Abstract: This article presented an online survey of how perceived environmental qualities affect Chinese students’ satisfaction in urban high schools. Key findings were as follows: 1) There was an association between students’ satisfaction and classroom environmental qualities including perceived qualities of facilities, furniture and wall decoration, indoor climate, indoor plant, and window view. 2) However, social capital and being away can fully mediate the effects of window view and indoor plants, while effects of perceived qualities (facilities, furniture and wall decoration) and indoor climate can be just partially mediated by them.
Keywords: Perceived classroom environmental qualities, Student satisfaction, High school, Online survey, China
