Introduction
Classroom management refers to the wide variety of skills and techniques that teachers
use to keep students organized, orderly, focused, attentive, on task, and academically productive
during a class. When classroom-management strategies are executed effectively, teachers
minimize the behaviors that impede learning for both individual students and groups of students,
while maximizing the behaviors that facilitate or enhance learning. Generally speaking, effective
teachers tend to display strong classroom-management skills, while the hallmark of the
inexperienced or less effective teacher is a disorderly classroom filled with students who are not
working or paying attention.
While a limited or more traditional interpretation of effective classroom management
may focus largely on compliancerules and strategies that teachers may use to make sure

students are sitting in their seats, following directions, listening attentively, etc.a more
encompassing or updated view of classroom management extends to everything that teachers may
do to facilitate or improve student learning, which would include such factors as behavior (a
positive attitude, happy facial expressions, encouraging statements, the respectful and fair
treatment of students, etc.), environment (for example, a welcoming, well-lit classroom filled
with intellectually stimulating learning materials thats organized to support specific learning
activities), expectations (the quality of work that teachers expect students to produce, the ways
that teachers expect students to behave toward other students, the agreements that teachers make
with students), materials (the types of texts, equipment, and other learning resources that teachers
use), or activities (the kinds of learning experiences that teachers design to engage student
interests, passions, and intellectual curiosity). Given that poorly designed lessons, uninteresting
learning materials, or unclear expectations, for example, could contribute to greater student
disinterest, increased behavioral problems, or unruly and disorganized classes, classroom
management cannot be easily separated from all the other decisions that teachers make. In this
more encompassing view of classroom management, good teaching and good classroom
management become, to some degree, indistinguishable.
Argee Abadines (2014) stated that classroom management can benefit of developing a
good relationship between teachers and students. There will be fewer conflicts that will take
place and the learning environment will be more encouraging. Abadines also stated that its easier
to influence the students to behave and do well in school once the teachers have a good
relationship with them.

Saenz (2011) found three factors essential in establishing positive discipline techniques
and high-quality classroom management. The first important factor was realizing that one has a
spiritual calling to the vocation chosen to do. Secondly, it was imperative to consider what
situations may cause conflict in order to understand what to avoid in keeping a well managed
class. Finally, one had to be aware of the actual skills needed to obtain a positive classroom.
Many teachers have held very few skills in their tool box for discipline, so they must be provided
with various techniques and know how to apply them.
Summary of Findings
This study attempted to determine the level of importance of classroom management as
practiced by high school teachers as perceived by the selected high school students and
themselves of Eastern Star Academy during the school year 2014-2015.
More specifically, it sought answers to the following questions:
1. What is the profile of the respondents?
1.1. Students
1.1.1. Age
1.1.2. Grade/Year Level
1.1.3. Years of Staying
1.2. Teachers
1.2.1. Age
1.2.2. Educational Attainment

1.2.3. Years in Teaching
2. What is the level of importance of classroom management as practiced by high school teachers
as perceived by selected high school students and themselves of Eastern Star Academy??
3. Is there a significant difference between the perceptions of the high school students and high
school teachers on the level of importance of classroom management practiced by the teachers
themselves?
The descriptive method of research was used in this study with the questionnaire as the
data gathering instrument. The statistical tools used to treat the data were percentage, mean and ttest.
The salient findings of the study were the following:
1. Profile of the Respondents
1.1 Student respondent
1.1.1 The age of student respondents who were 15 years old ranked number 1 with
a frequency of 11 or 27.5%, 13 years old with a percentage of 25% or 10 as
frequency ranked second, 9 students who were 14 years old or 22.5% of the
respondents ranked third, 16 years old with 8 respondents or 20% ranked
fourth, and last in rank was 12 years old with a frequency of 2 and a
1.1.2

percentage of 5%.
The respondents were equally distributed in each high school grade level

1.1.3

with 10 students or 25%.


Student which stays with the school from 7-10 years ranked number 1 with
19 or 47.5%, 1-3 years ranked second with 14 or 35%, last in rank was 4-6
years stay in school with 7 or 17.5%.

1.2 Teacher Respondent

1.2.1

The age of teacher respondents who were 20-21 years old ranked number 1
with a frequency of 3 and a percentage of 30%, 2 teachers who were 22 years
old or occupied the 20% of the whole ranked second, both 19 and 21 years

old ranked last with a frequency of 1 and a percentage of 10%.


1.2.2 All of the teacher respondents graduated with a bachelors degree.
1.2.3 All of the teacher respondents were teaching for 1-3 years.
2. The student respondent perceive item letters b, c, d, e, f, g, j, k. l, m, n, o, p, q, r, t, u, and
v as very important element on the classroom management, while item letters a, h, i, and
s was perceived as important element on the classroom management. The teacher
respondent perceive all element as very important on the classroom management except
item h which perceive as important.
3. There is no significant difference on the perception of the two groups of respondents on
the level of importance of classroom management practiced by the teachers themselves.
Conclusions
Based on the summary of findings the following conclusions were formulated.
1. Most of the student respondents were 15 years old that stayed in the school for 7 - 10
years and equally distributed in each grade level, while most of the teacher respondents
were 20-21 years old and earned a bachelors degree and stay with the school for 1 -3
years.
2. The level of perceptions of the two groups with the practices in classroom management
of high school teachers were both interpreted as very important.
3. Both respondents have the same perception on the practices in classroom management of
the teachers.
Recommendations
In light of the present study, the following recommendation was hereby given
To the administration: They should initiate policies that would enhance the teaching learning
process through the use of classroom management.

To the teachers: It is recommended that teachers should be more observant about the classroom
management. They should also enhance their classroom management by attending some
seminars.
To the students: The students must observe the classroom management practiced by the
facilitators.
To the future researchers: This research can be replicated using different variables and larger
number of respondents to validate the present study.
