school quality perceptions, secondary education, suburban
This study examined student, parent and school staff ratings of factors that contribute to school quality in four suburban Utah secondary schools (6th through 9th grades) over a period of three years. The findings indicated that student ratings of aspects of school quality varied according to grade in school, gender, and ethnicity. Parents, students, and school staff also differed in their perceptions of school quality.
