Because pupils' perceptions of their capacity for success are keys to their engagement in school and learning, schools should be designed to enhance pupils' feelings of accomplishment. Teachers whom pupils see as supportive and who set clear expectations about behavior help create an atmosphere in which pupils feel in control and confident about their ability to succeed in future educational endeavors. From the research findings the following recommendations can be emphasized, that for high pupils performance pupils should be motivated and discipline be emphasized and pupils learn in favorable environment.
