A classroom is a place filled with many different attitudes and people. Understanding different factors that lead to teacher and student perceptions of how a multi-campus classroom works play a vital role in figuring out how to improve those classrooms and schools. Throughout this study, the researcher was in a year-long clinical teaching placement. The researcher sought to understand how students and teachers view the concept of multi-campus education with the home campus being a STEM school. The researcher also sought to understand how students and teachers thought a multi-campus education could run better. The researcher collected data through surveys, interviews, and a focus group. Qualitative data were analyzed using the constant comparative method finding themes within the data. The researcher found five themes within the data: challenges of multi-campus education, good for everyone, new social interactions, superiority, and traveling.
