The paper presents the procedure for adapting and validating the Comprehensive School Climate Questionnaire (QCCS), taken from the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory, for lower secondary school students. The sample of schools that participated in the validation of the QCCS belongs to the three-year period of lower secondary school and is distributed throughout the country. The number of students participating was 1396, consisting of 708 female and 688 males. The good psychometric properties of the QCCS composed of the following scales are confirmed: Citizenship education; Support and inclusion among students; Support of teachers to the relationship; Perception of physical and emotional security; Involvement of families and students; Adequacy of the school environment; Antisocial behavior, as an inversely related scale. The support of teachers for learning and personalization of teaching is added. This standardized tool allows teachers to monitor the effectiveness of educational-organizational and socio-relational interventions towards improving the school environment.
