Organizational Culture of Effective schools

Nader Shahamat, Fatemeh Mahmoudi Sardareh


Organizational culture refers to values, beliefs, norms, expectations and common assumptions that connect individuals to each other. One of the most important elements of the existence and identity of educational institutions is the particular culture that attracted the attention of many educators. The main goal of the thinkers is to identify the dimensions of these organizations as a key to success and to model the performance of these organizations in emerging educational organizations. School culture is a collaborative factor that teachers, parents and managers need to look at in harmony with their local (regional) practices and practices. Local culture is reflected in different ways in the school culture. Effective schools, which are considered to be high in function at schools, have their own culture, which researchers are trying to do with other school schools by studying and identifying the effective components of effective schools. This paper tries to examine the organizational culture of effective schools in terms of performance.
