Abstract: Based on a literature analysis, the research develops the evaluation framework of school moral atmosphere. In addition,drawing on the existing scales, the research seeks to establish the school moral atmosphere scale, in accordance with the current situation of primary and secondary education in China. The research selects 1,000 primary and secondary school students in East China as a sample, and uses confirmatory factor analysis to analyze the scale by AMOS 17.0. Our findings show that school moral atmosphere can be measured by two orientations: justice and caring. Justice can be measured by four measures: fairness, democracy, norms and integrity.Caring can be measured by five measures: respect, help, understanding, tolerance, and belonging.

Key words: primary and secondary school students, moral atmosphere, justice
