Classroom management occupies a vital position in the pedagogical approach of the teacher and the life of high school students in Africa. Teachers who use laissez faire administrative style and methodology in the classrooms run the risk of aiding vices in students. Currently, it has been a social concern that there is increase in moral decadence. In addition, that many high school students are prone to some deviant behaviour due to ineffective classroom management. Effective classroom management is the key to curbing incidences of indiscipline such as disobedience, disrespect, lying, bullying, examination malpractice, and truancy among high school students of Africa. Effective classroom management through goal-oriented and specific instructional objectives, instructional strategies, and instructional resources helps students acquire the virtues of honesty, hard work, collaboration and responsibility, which leads to proper character formation and academic excellence of the learner. This qualitative study is anchored on the Classroom Management Theory of Thomas Gordon. This theory explicitly opines that an effective classroom management enhances productivity in the students. The study is solely based on document analysis of secondary data, and classroom observation. The findings of the study confirm that positive classroom climate enables the student to feel cared for and be engaged in school activities that lead to positive pursuits in life. The study therefore recommends that teachers should establish a positive learning environment by showing their passion for the subject matter, and being active in moving among the students.
