Student engagement and school culture have a continuing transactional relationship. This association has significant outcomes for academic motivation and school success. This chapter begins by describing and understanding the use of the terms school culture and student engagement and the importance of these to school practices and students' academic achievement motivation. It then proceeds to discuss two aspects of school culture that relates to student engagement: perceived teacher support and cultural compatibility. The chapter also reviews literature on engagement and student perceptions of the school climate. Empirical data are then presented pertaining to students' perceptions of school climate and student engagement. To conclude, the chapter demonstrates possible consideration of the implications of this chapter's findings for education, including classroom and school practices as well as programs of teacher preparation.
