Class rank can motivate students do their best, be rewarding, enhances positive competition in the learning environment, and puts students’ grade point average in context.

Students need to have social responsibility because it increases the commitment by school leaders, enthusiasm from teachers and challenging work by volunteers and outside consultants. Having social responsibility can make an enormous difference in the school’s culture. In the article, “A school for peace and Justice”, Elliot Seif explains that in a positive school culture students are more actively involved in resolving conflicts, show more tolerance to diversity, demonstrate greater understanding of social justice issue and more frequently participate in service activities. This shows that social responsibility can have a huge positive impact to students. According to Douglas Reeves, in the article, “The Learning Leader/The Extracurricular Advantage”, he states that “I learned that the school has recently achieved dramatic improvements in student achievements on almost every count”(1).
One would wonder how a school would be without a without leadership. A school as a learning institution is a place where teaching and learning takes place. It consist of different key players, from students, teachers, auxiliary staff and external stakeholders who performs different roles and have different responsibilities in the institution.

For one to say “this is a good school” certain features must be observed in such a school which are not only adherent to high academic performance but also to the positive general up being of the school community.
“The success of [an] honor code depends on the expectations that students have of their peers’ behavior” (Dirmeyer and Cartwright, 2013); as a result, if peers are the ones who establish and maintain an honor system, the probability of a responsible student community is much higher. Nevertheless, “with a peer-enforced honor code, the likelihood of being caught depends on other students’ tolerance for cheating” (Dirmeyer and Cartwright, 2013). To ensure that the students have a strong moral basis, the school’s administrative board should still guide the students toward the right direction and provide a strong enforcement of whatever form of honor system is composed by the selective student body. A typical issue discussed by many student bodies is “to [function] based on our consciences, but [also in a manner that] represents skeptical and uncertain views of fellow students” (Vangelli, 2013). Therefore, a strong and supportive administration at GSMST would also benefit the students in this way as
These aspects of peer relationships are imperative to the academic success of students.

These negatives typical appear through bullying, harassment and conflict. Welch (2014), indicates that the presence of negative relationships can inhibit learning and
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
The data is measured at specific times that relate to the student’s demographics and student performance on a standard. The progress data helps to show the individual students academic growth and success throughout the school year.
