The present study utilized the Inviting School Survey-Revised (ISS-R) (Smith, 2005b, 2013) based on Invitational Theory and Practice (Purkey & Novak, 2008) to examine the school climate of a public primary school in a low urban socio-economic setting in Kenya. School climate was defined as the perceptions of primary school teachers and pupils in five areas: People, Places, Processes, Policies, and Programs, based on the Invitational theory and Practice paradigm. Results showed that the overall school climate of Raduce primary school was inviting in many areas. The current study revealed that in spite of the challenges facing a public school in an urban low socio-economic setting, it is possible with inviting policies, programs, processes, and people, to realize positive academic achievement with students.
