Using a range of measures, this research compares individual student perceptions of 'school climate' in several South Australian single sex and coeducational schools. The results indicate that some students' perceptions of their 'classroom climate' may reflect their involvement in bully/ victim interactions with their peers. These findings suggest that it may be possible for teachers to identify victims, bullies and bully-victims among those students who are unhappy in the classroom situation. School staff may then be able to work with these students to reduce bullying in the school context.
