Abstract
This research aimed at evaluating schools which applied the concept of school well being. The research location was selected based on a survey to find out a unique school with incomplete facilities (infrastructure), but the students had a high spirit to study. This study applied a constructive Realism method, which constructed the findings based on data collected from the field. Data was collected through questionnaires, interviews, observations and focus group discussions. The total subjects involved as informants =141 consisted of 26 teachers, 65 parents of students and 50 students. The analysis was conducted with the coding method applied to the answers collecting from the subjects. They were categorized until a clear description of data was generated. Moreover, the results showed that school well being had four indicators, i.e., 1. Having, the physical condition of the school was the aspect that most respondents complained about and created a less pleasant feeling. However, but this aspect could be accepted and tolerated by students because the values of religiosity were high enough. 2. Loving, there was a close relationship between students, teachers, and parents. A very positive parent's view of school made students could adapt and stimulated to reach the same perspective. Although students had complaints about teachers, encouragement from parents caused them to be able to overcome these unpleasant feelings. 3. Being, a variety of positive activities (extracurricular) made students feeling happy to be in school. Students focused on this activity and did not think much about other aspects that were less fun. 4. Health, this aspect was less of a respondents’ concern because it was considered not to interfere with the students’ welfare. Thus, the subjective well-being at this school was more successful in the aspects of Being, Loving, and Health, while the Having aspect that was low did not become a crucial problem because of the high value of religiosity so it could be tolerated.
