they had a lot

of point of views from their co-researchers.


165

RESEARCHERS’ REFLECTION

The following themes arised from the rigorous analysis of the gathered data and

they were supported with direct quotations from the co-researchers.

1. Salient. A school is an institution for educating people. School helps us to

unleash our skills and to improve our abilities. Most of the co-researchers‘ stated

how they see their school as a place where they can be honed.

Co-Researcher A shared how he sees his school environment and said that Ano, ah,

kailangan na ‗yong ano para sa isang learner, ang school environment ah dapat ah,

paano ba? Dapat ‗yong school environment holistic siya parang gano‘n para, kasi ‗yong

surroundings natin ‗di ba na, parang dumedepende ‗yong stu—learner sa kung paano

siya mag-adapt ng knowledge sa environment niya. Kunyare ah, ‗yong bata ano, 3

years old na bata paano siya matututo kung sa isang lugar lang siya. Kailangan ilabas

siya ng environment para may matutunan siya kasi kapag ka naka-contain ang bata sa

isang lugar ah, parang ‗yon lang ‗yong natututunan niya, parang… narrow-minded ang

bata. Kapagka nilak – nilabas siya magiging ano siya ah, magiging mas deep ang

knowledge about things. [Well, uh, it is needed for uh for a learner, the school

environment should ah, how's it? The school environment should be holistic like that so

that, because our surroundings are, it's like the stu-learner depends on how he or she

adapts knowledge on his or her environment. Let's assume uh, the kid is, a 3 year old

kid, how he or she can learn if he or she's only at one place. He or she is needed to be

expose outside the environment to learn because when he or she is only at one place
166

ah, it's like that's only what he or she learns, it's like...the kid is narrow-minded. When

you show him or her around, he or she will become uh, he or she will have deeper

knowledge about things, yeah just like that.]

Co-Researcher F and Co-Researcher H said that they appreciate their school

environment by following its rules and regulations and keeping it clean. Co-

Researcher F said that Sumusunod ako sa school and regulations ng school lahat ng

bawal sinusunod ko di ko ginagawa yung mga dapat na hindi uhm may- may respeto

ako sa mga teachers then pag may nakikita akong kalat na di ano wala sa tamang

basurahan tinatapon ko. [I'm following the school and the school's rules and regulations

all of the things that aren't allowed I follow it I don't do what shouldn't be done uhm I-

I have respect for the teachers and whenever I see a trash that uh not in its proper

disposal I dispose it]. This is similar to what Co-Researcher H have said, Bilang isang

mag-aaral pinapakita ko yung care ko sa environment ko pagdating pa lang din sa

paglilinis. [As a student I show my care on my environment when it comes to cleaning

then uhm for example it's like you'll return the thing you borrows on their proper place

like that].

Co-Researcher J expounded that a school environment helps in setting the student‘s

way of learning. Mahalaga sa akin yung school environment kasi yung environment na

yun yung nagseset ng atmosphere kung paano mag-aaral yung isang estudyante.

Kapag pangit yung school environment, mas mahihirapan magfocus yung mga

estudyante and hindi sila masyadong makakapag-aral ng mabuti. [There, ah of cour…

uh, the school environment is important to me because that environment sets the
167

atmosphere on how the students study. If the school environment is bad, the students

will have a hard time to focus and they will not perform so well on their studies.]

According to Glewwe et al. (2011), School facilities serve as settings of learning

for children and are shown beyond doubt to have an essential effect on education

outcomes mainly in developing countries. Moreover, as stated by Halim et al., (2010),

the study also revealed that there is a relationship between the learning environment

with students in terms of their achievement, satisfaction, comfort, health and

enjoyment.

2. Directly Proportional. A school environment has its great impact on the

learning of each student. The learning environment may either pull the academic

success of students or raise it up to its peak. The co-researcher‘s stated that the

school environment where they belong plays a crucial part for them as a learner

of an institution.

Co-Researcher A stated how school environment and students are related. Ayon nga

kasi, ‗yong school environment parang ano siya eh, directly proportional sa learner'di

ba? Kapagka maganda'yong school environment mo, maganda rin yung ano... 'yong

positive effect din 'yong mangyayari non sa... student. [Ayo‘n nga kasi ‗yong school

environment parang ano siya eh, directly proportional sa learner ‗di ba? Kapagka

maganda ‗yong school environment mo, maganda rin ‗yon ano, ‗yong… positive effect

din ‗yong mangyayari no‘n sa… student].


168

Co-researcher B talked about school management. Yung environment ng school

naten nakakaapekto talaga yun sapag... ano... pag-aaral naten, so... kapag maganda

yung ano, as in pagpapatakbo... lahat na. Mas matututo at madali na yung flow...

[The environment of our school really affects the. Uh… the… our studies, so… If there‘s

a nice uh, management… All, and then… it‘s appreciated by the s- the students,

because it‘s more… they‘re uh, they‘ll learn better, it‘s easier to… the flow of lessons.]

Co-Researcher C, Co-Researcher E and Co-Researcher F shared how does it

affect their academic success. Co-Researcher C said, ...nakatulong siya para sa akin

as an- an achiever ng section namin. [that sort of helped for uh...it helped me as an- an

achiever of our section]. Co-Researcher E and Co-Researcher G shared how did

their grades improved. Co-Researcher F said, may nagbago rin sa grades ko mas

medyo mas tumaas siya kaysa nung dati kasi yun nga mga nakinig ako ngayon kaysa

dati. [For me the results will make me learn more and my grades higher]. And Co-

Researcher E also said, tumaas naman grades ko kaysa dati. [my grades changed,

they increased compared to the previous ones].

In contrary, Co-Researcher I stated that he is distracted when itcomes to

environment. Naapektuhan ako ng environment kapag maingay, magulo, nahihirapan

akong masyadong... parang makaintindi kasi nga hindi ko masyadong naintindihan

kapag maingay at magulo. [For me, I'm affected by the environment when its noisy,

not in order, it's really hard for me...like to understand because I'm more enticed when

the school, it's a...in order].


169

According to Fothergrill (2016), students who learnt in a positive School

Environment do better on their academic success. It just implies that the school

environment is a vital part for the success of the students in school.

3. Clean is Green. A decent and pleasing environment is that with less clutter and

consists of plants. There is a psychological effect concerning an environment free

of mess and has a relaxing vibe due to nature. Nature creates an effect of

relazation for people.

Co-Researcher H told us his ideal school environment.Yung ideal school environment

para sakin ano, yung okay lang siya kahit na maliit pero ano,yung focus lang in talaga

sa pag-aaral tapos yung malinis syempre[The ideal school environment for me uh, it's

okay even though it's small but uh, just really the focus on studies then it's clean of

course]. ‗Co-Researcher I also stated that, para sa akin, mas gusto ko yung facilities

na merong parang halaman o kaya parang ganun may display na halaman.[For me, I

like it better when the facilities have more plants or like that, there are plants

displayed.]

Co-Researcher C also added that plants and trees will help the students to freshen

up. So yung ideal na ano environment ng school sakin is more on parang ano siya, hindi

naman siya basta puro classrooms then ano...kung ano, parang may puno-

puno...parang ano, kase diba yung mga puno parang ano siya...nakakapagrefresh siya

so kapag syempre stressful yung school days ngayon lalo na't paend na yung school

year para ano...makakatulong yun sakin as a learner para medyo marefresh yung mind

ko habang pag pahinga lang ng onti ganon.[So, the ideal uh, environment of school for
170

me is more on it's like, it's not concentrated with just classrooms then uh...if uh...it's

like there are trees...it's like, because the trees are... they're like...they're refreshing so

of course school days are stressful right nowespecially the school year will end soon so

it's like...it will help me as a learner to refresh my mind while taking a little rest, like

that.]

4. Pedagogic Strategy and Parent-like Educators.The way teachers deal with

their students, and the way they establish an impression, builds the learner‘s

point of view. Teachers also have a role to hone their students and relate to the

emotionally.

Co-Researcher H said his ideal teacher, Ideal teachers uhm feel ko masungit uhm ide

ideal teachers medyo masungit kasi para mas ma mabawasan yung pagiging makulit ko

sa classroom. [Ideal teachers uhm ide ideal teachers, kind of strict to decrease my

naughtiness in the classroom.]

Co-Researcher J explained his own ideals on a teacher. Ideal teacher para sa 'kin

yung may concern sa bata hindi lang sa pag-aaral nila, mahalaga kasi sa mga

estudyante yung pinapakinggan din sila. Mas mahalaga din sa 'ming mga estudyante

yung teacher namin may konsiderasyon, ayun hihihi. [Teachers, for me teachers, are

those… those tea… the teachers, ideal teacher for me is the one that has concern to the

child, not only with their studies, it‘s important for the students to be listened to. It‘s

also more important to us students that our teacher has consideration, yeah hihihi.]
171

According to Cummins and Corbis (2017), components in education have a

higher influence on the educational experiences of a student with a caring relationship

with his or her teacher. Moreover, as said by Gehlbach et al., (2012), the teachers of

the students who regard them as their supporters have greater success outcomes.

5. Well-Ventilated and Organized Classroom. An environment that is messy

has an outward effect on learners. If the classroom lacks organization, it is more

likely that the students struggle to focus. Noise can be a distraction in academic

performance, while the general feel of the classroom (temperature) can

contribute either to a positive or negative performance of students.

Co-Researcher G and Co-Researcher A describe their ideal classroom

situation. Co-Researcher G said, Actually dito sa classroom parang gusto ko kasi ano

hindi ganun ka kaingay kasi sa classroom namin sobrang ingay eh parang mainit sobra

parang gusto ko yung medyo tama lang yung alam nila kung san sila lulugar. [Actually

here in our classroom it's like what I want is that uh it's not that noisy becauaw our

classroom is very noisy it's like it's really hot uh I sort of want it to be a little more quiet

wherein they know their limitations.] And Co-Researcher A also stated that, Yong

kapagka ano, ang gusto ko kasi kapagka nag-aaral talaga, ‗yong discussion, tahimik

lang. Kasi para ano, para ‗yong… knowledge input nang input agad sa ano… sa utak.

Kasi kapagka maingay ‗di ba maraming ano maingay surroundings ‗di, iba ‗yong… iba

‗yong pumapasok sa isip mo sabay-sabay ‗yon na papasok ‗di ba?Parang matatabunan

‗yong ano, knowledge.Kunyare, ingay – knowledge – ingay – knowledge – knowledge –

knowledge – ingay parang gano‘n. [When uh, what I want is when I'm really studying,
172

the discussion, it's quiet. To uh, it's like...inputing knowledge right away...in mind.

Because when it's noisy, when uh many are noisy, surroundings, isn't it the...the ones

you that your brain absorbs are different, your brain is processing mixed info right? It's

like the uh...knowledge will be covered up. For example, noise- knowledge- noise-

knowledge- knowledge- knowledge- noise like that].

Co-Researcher E and Co-Researcher F stated their ideals when it comes to

classroom and facilities. Co-Researcher E said Uhm…ideal school facilities naman

uhm…syempre malamig yung classroom. [Uhm… about ideal school facilities uhm… of

course the classroom is cool]. Co-Researcher F stated that About sa classroom

climate gusto ko yung classroom climate namin ano climate for me ideal para sakin 18

degree celcius. [About the classrooom climate I want our classroon climate to be uh

climate for me, 18 degree celcius is ideal for me].

Indoor air quality is also a problem due to the fact that low air quality highly

causes absenteeism for students with asthma. There‘s also an indication that many

schools experience ―sick building syndrome‖ which impacts the absenteeism and

execution of all students. Therefore, viruses, bacteria, and allergens that contribute to

childhood disease are mostly found in schools that have low quality of ventilation

systems. Indoor pollutants are also released from office apparatus, flooring

paraphernalia, paint, adhesives, cleaning products, pesticides, and insects. Children

particularly in schools with poor ventilation systems can be affected by these

environmental hazards (PennState, 2015). Futhermore, according to Warfield (2016),

alternatively, crowded rooms and a high-density of students often results in lower


173

student achievement and a poorer student disposition. Research suggests that students

need 2-4 feet of personal space in order to feel satisfactorily crowded and get the most

out of their learning environment. In addition, students who get involved in the creation

of their environment (through artwork, configuration, or participation in the physical

dynamics of the classroom) experience a sense of empowerment and community that

can help increase their overall motivation.

6. Rich in Innovative Equipments. A school, which is a place of learning,

obviously needs to possess the necessary supplies to aid their students‘ learning

process. Not all lessons are learned in discussions, and not all information is

accessed only inside the classroom, thus, there should be extensions of learning

such as computers, books, and other materials related to technologies.

Co-Research B said that, sa mga libraries, dapat dun kumpleto lahat nung libro na

kailangan nila dun..As in dapat, enough... Yung, makukuha nilang information kapag

pumunta sila don. Sa.. Siguro po sa, library... Ah sa... Computer, computer lab, dapat

po... As in lahat ng computer dun, gumagana.[On… maybe on the, library… ah

on…computer, computer lab, it should… as in all the computers there, are functional].

Co-Research A and Co-Researcher C have the same perception on one of their

facilities. Co-Researcher A said that, Ayo‘n school facilities, ayo‘n ‗yong ano din library

bet na bet ko ‗yang library kasi libre ‗yong… internet sobrang laking tulong niyan sa ano

sa mga… sa‘tin lalo na sa mga nagreresearch.[Well, on the facilities, the uh library too,

I really like the library since the uh internet is free and it's really a big help on the uh on

the...us especially on the ones who's doing research].


174

Co-Researcher B stated that, sa mga school facilities gaya ng sa mga library,

uhm...okay siya in a way na yung mga libro kapag may mga kailangan kaming isearch

na info, nakukuha namin yung- nakakahiram kami ng libro then yung mga computers

na nasa loob ng library, pwede namin siyang gamitin ng ano- kapag gumagamit kami

ng s- magsesearch kami ng school related then sa mga ano, isa pa dun yung

ano...yung science lab na naka- dun kami nakakapagexperiment ng mas maayos. [

On the contrary, Co-Researcher D and Co-Researcher J opposed. Co-Research D

said that, ano to be honest, kuuuuuulang meron namang mga school facilities katulad

ng library maganda yung library actually napupunan yung mga needs ng mga students

pero kung facilities para sa lahat ng students para mapunan lahat ng pangangailangan

ng students feeling ko hindi siya sapat. [Uh to be honest, it lacks, there‘s school

facilities like library, the library is nice actually it provides all the students‘needs but I

feel like it‘s not enough]. Co-Researcher J stated that, ‗yung library yung ano nga

kulang sa mga libro, ano yan? anoo… ano ba yun? readers digest mga magazine sige

aanhin namin yan? sige sabihin nyo aanhin namin yan? Paano nman yung mga text

books na kailangan namin kunwari ahh..mga… pang accounting, yung pang reading

and writing,yung mga ganung libro wala silang ganun eh parang.. para san yung library

kung hindi masyado siyang magagamit although nagagamit namin siya sa research may

mga libro dun na naglalack yung library tawag dito.. yung..yun nga upuan kasi ang laki

naman ng space ng library pwede niyo naman dagdagan yung lamesa at upuan niyan

hindi yung nakatayo kami habang nagbabasa diba?[The library the uh it lacks books,

what‘s that? What… what is that? Reader‘s digest magazines okay, what will we do with
175

that? Okay tell us what we‘ll do with that? How about the textbooks that we need like

ahh… those… for accounting, for reading and writing, those kinds of books are not

there like… like what is the library for if it‘s seldom used, although we use it for

research, some books there are lacked by the library, what do you call this… the… yeah

the seats, the library is spacious, you can add more tables and chairs so we don‘t have

to stand up while reading right?]

Co-Researcher E shared his sentiments. Meron sa classroom namin uh…meron kami

nung- yun sabi ko nga kanina aircon. May aircon…may aircon-may electricfan, yun may

maayos kaming upuan at lamesa.[In our classroom there‘s uh… we have the- what I‘ve

said earlier, the aircon. There‘s an aircon..an aircon, an electric fan, there we have

decent chairs and tables.]

Advanced technologies helped learners to involved in many activities and

experiencing it themselves. This events help students engrossed in new chances and

immersing challenges to make them capable of excelling in life-long learning (Groff,

2013). In addition, according to Suleman and Hussain (2014), to have a certain positive

classroom condition, it must have facilities that are well-equipped. Classroom physical

course of operation provides great learning to students and promotes productive

educational procedures.

7. Easy-Adjustment Milieu. It isn‘t new that a school has to deal with making a

welcoming environment for their students. However it should be a combined

effort from both the school and its students, to establish an environment

wherein everyone feels like they can easily adjust and fit right in.
176

Co-Researcher A shared his experienced on how he adapted to his school

environment. Kasi, ayo‘n nga ah hindi naman mahirap mag-adapt kapagka organized

ang isang bagay ‗di ba? Kasi makikisunod ka lang sa flow makakaadapt ka na ‗di ba?

Dito sa can – sa ano… sa canteen makikipila ka lang malalaman mo na ‗yong sistema

ng pagkuha nila ng pagkain. Sa Library makikisama ka lang sa ibang mong classmate

na dating taga-Mystical makukuha mo na ‗yong ano… ‗yong… way nila kung pa‘no, ay

‗yong ano ‗yong process kung paano ka makakasali do‘n sa ano, ay makakasali,

makaka-adapt doon sa Library nila kunyare, ayo‘n lang. Madali lang maka-adapt. [Yeah,

what I did is not really that big...big adaptation. It's like at first, I adapted uh to my

surroundings, on the...on the uh people, on my classmates then I just adapted on the

environment, here in the actual school. Because, that's it uh it's not that hard to adapt

when a thing is organized right? Here at can- in uh...in the canteen you'll just join the

line then you'll know their system or way of getting food. In the library just be with

your classmates who are old students here in Mystical you'll get the uh...the...their way

on how, oh the uh the process on how can you join there on uh, oh be able to join, to

be able to adapt to their library, for example, that's all. It's just easy to adapt].

Co-Researcher B also shares his adaptation and said, Siguro...hm...hindi naman- wala

naman kasi akong masyadong napansin na ano na parang pagkakaiba kaya parang

madali nalang mag-adjust.

Co-Researcher D explained his sentiments on adjusting to his school environment.

‗yung environment nung school natin ngayon okay lang naman nung at first syempre

parang hindi ako sanay kasi shempre grade 11 shs tayo prang iba yung school
177

environment na papasukan mo kasi may mga transferees bagong students galing public

schools and tapos ako dito ako grumaduate so parang nakakapanibago at first pero

kung maiintindihan mo naman at malalaman mo naman na kaya karin naman nilang

pakisamahan ok lang din naman sakin wala namang problema dun.

On the other hand, Co-Researcher F shared his struggles on adapting to his new

school environment. Hmm syempre mahirap di naman kaagad kaagad mama makaka

makakaadjust ako nung una kasi na nag aaral ako dito na walang kasamang kaklase o

kaya kakilala. Syempre ano ano lonely tapos ayun yung mga kaklase ko naman pala

palakaibigan palabiro ayun mas ayun mas naadjust maayos at mas mabilis kahit

papaano syempre ginagalingan ano oo ginawa ko yung ginagawa ng mga kalase ko

nagi naging palakaibigan din ako palabiro katulad katulad lang ng ginagawa ko nung

nasa dati sa dati kong school.[Hmm of course it's hard you won't adjust that easily at

first because when I studied here I don't have my classmates or anyone that I know

with me. Of course uh, it's lonely and my classmates are actually friendly and like to

joke, yeah. I adjusted more well and fast atleast of course I do my best uh I just do

what my classmates does. I'm becoming friendly and a joker like- like what I was doing

on my previous school].

If a child is well-adjusted to an environment he will surely be aggravated to do

more and stand out in the activities of his own school which will led to his improved

academic performance. Academic achievement is significantly based upon the adjusting

skills of a child (Lakhani, Jain and Chandel, 2017).


178

8. Pliable Perceptions. Given the fact that humans are social beings, their

perceptions may even be intertwined. Since they belong in the same

environment, they may perceive it the same way too.

Co-Researcher A said that, Sa sinasabi nila? O, kunyare classmate ko dating taga-

Mystical ta‘s may sinasabi din sila… Oo, ah no‘ng una, syempre no‘ng una nakaapekto,

bago pa lang ako dito eh, panay ang sinasabi ng mga… classmate ko na taga-Mystical,

bulok ang Mystical, bulok ang Mystical gano‘n ang sinasabi nila pero nakita ko naman

na maganda ‗yong sistema ng Mystical eh. Kaya ayo‘n, una nakaapekto siya sa‘kin pero

ayo‘n parang na-discover ko na lang na, ‗di, maganda ang sistema ng Mystical,

Co-Researcher C also said, Uhm...minsan oo kasi ano parang ano, halimbawa yung

perception ko dun sa mismong school facilities sa mismong school environment, parang

nagkaka- nagkakaroon kami ng same na...kasi minsan napag- napag-uusapan din

naman namin yun. Parang ano...lalo na yung mga classmates ko parang...nagkakaroom

kami ng share- ano nagkakaroon kami ng same perception then ayun minsan nag-iisip

kami ng pang...ayun yung school facilities ng- yung ibang parts ng school facilities

dapat parang hindi ganun.[Uhm...sometimes yes because uh it's like uh, for example,

my perception on the actual facilities in the actual school environment, it's we're hav-

we're having the same...because sometimes we talk- we also talk about it. It's like

uh...especially my classmates are like...we're having a share- uh we're having the same

perception then yeah sometimes we're thinking of...yeah the school facilities of- the

other parts of school facilities shouldn't be like that].


179

Co-Researcher J stated that he is being affected by the perceptions of others by

saying, Syempre naman teacher and students affect my perception in my environment

as a student because mlaki yung impact ng..ng ano… ng teachers because sila yung

yung ano…sila yung mas nakakaalam sa pasikut sikot ditto sa school.[Of course

teachers and students affect my perception in my environment as a student because

there‘s great impact by uh… of uh… of teachers because they um um, uh… they know

their way around this school].

The way individual views an event or situation depends personally as reflections

of how they view the world and impact their life decisions similarly with the other

individuals (Students‘ Perception, 2015).

9. Safety. Naturally, a school environment must assure their students‘ safety for it

is their duty. Feeling safe in a certain environment enables you to perform to the

fullest because you‘ve got one less thing to worry.

Co-Researcher A stated that,‗Yong ano pa, napapansin ko lang dito sa ano sa…

facilities ng school ‗yong mga ano, tawag dito ‗yong mga inclined-planes diyan masyado

siyang ano, inclined. Mga four – four… parang 45 ano ‗yan eh degrees oh. O, ‗di ba?

Kasi ano eh, ‗pag – ‗pag ganyan parang… exit route ‗yan ‗di ba? ‗Pag exit route di ba

dapat ano… kahit exit route siya kailangan ano pa rin safe pa din.

Co-Researcher J said that Mali… ano… yun… malinis, yung hindi puro kalat sa paligid

tapos ligtas syempre yung walang mga naka… sa may… walang naka-expose na wire o

yung mga underconstruction pero dinadaanan ng mga estudyante, syempre pangit

yun.[Wrong… uh… that… clean, the surroundings are not full of litter and safe of
180

course, that have no… where… there are no exposed wires or the under construction

areas where students pass by, those are bad]. He also added, ilang beses talaga akong

nahulog sa hagdanan and yung parang ramp yung parang ganun sa stairs parang

maganda rin na…harangan nila kung delikado talaga pero as a student na

nagmamadaling bumaba tas ang daming nakapila siguro kaylangan ng mas mawalawak

na stairs ayun. [I really fell down the stairs multiple times and the like the ramp in the

stairs I think it's better ... that they block it if it's really dangerous but as a students

who hurries downstairsn and many are in lin maybe the stairs need to be wide, yeah.]

Schools are meant to be a secure place for every child. They are an important

component of their lives (Wood, 2018). According to Warsi (2018), Security at school

allow children to look forward to being an heartening environment, provides social and

creative learning, And if by any chance, their safety is not met children will be

threatened and might stop going to school. Providing school safety makes a way for

kids to learn and discover many things.

CHAPTER 5

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS, SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION, IMPLICATIONS,

RECOMMENDATIONS

This chapter presents the summary of findings, symbolic representation,

implications drawn and recommendations suggested by the researchers

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The purpose of this exploratory research is to explore the perceptions of the

selected grade 11 students on their school environment as learners in Mystical Rose

School of Caloocan, Inc. for the current school year 2018-2019. At this stage in the

research, the perceptions are defined as the insights and the way students perceive

their school environment as a learner. School environment is defined by its physical

structures, classroom climate, student-teacher interactions and academic standing

plays a crucial role in the lives of the students.

Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions:

1. How may the participants describe their school environment in terms of

1.1 School facilities;


1.2 Student-teacher interactions; and
1.3 In terms of classroom climate?

2. How do the participants perceive their school as learners?

3. What implications may the findings offer for school concerned policy

development and management?

4. How the findings may be utilized in crafting a SWOT analysis to further

improve the current situation of the school environment.


182

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS

According to the perceptions narrated and after thorough analysis of the data,

the researchers present the summary of the findings.

The school environment plays a very crucial role in every student‘s life. It was

shown at the perceptions of the students on their school environment that it is a place

where they can be honed to have broader knowledge about things and and develops

their initiative to be responsible about fulfilling their roles as a student.

It was found that school environment have a great impact on the academic

achievements of the students. The school environment is directly related to the

students, because it affects them on their academic matters,

It was discovered that the ideal school environment of the students based on

their perceptions has to do with cleanliness and having many plants around the school.

The teaching strategy of the teachers has to do also with the way students view

their school environment. The teachers should have other techniques when it comes to

teaching and interacting with the students.

It was discovered that classroom climate distresses the students due to the fact

that the temperature of their teaching space have an impact on their studies. It could

split up their attention with their academic matters.

Involvement of high-technology and complete high quality equipments are very

important for the students since it makes their work a lot more easier. There

specialization subjects are being performed well since they have a place to do their

work.
183

Adapting to their school environment is very crucial for the students since they

always spend their time mostly on school. It is found that adjusting depends on the

students‘ life at school.

The perceptions of the people around them can easily influence their own

perceptions towards their school environment. Especially when the people who

influence their insights have a close relationship with them.

Lastly, it was found that learners want their learning environment to be

developed or improved for their assurance of safety.

SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION

PANDORA’S BOX

The researchers chose Pandora‘s Box as symbol of their study. In classical

mythology, it was a box that Pandora, the first woman, received from Zeus, with strict

instructions to not open it. Pandora's curiosity soon got the better of her, and she

opened the box. All the evils and miseries of the world flew out to excruciate mankind.

But only one thing was left inside the box, it was hope. It is a good representation of

the study since they‘re really alike in many ways.

The researchers represent Pandora and the co-researchers as the box. The

researchers got curious on what are the perceptions of the students towards their

school so they chose to conduct an exploratory research which will include their co-

researchers, who represents as the box, to open that topic and explore it. The co-

researchers revealed a lot of flaws, which represent the evil and miseries, of their
185

school environment. But at the same time, they‘re the ones who showed hope by

stating the positive sides and suggestions, which represent the hope that serves as the

solution on improving and beautifying the school environment for the students to feel

more satisfied and comfortable.

According to Greekmyths (2019), the myth of Pandora's Box was used by the

Ancient Greeks not only to make their selves aware about the humans' vulnerabilities,

but as well as to explain numerous mishaps of the human race. Similar with the

researchers who used their participants or co-researchers as their instruments to reveal

the negative sides which represent the vulnerabilities of the school environment.
186

IMPLICATIONS

Based on the summary of the findings, the following implications are drawn.

The grade 11 students‘ perceptions were greatly vital for overall academic

performance and achievements at school. There are certain factors that the school

might provide and maintain for their students. Their main priority should be provide an

improved environment for their attendees.

Likewise, the facilities of the school should be convenient and functional for all.

The school administrators should be aware on their school‘s condition. They should

assess the school environment itself in different aspects before letting the students

make use of it.

The classroom climate should individually be in neutral state, neither too hot or

too cold. Students should be reminded that they should put an effort in obtaining a

welcoming atmosphere fot their environment. They should be mindful of each other‘s

classroom‘s schedule so they know how to deal with certain urgent situations.

The facilities of the school should not only consist of buildings but also

incorporate Zen elements. Furthermore, it is also important that the educators are well-

trained in order to perform optimally in discussions.

On the contrary, the school still has its positive sides with regards on its

environment. They are able to sustain a high quality education despite majority of the

teachers are fresh graduates. Teachers treat their students in a way that there is a

healthy emotional relation between both parties. In relation to this, students should be

able to maintain a mutual relationship with the teachers and other students to keep the
187

amiable atmosphere the school has. The students‘ camaraderie was stong bind, no

matter what happen.

On this time, the school was still lacking some facilities that the students wanted

to have for it was just a new built structure. On the other hand, the school is doing its

best to provide tha needs of the students. Regardless of being a new institution, they

are able to offer their utmost services they can for their students.

The essentiality of the students‘ perceptions is that impactful since it may affect

the way they view everything and every situation. Each student must share their own

perceptions towards the school environment as their contribution on further

improvement of the institution they are part of.


188

RECOMMENDATIONS

The following are hereby recommended based on the given implications.

To the students, continue to speak out whatever insights you have in your

school to help for the betterment of the institution. Learn to adapt to your school

environment for it is your second home and it will help you to enhance your skills and

abilities.

To the parents, watch out for the school environment where your children

spend most of their time. Give them a hand in terms of their academic life. Better to

ask your children about their insights on their learning surrounding.

To the faculty, continue on having a good parenting with your students. Let

them feel the love of a true parent and correct them in a way that they could

understand. Help in maintaining a home-like atmosphere for the students while they

were at school.

To the school administrators, further improve the facilities of the school so

that students would have a suitable learning environment based on their perceptions.

Students will be eager on learning if they can feel a welcoming ambiance on their

surroundings.

To the future researchers, keep your fire burning on studying deeper about

the perceptions of the students towards their school environment; include other grade

levels or institutions as the locale of the research. Fulfill the knowledge gaps present in
189

the recent study, increase the counts of the co-researchers, widen the scope of the

study and improve the S.W.O.T. analysis.

STRENGTHS, WEAKNESSES, OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS (S.W.O.T)

ANALYSIS

SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis) is a

structural format used in pinpointing and evaluating the interior and exterior elements

that can affect the sustainability of a study, goods, locale or individual (Pratt and Tucci,

to be…wait lang…kailangan kong pahalagahan ang…pag-aaral ang…yung pag-aaral ko
as a learner itself, myself.
Interviewer: Would you describe what an ideal school environment is for you?
Interviewee: Ah. My ideal school environment would be, somewhere that
is…probably…that probably has a lot of great facilities and…very great teachers. Ah, the
classroom climate, maybe somewhere spacious, and…somewhere those, somewhere,
where we will not have to…actually look for anything else, something, that‘s complete
for a student.
Interviewer: Ideal school facilities?
Interviewee: Ah, currently, my environment seems fine, it seems to be complete- it
seems to have all…of what it needs right now, and…I would say that…it‘s currently
good!
Interviewer: Ideal teachers?
Interviewee: My teachers, are also, very fine…they‘re very skilled and I‘m very happy
that they‘re my teachers because they, could, they teach a lot of good things.
Interviewer: Ideal classroom?
Interviewee: Ah…the classrooms are okay, though there might be some
problems…regarding, certain facilities…that, they need, to check up but…I think it‘s
okay because…currently, my school is…a bit…new? So…yeah. Ah, the school facilities,
namely, some of them, need…to be, a bit more, polished…and…completed, but atleast
they have, them so…that‘s more than, what, you could ask for.
Interviewer: How do you perceive your school environment as a learner?
Interviewee: I fa- I, perceive my school environment as a learner, as something
that‘s…very important, more like a safe place, or, somewhere where I could get really
productive.
Interviewer: How do you perceive your school facilities?
Interviewee: My school facilities, I don‘t mind them that much, as a learner because
they‘re not really important…in regards to learning…itself.
Interviewer: How do you perceive your teachers ?
Interviewee: Of course, my teachers, are very important people to me…not just, as
someone who educates, but also as…someone who can guide me…and become my…f-
family or something?
Interviewer: How do you perceive your classroom?
Interviewee: Of course, I perceive my classroom as a place where I should really learn,
and where I should really focus…s- especially on my students.
Interviewer: How do you adapt to your school environment? Can you share it with us?
226

Interviewee: I adapt to my school envir- parang aano…? Mag…a- a…panong, adapt? To


your school environment? Academic ganon?...Okay so, I adapt to my school
environment, in a way where, I just have to slow down and…really think that there‘s no
pressure…in my school environment, because if, you‘re calm, then, everything will
be…fine.
Interviewer: How does it affect you?
Interviewee: Well, of course, it affects me as a learner, very much, because…if, I don‘t
adapt to my school environment, then…my learning will be, a bit…a bit in trouble
because, if I don‘t adapt to it, then I will not be comfortable, then I really wouldn‘t
learn much.
Interviewer: As a learner?
Interviewee: Of course, if I don‘t learn much, as, I‘ve mentioned before, in…your last
question, if I don‘t learn much, my academic success will also…not, will also…f- fail? Or
fall? Because…if I‘m not learning anything, how can I find…academic success?
Interviewer: Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow students affect your
perceptions on your school environment as a student? How?
Interviewee: Of course it, will affect, my perception, as a student, because, my
interaction with my teachers and fellow students are important, because I meet them
almost everyday, you know, five, days…a week so, I should have very…close
relationships with them because, of course, I will be with them for, a lot of time.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?
Interviewee: Or course, um…regarding the school administrators, I would advise, them,
that…they need to learn…the balance between…discipline, and also, between…and also
bet- they need to learn the balance between discipline and also caring for their students
because at times, there would be…you…at times, you could be very harsh to the
students and, the students will not learn, but at times, you could be very…too g-
parang, yung…maluwag ka lang sa mga students mo? So…parang, mawawalan naman
ng disiplina yung mga students mo. And to my fellow students, I would like to advise to
them, that they should take it easy, kase…yung, pag=aaral, hindi naman lahat yan, at
lalo na yung grades parang…chillax lang.

‗yong luto nila tapos may sis – sistema pa kapagka bibili ka ng ano… ng… pagkain. Sa
library ayo‘n marami, maraming…maraming books na pwede nating pag-refer-an,
marami ring computer na pwedeng gamitin kapagka may research, gano‘n. How did I
adapt? Ano, kasi ‗di baa no, mula bata pa– ano ako eh, public school ako eh. Laki

mismo. Kasi, ayo‘n nga ah hindi naman mahirap mag-adapt kapagka organized ang
isang bagay ‗di ba? Kasi makikisunod ka lang sa flow makakaadapt ka na ‗di ba? Dito sa
can – sa ano… sa canteen makikipila ka lang malalaman mo na ‗yong sistema ng
pagkuha nila ng pagkain. Sa Library makikisama ka lang sa ibang mong classmate na
dating taga-Mystical makukuha mo na ‗yong ano… ‗yong… way nila kung pa‘no, ay
‗yong ano ‗yong process kung paano ka makakasali do‘n sa ano, ay makakasali,
makaka-adapt doon sa Library nila kunyare, ayo‘n lang. Madali lang maka-adapt.

237

Interviewee: Paano ako naaapektuhan ng school environment ko? Ano ‗yong school
environment, ayo‘n nga kasi ‗yong school environment parang ano siya eh, directly
proportional sa learner ‗di ba? Kapagka maganda ‗yong school environment mo,
maganda rin ‗yon ano, ‗yong… positive effect din ‗yong mangyayari no‘n sa… student.

Interviewer: As a learner?
Interviewee: ‗Yong? ‗Yong school environment ko? Ayo‘n nga tulad ng sabi ko kanina,
ulitin ko, directly proportional ‗yong ano, ‗yong school environment sa learner, tsaka
‗yong mga…. teacher. The way na magturo ‗yong teacher ano rin ah, parang…
proportional din sa kung paano maperceive ng estudyante ‗yong tinuturo nila. Kunyare
‗yong teacher ah, ay hindi sa ano na lang environment, kunyare sa mga public school
ah kunyare gan‘to ‗di ba, pa – public school? Natural na maraming hindi well-maintai –
hindi well-maintained na mga ano ‗yong mga… ‗yong paligid, ‗yong classroom kaya
ayo‘n. Tapos ‗yong mga, given na ‗yong mga estudyante makukulit tapps ‗yong teacher
tamad pa magturo ibig sabihin, mabababa – baba din ‗yong ano, ‗yong... tawag dito,
‗yong feedback ng estudyante, ay feedback ‗yong ano, ‗yong way ng pagkatuto ng
estudyante. Kaya ayo‘n, bale an – ano ba ‗yong tanong?
Interviewer: In your academic success?
Interviewee: How does ano? How this… ‗Yong learning environment ko? Ayo‘n learning
environment ko ngayon, tulad nga ng sinabi ko kanina ‗di ba, ‗yong nakatulong ‗yon
para mas ma – mas marami akong matutunan ngayon. Lalo na ‗yong mga teacher, kasi

nagets ‗yong tanong. Basta oo. Wait hindi ko kasi na-gets ‗yong tanong eh, parang
parehas lang siya dito. Sa sinasabi nila? O, kunyare classmate ko dating taga-Mystical
ta‘s may sinasabi din sila… Oo, ah no‘ng una, syempre no‘ng una nakaapekto, bago pa
lang ako dito eh, panay ang sinasabi ng mga… classmate ko na taga-Mystical, bulok
ang Mystical, bulok ang Mystical gano‘n ang sinasabi nila pero nakita ko naman na
maganda ‗yong sistema ng Mystical eh. Kaya ayo‘n, una nakaapekto siya sa‘kin pero
ayo‘n parang na-discover ko na lang na, ‗di, maganda ang sistema ng Mystical, dapat

Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?

‗yong ibang facilities kasi improved na siya, well-maintained. Parang ipa – mas ipa-
improved ba, kunyare dada – dagdagan ng numbers ng C.R kada floor may C.R para
238

hindi na akyat-baba ‗yong mga students. Sa Library dagdagan ‗yong mga books para
mas maraming pag… maraming pag-refer-an ‗yong mga ano… ‗yong mga students. Ano
pa ba? ‗Yong ano pa, napapansin ko lang dito sa ano sa… facilities ng school ‗yong mga
ano, tawag dito ‗yong mga inclined-planes diyan masyado siyang ano, inclined. Mga
four – four… parang 45 ano ‗yan eh degrees oh. O, ‗di ba? Kasi ano eh, ‗pag – ‗pag
ganyan parang… exit route ‗yan ‗di ba? ‗Pag exit route di ba dapat ano… kahit exit route
siya kailangan ano pa rin safe pa din. Parang aya‘n, ipabago sana ‗yan, tapos ‗yong,
itong court paki-ano, parang… paki-ano, o kaya gawin na lang soundproof ‗yong room
naming gano‘n. Basta no, ‗yong kada program naman siguro isama na lang kami. ‗De
charot lang. Para wala kaming klase, ‗di kapagka may program siguro, ano lang ‗yong, o
i-adjust para kasi kapagka may class hours ano ‗di ba parang maaapektuhan kami no‘n
‗di ba. Ano pa ba sa fellow students ko naman ayo‘n sa mga dating taga-Mystical, hindi
po bulok ang Mystical for your information, I‘m promoting Mystical ayo‘n. Ano pa ba?Sa
mga fellow students ko, kaya natin ‗to mga Grade 11 students, magresearch lang tayo.
Sa Grade 12 may research ulit tayo, kaya natin ‗to. Sa mga Grade 10 may research pa
din kayo sa Grade 11 kaya ‗yong mga… kaya ‗yong mga ano susunod na bata ano,
appreciate na lang kung ano ‗yong mayro‘n tayo huwag na tayo maghangad ng mas
malaki. Kaya kasi… alam naman – kasi ‗di ba may feedback naman na… na… may
feedback naman na… naririnig ang mga admins ‗di ba? Kaya sila – sila na ang bahala na
ano do‘n na… mag… na mag-adjust para sa‘tin, kaya… Ano pa ba? Kaya kung mag –
hihingi pa tayo ng kung ano maghihingi pa tayo ng mas malaki syempre ibibigay nila
‗yon, pero ano huwag tayo magmadali, kaya makuntento tayo sa kung anong mayro‘n

sa pag, nag lelesson.. parang, wala lang.. lesson lang, basta ganyan bigay, ok.. tapos
may grade ganon. Tas..ano... na- nakakalungkot, kasi nung una.. siya pa yung
programming teacher namin, so.. yun yung pinaka subject na, naeexcite kame.. tas na-
nakaka down lang... dahil dun. Sa iba naman pong teachers... meron naman po kaming
teacher na gusto namin, yung as in ang kwela kwela niya tapos naeengage kami lalo na

Interviewee: Siguro...hm...hindi naman- wala naman kasi akong masyadong napansin
na ano na parang pagkakaiba kaya parang madali nalang mag-adjust. Pero yung sa

sa court, ganun. Yung dun po kasi sa ano, walang- wala po kasing court dito yun yung
kasi yung isa sa mga hinahanap ko nung una pero meron na pala dun yun nga lang
malayo sa building namin.
Interviewer: How does it affect you as a learner?
Interviewee: Yung ano po...parang di naman masyadong naapektuhan. Academic
success? Hm...ngayon po sa classroom kasi po ano as in close po yung classroom.
Wala- di tulad dun sa public na ano open tapos yun maririnig mo talaga lahat ng ingay.
Ngayon mas nakakapag-focus mas madaling makinig sa mga lesson ganun.
Interviewer: In your academic success?
Interviewee: Uhm, ano naman nag-improve po ko. Uhm...dati po kasi as in siksikan po
kasi kami and ayun na nga public as in mga nasa 70 kami sa classroom so tapos
nandun pa ko sa pinakadulo kaya medyo mahirap ano marinig yung mga pinagsasabi
ng teacher tapos malabo pa yung- malabo pa yung mata ko kaya di ko masyadong
nakikita yung nga nakasukat sa board. Pero ngayon, na...buti nalang mas madaling
makapag notes.
Interviewer: Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow students affect your
perceptions on your school environment as a student? How?
Interviewee: Opo, isa po kasi sa mga tinitignan ng nga estudyante kung paano
makipag- kung paano ituring ng teachers yung mga estudyante. Kapag yun, pag strikto
diba as in maaano tayo...ma- ano ba yun? Parang...anong tawag dito?Yung...yun yung
strikto maaano matatakot yung mga estudyante matatakot magtanong, ganun. Pero
pag ano naman, yung teacher ang ano ng awra, ang friendly tapos welcoming yung
dating mas marami yung estudyante na magtanong-tanong ganyan kasi ma- oo tas
makakapag open din sometimes ng mga problema tas mas marami yung ano nila mas
magaan kasi yung loob nila pag ganun yung teacher kaysa sa mga teacher na ano yung
parang ang hirap iapproach. Yung sinasabi nung? Yung ano po, naginquire po kasi sila
sa ano dati sa dati ko pong school tapos sinasabi po nila na maganda yung turo tas
242

may ganito rin yung fa- yung mga facilities so yun yung pinaieexpect ko talaga yung
maganda yung turo, ma- maayos yung ano pagtuturo ng mga teacher tapos mas
madali ring matututunan pati na rin yung mga facilities na sinasabi nila na yung mga
pinangako nila ng maayos.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?
Interviewee: Ano po, siguro po yung mga...i- kailangan nilang iemprove yung mga
kulang. As in improve, improve pa tas ayusin yung sa mga...halimbawa yung sa C.R.
po, sa ano din library, sa mga computer lab. Tapos kung pwede pang- kung pwede
pang magdagdag pa sila ng iba panh facilities. Halimbawa, science lab, kung saan
pwede kayo mag ano pag sa mga STEM students tapos pwede din yung sa mga...room
para sa mga H.E., magsusunod na mag-aayos ng mga kailangan nila for household.
Parang mas maganda po kasi yung hindi na maghahanap yung mga estudyante kung
saan sila gagawa, di na sila pakalat-kalat dun sa mga part. Sa kapwa estudyante...ano
po, yun i...kung ano po yung napapansin nila sa school, isabi po nila dun sa mga
nakatataas para maaware po sila dun diba kung ano yung mga nakikitang pagkukulang
ng nga estudyante tapoa kung pano yung- kung paano yung point of view ng mga
estudyante about sa school. Siguro yung sa C.R. palawakin pa tapos, tapos mas isure
na malinis kasi minsan nag aano na yung amoy tas kailangan yun. Tapos uh, dun
naman sa library dagdagan pa nila yung mga librong nakikita dun kasi yun talaga yung
pinakamaaano natin yung pinakareliable na makukuhanan ng nga ano research ganun
thesis.

kasi tapos ano...madalas kapag lalo na kapag late nako, ano hinihingal talaga ko parang
245

ano- dahil nga sabi ko nga kanina parang pinaliit lang yung area na kailangang sakupin
nung school. Parang ano...pinataas nila nang pinataas yung building, yung floors kaya
tas kawawa yung mga nasa 4th floor, nasa 5th floor kasi hingal na hingal na tas pag-
lalo na kapag rush na yung oras.
Interviewer: As a learner?
Interviewee: Bilang student...uhm...siguro ano, yung affect- yung effect nito sakin is
parang mas nagfofocus ako sa ano, studies ko kasi unlike ano, diba dahil nga puro
classroom nga lang yung parang facility dito, wala ka nang ibang mapupuntahan kundi
library or sa mga com lab
Interviewer: In your academic success?
Interviewee: Parang ano uhm...more focus kana sa ano, sa academics mo kumbaga
stay ka nalang sa room mo or...kasi kapag- unlike nung dati kapag ano kasi kahit saan
magpunta parang- kapag halimbawa pumunta ka sa isang place ng school niyo na ano
siya...parang pang pass time niyo siya, parang pang leisure time parang ano nawawala
sa focus yung...nawawala sa ano, sa academics yung focus mo kumabaga parang sa
pahinga ganun unlike ngayon na puro academics lang yung nasa mindset nila.
Interviewer: Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow students affect your
perceptions on your school environment as a student? How?
Interviewee: Tingin ko yung mga...yung sa school environment, mas nakatulong siya
sakin na ano...na mag- yun nga kasi nga dahil nga dun sa mga facilities parang
nakatulong siya para ano...nakatulong siya para sakin as an- an achiever ng section
naming. Uhm...minsan oo kasi ano parang ano, halimbawa yung perception ko dun sa
mismong school facilities sa mismong school environment, parang nagkaka-
nagkakaroon kami ng same na...kasi minsan napag- napag-uusapan din naman namin
yun. Parang ano...lalo na yung mga classmates ko parang...nagkakaroom kami ng
share- ano nagkakaroon kami ng same perception then ayun minsan nag-iisip kami ng
pang...ayun yung school facilities ng- yung ibang parts ng school facilities dapat parang
hindi ganun.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?
Interviewee: Siguro ano...sa mga kapwa ko estudyante kung naninibago kayo sa mga
facilities since...lalo na sa mga galing ng public, siguro dapat sanayin niyo na yung sarili
niyo then... kung ano, kasi tulad ko diba sabi ko nga kanina yung sa- sa ano madalas
akong hingalin. Siguro ano, time management talaga kasi...lalo kung malayo yung
bahay niyo tas ayun...then sa mga ano facili- sa mga school facilitators, uhm...ayun
okay naman na yung pinakaenvironment pero...ano ba, okay na yung
pinakaenvironment nung school...yung interactions lang siguro yung medyo ganun.

Co-Researcher D-------Mats

Interviewer: Tell me something about yourself as an ordinary individual.


Interviewee: I'm Mats from grade 11-Aguinaldo ahh sa tingin ko madedefine ko yung
sarili ko bilang ordinary individual as parang friendly, parang madaling pakisamahan
tapos ano… parang ayoko sa mga hindi organisadong bagay parang gusto ko lahat na
aayon-parang gusto ko lahat maayos, ayoko ng mga bagay na magulo sa paningin ko.
Interviewer: What about as a student?
Interviewee: As a student ano masasabi ko naman na uhm kaya kong mapagsabay ang
mga tawag dito acads mga gawain yung mga extra-curricular activities tapos ano
masipag ako mag sulat. Gusto ko lahat natatapos, ayoko ng may mga nakatamabak na
gawain tas yon masasbi ko naman na competitive student ako.
Interviewer: How do you regard a school environment as a learner?
Interviewee: Ah school environment ano importante yan bilang student, bilang
learner kasi yung iba kasing mga student uhm yung uhm tawag dito? Yung pag aaral
nila minsan kasi naapektuhan hindi lang dahil sa sarili nila kundi dahil sa mga
nakapaligid sa kanila so para sakin importante talaga yung kung ano yung ginalawan
mong lugar especially nasa school ka diba parang sarado lang yun depende nalang
kung paano ka makihalobilo sa mga taong nakapaligid sayo. Parang yung mga
teachers, masasabi mong may pag galang and then yung parang hindi istrikto parang
masasabi mong school pero hindi talaga totally school kasi yung kung paano ka nila
tinetreat is bilang student hindi parang pinepressure ka dahil kelangan mo mag aral
ganun. Ideal school facilities is yung mga facilities na malilinang hindi lang yung para sa
isang student para lang sa mga specific students like kunware yung merong mga music
room, merong mga dance studio kasi alam mong hindi naman lahat ng students ano
lahat naman tayo may ibat-ibang way kung paano natin idediscover mga talents natin
kung paano natin ieemprove so feeling ko yung mga ganung facilities makakatulong
para hindi lang ma discover hindi lang ma develop yung talent mo kundi para magain
din yung confidence. Yung mga kaklase mo na hindi nag hihilahan pababa yung may
mga yung may pag kakaisa yung hindi mabigat sa loob na climate yung masasabi mong
magaan yung loob sa isat isa ganun.
Interviewer: Would you describe what is an ideal school environment is for you?
Interviewee: Ah dito sa Mystical okay lang naman medyo hindi ko lang feel kasi
siyempre mag kakaiba tayo ng building pero kung dito sa environment sa Dona Helen
masasabi kong okay naman maayos naman.
Interviewer: Ideal school facilities?
Interviewee: Ano to be honest, kulang meron namang mga school facilities katulad ng
library maganda yung library actually napupunan yung mga needs ng mga students
pero kung facilities para sa lahat ng students para mapunan lahat ng pangangailangan
ng students feeling ko hindi siya sapat.
Interviewer: Ideal teachers?
Interviewee: Teachers, okay naman wala naman akong problema sa teachers kung sa
tingin naman ng iba masusungit yung mga teachers para sakin depende din naman yun
eh kasi iba iba naman sila ng way ng pag tuturo so nakadipende nalang din sa students
247

kung paano nila iintindihin yung mga teachers. Anong masasabi ko? Ano wala akong
problema sa mga kaklase ko actually sobrang mababait sila and nararamdaman mo na
pag may kailangan ka tutulungan ka nila and then ineenjoy namin yung company ng
isat isa.
Interviewer: Ideal classroom climate?
Interviewee: Sa tingin ko uhm may nakikita akong parang competitive na school
environment kasi example kasi sa strand namin ABM merong walong section so yung
environment mo tapat-tapat yung room feeling mo may ibat-ibang students kang
nakakasalamuha di mo alam kung magaling sila o hindi so yun yung nararamdaman ko
parang ang competitive ng environment kaya parang para sakin gaganahan talaga ako
mag-aral ng mabuti para mapakita ko sakanila kung competitive yung school
environment ko kaya ko silang tapatan.
Interviewer: Tell me something about your school facilities?
Interviewee: Yung facilities anong masasabi ko, ano sana madagdagan man lang yung
mga facilities pero wala narin akong masasabi sa school facilities ngayon ok naman na
siya ang sakin lang sana meron pang madagdag kasi para sa ika iimprove din naman
yun ng school hindi naman para sa students.
Interviewer: How about your teachers?
Interviewee: Sa teachers naman uhm, ano wala wala naman akong masasabi keep up
the good work.
Interviewer: How about your classroom?
Interviewee: Sa classroom namin okay lang nakikita kong kahit hanggang next year
magiging ok parin yung environment ng classroom namin.
Interviewer: How do you perceive your school environment as a learner?
Interviewee: Yung environment nung school natin ngayon okay lang naman nung at
first siyempre parang hindi ako sanay kasi siyempre grade 11 SHS tayo prang iba yung
school environment na papasukan mo kasi may mga transferees bagong students
galing public schools and tapos ako dito ako grumaduate so parang nakakapanibago at
first pero kung maiintindihan mo naman at malalaman mo naman na kaya karin naman
nilang pakisamahan ok lang din naman sakin wala namang problema don.
Interviewer: How do you adapt to your school environment? Can you share it with us?
Interviewee: Uhm siguro makakaapekto siya sa positive way feeling ko makakaapekto
yung school environment para mag pursigi ka mag aral para mas mabigyan ka ng
dahilan para hindi ka tamarin kasi alam mong kasi kapag tatamarin ka tas yung mga
nakapaligid sayo parang competitive parang pang hihinaan ka ng loob so ako ayoko
naman ng ganun so yun yung gagawin ko ganun siya nakakaapekto sakin pero in a
negative way na nakakaapekto siya kasi parang napepressure ka dahil sa mga taong
nakapaligid sayo.
Interviewer: Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow students affect your
perceptions on your school environment as a student? How?
Interviewee: Yes, kasi yung way ng pagtrato ng mga teachers sa students isa din yung
factor para masabi mong kung anong klaseng school environment ang meron sa isang
school pero sa mga teachers kung yung teachers parang iba yung trato sa students
parang masasabi mo na ay parang ayoko ng ganitong school environment parang hindi
248

ko gugustuhin yung ganito pero kung yung teachers naman is okay alam mo sa sarili
mo and ma fi-feel mo rin naman kung ok yung pakikitungo sa students edi parang hindi
ka mag kakaproblema dun kasi parang alam mong okay yung school environment ng
paaralang iyon.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?
Interviewee: Okay lang sana, maimprove lang yung way ng sistema ngayon lalo na sa
mga temporary schedules kasi maraming hindi natutuwa, sa school environment sana
mapagsama sama lahat ng students sa iisang building para hindi malayo yung loob
namin sa iba pa naming kapwa shs student kasi pare parehas lang naman kaming
grade 11 eh so why not pag sama-samahin kami para mabuild din yung friendship
namin and para mag-kaisa hindi lang SHS.

fellow students?
Interviewee: Uhm gusto ko sabihin sa mga administrators na sana yung facilities na
meron dito sa Dona Helen is mas maging maayos at maging appropriate siya sa
students di lang basta ano kasi mostly may finofocus sila na ano na pinagtutunan sila
ng pansin sa bawat isa sa mga estudyante parang gusto nila dito, magfofocus like sa
acads kung acads lang ganun di sila nakikipag-interact sa mga ibang schools pa and
then sa mga students naman na kagaya ko sana alam nila kung ano yung limitasyon
nila kung hanggang saan lang sila sa mga ginagawa nila dito sa loob ng campus.

teachers din ganun din sa students pero makakaapekto naman siya kapag ka ano eh
nagkaroon nga lang kayo ng di pagkakaintindihan parang umover na yung ano ay
pagdating sa sa school makakaapekto yun kasi nga yung relationship nyo pala sa
teacher nyo tas kung di kayo okay parang maapektuhan na yung school din dun kayo
nag-aaral tapos dun din na kaano yung teacher nyo eh parang yun yung magiging
evaluation niya kung okay ba siya dito sa school na to. Yung pakikipag interact ko

minsan mahirap talaga pero kinakaya ko parin naman hanggang ngayon.
Interviewer: How do you regard a school environment as a learner?
Interviewee: Yung school environment naman yung mga estudyante kasi kapag
maganda yung facilities sa isang school parang mas naiinganyo yung mga estudyanteng
mag-aral at saka makakapag-concentrate sila ng maayos. Para sa akin, mas gusto ko
yung facilities na merong parang halaman o kaya parang ganun may display na
halaman. Yung gusto ko namang teacher ano, gusto ko may pagmamahal parin siya sa
kalikasan yung parang mahalaga sa kanya yung kalikasan at saka malinis siya sa
kapaligiran.Yung ideal classroom, classmate ko naman yung gusto ko yung may pag
ano siya may pagpapahalaga siya sa kapaligiran at saka di siya sumasaway sa mga ano
kunwari nagtatapon ng basura ganon.

makapag-intindihan kayo kasi nga hindi magulo yung classroom niyo.

sa pag adapt ng mga rules ng school na ito.
Interviewer: How does it affect you?

magulo, nahihirapan akong masyadong...parang makaintindi kasi nga hindi ko
masyadong naintindihan kapag maingay at magulo.
Interviewer: As a learner?
Interviewee: Syempre taga public ka dati tas biglang lumipat ng private syempre
maninibago ka talaga kaya mahihiya kang kausapin yung ibang students.
Interviewer: In your academic success?
Interviewee: Sa academic success mas naiingayo ako kapag ang school ano siya
maayos at saka yung gusto laging on time yung mga nagtuturo kagaya dito at saka
mas gusto ko yung mas pinipressure kami ng mga teachers mga ganon at mas gusto ko
iyon kasi mas marami akong natututunan.
Interviewer: Does your interaction with your teachers and fellow students affect your
perceptions on your school environment as a student? How?
Interviewee: As a student, naapektuhan ako ng mga- sa mga teachers ko, sa mga
estudyante na parang mas marami pa akong nalaman sa mga persepsiyon ng aking
mga guro at kamag-aral sa isang school na magandang environment at facilities mga
ganon.
Interviewer: Do you want to say something to the school administrators and to your
fellow students?
Interviewee: Yung gusto ko lang sa mga yan siyempre dapat pahalagahan yung school

Co-Researcher J-------Wushu

Interviewer: Tell me something about yourself as an ordinary individual.


Interviewee: Uh…My name is Wushu. I'm 17 years old. I am from Grade 11 STEM-Rizal.
Interviewer: What about as a student?
Interviewee: Uh, hin… hindi masyadong, hindi masyadong hihihe… hindi masyadong
masipag pero nag-aaral ng mabuti he.
Interviewer: How do you regard a school environment as a learner?
Interviewee: Ayon, ah syemp… ano, mahalaga sa akin yung school environment kasi
yung environment na yun yung nagseset ng atmosphere kung paano mag-aaral yung
isang estudyante. Kapag pangit yung school environment, mas mahihirapan magfocus
yung mga estudyante and hindi sila masyadong makakapag-aral ng mabuti. For
example, mainit yung classroom, parang nakakairitable kapag nag-aaral, nakikinig hindi
mo mapapakinggan yung mga teacher kasi ang… pinagkakaabalahan mo ay paano
pawa… paano punasan yung pawis mo tsaka pagpapapay hehe… pagpapaypay sa sarili
mo ganon hehehe.
Interviewer: Would you describe what is an ideal school environment is for you?
Interviewee: Ano, malinis tapos organize, yung mga activity syempre maganda rin yung
organize. Para sa 'kin kabilang na rin yun sa school environment kasi doon tumatakbo
yung buong araw ng estudyante. Para sa akin yung ideal school environment ay
malawak, tahimik, malayo sa kalsada na maririnig yung mga sasakyan o truck ng
basura.
Interviewer: Ideal school facilities?
Interviewee: Malamig syempre, sabi ko nga kanina, nakakairitable kung mainit yung
school. Mali… ano… yun… malinis, yung hindi puro kalat sa paligid tapos ligtas syempre
yung walang mga naka… sa may… walang naka-expose na wire o yung mga
underconstruction pero dinadaanan ng mga estudyante, syempre pangit yun.
Interviewer: Ideal teachers?
Interviewee: Teachers, para sa akin yung mga teachers, yung mga… yung mga stea…
mga teacher, ideal teacher para sa 'kin yung may concern sa bata hindi lang sa pag-
aaral nila, mahalaga kasi sa mga estudyante yung pinapakinggan din sila. Mas
mahalaga din sa 'ming mga estudyante yung teacher namin may konsiderasyon, ayun
hihihi.
Interviewer: Ideal classroom climate?
Interviewee: Ideal classroom, maliwanag kasi 'pag madilim mahirap mag-aral. Malamig,
pero hindi to the point na… oo, freezer na yung school classroom niyo.
Interviewer: Tell me something about your school environment.
Interviewee: Malinis, yung well-painted, ganon tapos kahit hindi naman bago yung mga
equipment o yung mga nakalagay dun basta functional tapos kagamit-gamit talaga.
Interviewer: How about your school facilities?
Interviewee: School facilities is… ah… maganda yung mga school facility na kasya yung
mga estudyante. Yung ideal facility ko kasi, kunyare may 1,000 na estudyante sa
school, dapat yung 1,000 na estudyante na yun kahit na magkakaiba ng schedule kasya
sila dun sa… kasya sila dun sa… ah certain school facility tulad na lang ng library para…
264

kasi yung dito sa school pagkapasok ko ng library minsan wala ka ng mauupuan kasi
lahat occupied na and kung alam mo naman na maraming estudyante sa school niyo
ba't hindi mo dagdagan? ba't hindi mo lakihan? Ah, hindi ko masasabing gusto ko yung
school environment kasi una sa lahat madaming estudyante dito eh, naghalo yung
junior high school tsaka senior high school. So, feeling ko thousands din kami dito and
hallway pa lang medyo masikip na, na kapag bababa yung mga estudyante
nagsisiksikan na. Yung stairs, ilang beses akong nahulog sa hagdan, promise seryoso
yun… nahu… nahulog ako sa hagdan hindi dahil sa ka-clumsy-han ko, hindi sa
katangahan, siguro problema ng stair yun hinulog niya ko, charot. Ilang beses talaga
akong nahulog sa hagdan and yung parang ramp yung parang ganun sa stairs parang
maganda rin na…harangan nila kung delikado talaga pero as a student na
nagmamadaling bumaba tas ang daming nakapila siguro kaylangan ng mas mawalawak
na stairs ayun.
Interviewer: How about your teachers?
Interviewee: Tapos ano.. ano okay lang pero minsan kasi yung ibang teacher walang
pake minsan kasi diba sabi keep right pero kasi minsan yung teacher yung lumalabag
sa keep right tapos magagalit pa pagnabangga mo diba? ang saya haha tapos ano
parang ano.. well discipline naman yung karamihan ng mga teachers may mga piling
teachers na parang wala silang pakielam sa paligid nila may mga teachers na nagsasabi
pagmadumi yung classroom oy yung kalat niyo syempre lilinisin agad namin yung ibang
mga teachers ano parang wala lang silang pakielam sa environment sa kapaligiran nila
basta makapasok lang sila ayun.
