According to Freiberg and Fraser who did some research on the impact of the classroom environment on learning achievement they found out that there is significant relationships between classroom climate and such matters as student engagement, behavior, self'-efficacy, achievement, and social and emotional development,
principal leadership style, stages of educational reform, teacher burnout, and overall quality of school life.
What we Believe
At Acres of Mercy , in Machakos County we believe this could not be more true. We want to be able to partner with many to provide the best possible environment we can to our students so they can develop holistically, improve their behavior and enable us make a difference in affecting educational reforms not just within our location and district but also across the county.
We believe that who we are is determined a lot by where you spend most of your life. For our children it is at school. We want them to have what they probably most times cannot access at home so they cannot lose entirely in their early stages of growth and development.
This is why we have worked with professionals to design a school building that will enable us live out what we believe. Together let us walk the talk. Let us invest in the future of our communities, the future of the society, the generation that carries forward our vision, their vision and the country's heritage of splendor. Let us give them heritage they will be proud of.
We have designed an education program; we continue to design what we believe is the software to run the hardware. Our program focuses on the child, the parent and ensuring transition.
We have facilities that cannot enable us run the program most effectively; but we have started someplace. We want to be the school our children, teachers, and parents would like to be associated with. A school that creates the thirst for learning, where, really our children want to be.
