Abstract School Climate or School environment plays a major role in shaping the quality of school life teaching learning and support. Key concepts for understanding school and classroom climate are social system organization social attitudes staff and student morale power control guidance support and evaluation structures curricular and instructional practices communicated expectations efficacy accountability demands cohesion competition fit between learner and classroom system maintenance growth and change orderliness and safety. Research has indicated a range of strategies for enhancing a positive climate. All school staff have a significant role to play in ensuring that such strategies are well-implemented and maintained. With this in view the researchers have undertaken a comparative survey of select principals teachers and Class IX students of Nalbari Town and Tura Town with the Five Points rating scale adapted from School as a Caring Community Profile-II A Survey of Students Staff and Parents developed by T.Lickona and M.Davidson in January 2003. The findings indicate that though there are variations in the Private Schools and Government Schools in Nalbari and Tura Town Schools in Tura Town indicate a better picture of learning environment as compared to schools in Nalbari Town.
