These guidelines are general and may vary by school and country. It is also important that teachers and school administration be clear about their expectations and rules, and take steps to help students develop good behavior and responsibility.
Students should behave at school and in the classroom with respect, good behavior, and good content in learning.
Here are some guidelines for proper student behavior at school and in the classroom:
Respect for the teacher and others: Students must show respect for the teacher, school staff and others in the school environment. This includes listening to the teacher, responding respectfully to them, and helping the teacher and others when needed.
Following school rules: Students must follow school rules and procedures. This includes respecting lesson times, wearing a uniform (if mandatory), and following the rules of attendance and safety.
Responsibility for learning: Students need to be responsible for their own educational journey.
This includes being actively involved in learning, engaging in discussions, turning in exams and assignments on time, and taking care of school materials.
Helping and cooperating with others: Students should be willing to help and cooperate with others in the classroom. This includes sharing information, helping with difficult topics, and creating a friendly environment for all students.
Respect for the school environment: Students must take care of the school environment and avoid harmful actions or vandalism.
Technology care: If the use of electronic devices is allowed at school, students must use technology responsibly and in accordance with established rules.
More specifically, students must keep in mind some unwritten rules as soon as they enter the school and the classroom.
At the school entrance:
Take care of the schedule: The best way to start the day is to respect the schedule. Get to school and class on time.
Dress and Hygiene: Dress appropriately for school and make sure you are clean. Follow school dress codes if they are in place.
At the entrance of the class:
Greeting: Open the classroom doors meaningfully and with a calm and respectful greeting to your teacher and fellow students.
Always sit in your seat: When you enter the classroom, go to your seat and sit quietly. This shows respect for the teacher and the learning process.
Use your cell phone carefully: Follow the school’s policy on the use of cell phones and electronic devices in the classroom. Use the cell phone only when necessary and for learning purposes.
Focus on the lesson: When the lesson starts, focus on your teacher and follow the classroom rules for discussions and questions.
Respect others: Show respect to your fellow students and the teacher. Don’t expect bad attitudes and allow others to learn without interruption.
Improve behavior: If any conflict or misunderstanding occurs with the teacher or fellow students, try to talk to resolve the issue in a calm and meaningful way.
Behavior at school and in the classroom is important to creating a healthy learning environment and helping all students be successful in school.
Respect, discipline and cooperation are important qualities that students should follow wherever they are in the school premises.
