The main goal of schooling is to develop the students’ ability and support their academic achievement. In addition, a school also serves as a source for students in conceiving the world with its network of social relationship, which they will face independently in adulthood. Thus, it is important to ensure that school functions properly as expected. It is known that students gain better when their schoolworks effectively. This premise is then conceptualized by Lezotte, Lawrence, & Barbara (1990) which defining effective school as a system that promote equality to support the best achievement for all students, both in terms of knowledge and skills. Kirk & Jones (2004) further indicated the 7 dimensions of school effectiveness. This paper aims to describe the application of this principle in one leading primary school in the capital city of Indonesia. Using a need analysis framework, we targeted the whole school stakeholders which consist of 1 principal and 2 vice principals, 6 teachers, 4 parents, and also 92 students across various grade levels, to obtain a comprehensive picture of school effectiveness implementation. From triangulated data gathered, we found that school has not optimally met the dimension of a safe and orderly environment, a climate of high expectation for students’ success, and an opportunity to learn and time on task. These obstacles are found to be strongly related to the teacher’s class management skill. Discussion and suggestions are listed.
