Managing the classroom and establishing effective discipline have always been areas of concern for teachers. Despite years of concentrated study concerning the relationship of classroom control by the teacher and academic achievement by the student, there is no single set of guidelines established for the classroom teacher to address the aforementioned concerns. Classroom management is a situational phenomenon; there are no universal prescriptions for student control under all circumstances. This paper describes the differences between classroom management and discipline, and lists secrets of success from teachers with very good classroom management and excellent classroom discipline. The mission, objectives, core values, and rules and policies for inside and outside the classroom at Polytechnic University of the Philippines Laboratory High School (PUPLHS) are shared as an example for establishing sophisticated management techniques to ensure satisfactory classroom discipline.
