The datarevealed that 7.7% of the total number of officially enrolled students wererecorded with misdemeanors and committed a major violation of the policiesof the school. The data gathered from the Registrar’s office also revealed thenumber of students officially enrolled for two consecutive school years,showing the retention rate of 97.12%. Based on the results, it showed thatthere was no significant correlation between the two variables. Furthermore,the recommendations were given such as the continuous implementation ofthe school policies for its effectiveness on not affecting the number ofenrolment of students.Introduction
Studies in recent literature about the student misbehavior in schools hastaken various styles in terms of research topics. Sun and Shek (2012) foundout that numerous studies examined the definition and range of studentmisbehavior. The researchers in United Kingdom and Australia definedclassroom and school misbehaviors as behaviors which are disruptive toclassroom order and cause trouble to teachers, such as making nonverbalnoise, disobedience, taking out of turn, idleness/slowness, non-punctuality,hindering others, physical aggression, untidiness, out of seat and verbalabuse. Stewart et.al., 2018 (as cited by Sun and Shek (2012) referredstudent misconduct to disciplinary violations in school, for instance,tardiness, vandalism, fighting, stealing, and drinking on campus.At present, student retention is still one of the major concerns of highereducation. Educational organization and institutions are bound to seekprocedures on how to bid and invite students to study in their school andmake every student to stay and finish their study. Student retention is aserious and obvious concern and issue to any educational institutions. (Wild,2012) According to the Hanover Research (2014), effective student supportservices can have a measurable, significant, positive impact on studentretention and graduation rates across the institution. A study at BrockUniversity found that participation in Learning Skills Services, a serviceavailable to all students, had a small but significant effect on academicoutcomes, including higher grades and higher retention rates amongstudents using these services. Lau (2014) emphasized that one of the majorresponsibilities of academic institutions is to uphold a higher studentretention rate. It is the institutions accountability to encourage a sustainedprograms and services that will ensure student retention. Quality servicesand programs must be devised by each educational institution to ensure thatstudents don’t go away from their school and strive to achieve eacheducational goal.
