The aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between school climate and parental involvement in schools. Additionally, the paper aim to identify the situation of school climate and level of parental involvement based on teachers’ perception. Data were collected from 300 teachers in secondary schools in Iran. To achieve these aims, the researchers conducted a research survey to determine the level of parental involvement, and applied Pearson Correlation analysis to investigate the relationship between the school climate and parental involvement. The findings shown that, the school climate is in good situation, but the level of parental involvement is in medium level. There is a significant, moderately strong relationship between school climate and parental involvement. Another finding revealed that school location as a demographic variable only has effect on parental involvement.
