The article deals with the impact of the school on the formation of different skills and qualities of high school students. The study was conducted in 2018 by «the Group of the Study of Current Tendencies of Personality Formation in Education» among students of 9-11th grades in schools in Moscow and the Moscow Region in the ISRAS. As a research method, a questionnaire is used.
The study has been found the ratio of students to the school community, and their satisfaction with communication with their classmates, as well as the causes of dissatisfaction.
In the survey, the authors identified the most discussed topics in the school context – these events taking place in school, plans, entering the university.
The key point of the research was the determination of what sort of qualities and skills of an individual the school develops to the greatest extent. According to the majority of respondents, the school has a positive effect on the development of communicational skills and skills to lead a discussion, to defend own point of view, as well as the formation of such qualities as discipline, collectivism, tolerance, responsibility, and fairness. However, a secondary educational institution does not contribute to the development of stress tolerance, independence, and self-worth.
Also, the opportunities of the influence of students on different aspects of the school’s activities are identified. To the greatest extent, students can influence the form of extracurricular activities, grading, conflict resolution between teachers and students, as well as the organization of coteries and sections. According to the majority of respondents, there is no way to influence teaching methods, the choice of teachers, subjects and training programs, as well as the catering.
It was also revealed that most schoolchildren consider themselves patriots, who love their country and are proud of it. Most of the respondents are planning to obtain further education in Russia and hope that the situation in our country will improve shortly.
