This study examines the generalizability of a previously validated model on how student perceptions of the school culture affects student achievement. Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) data were collected from 1026 eighth-grade students in secondary schools in Cyprus. The results indicated that achievement scores can be explained by student perceptions of the school cultural environment. The theoretical and practical implications of the results are discussed.
