Abstract:School effectiveness has been tied in research to a wide range of factors, such as Socio-Economic Status, teacher preparation, quality of instructional materials, funding, etc. Certain elements of the school such as climate, structure, interpersonal relationships have also been proven to affect school effectiveness. Not enough research has focused on the interrelatedness of all these elements and their impact as a whole on school effectiveness. This new approach is greatly indebted to systems theory whereby the various parts of the organization are seen to work together simultaneously and in the process impact school operations and effectiveness. The purpose of this researcher was to examine the relationship of the elements of the Hoy & Miskel's model of the school system and their impact on school effectiveness. It was hypothesized that structure, climate, collective efficacy, and politics will form a linear composite that will be significantly related to school effectiveness. A simple correlation was first conducted on the variables and their relationship to school effectiveness. Multiple regression analysis was then performed on variables of the study. Using elementary schools in Nigeria, the study by this researcher confirms some previous findings. All four elements of structure, climate, collective efficacy, and politics correlated strongly to both student achievement and teachers' perception of effectiveness. The four variables also correlated strongly to each other. A regression analysis also shows that the four elements have a linear relationship with school effectiveness. However, collective efficacy made the greatest contribution to teachers' perception of school effectiveness. It also contributed significantly to the two measures of student achievement used in this study, mathematics and English. These findings support the validity of systems theory as a valuable tool for evaluating the interrelationship of various school elements. The congruence postulate is also confirmed. It is, therefore, presented as a useful tool for school evaluation. This researcher adds to research by establishing once again the interrelationship of the elements of the school as a social system and by successfully demonstrating that a harmonious relationship (the congruence postulate) is necessary to achieve school effectiveness.
