Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between six school climate proxies included in the 2015-2016 New Jersey School Performance Report (SPR) and median school growth percentiles in English language arts and math, and to assess the predictive value of these proxies on academic growth. I collected and analyzed data from the SPR for 1,618 elementary and middle schools. Results indicate the school climate proxies are weakly related with academic performance, and the prediction models explained little of the variance in school growth. I discuss the educational significance of these findings for policymakers and practitioners in all schools.
