Currently, Nigeria as a country is going through Social Economic and Political stress. This has virtually affected the whole system of governance; Commerce, Industry, Judiciary and of course the Educational system. It is obvious that individuals (students inclusive) who are subjected to such stress are bound to exhibit low and negative emotions, which in essence may reflect in their output quality. The various educational programmes aimed at addressing the problem quality of education which had been continuously alleged to be falling. Other aspect of education like the management of educational environment has been neglected. It is this gap that this paper intends to fill.. 200 respondents were selected randomly for the study comprising 10 secondary schools from Ibarapa East Local Government of Oyo State. The sample is made of principal, 4 teachers and 15 final years’ students from each of the selected schools. The paper isolated some unique problems associated with the environment and relates their inhibiting factors to the Nigerian secondary school students’ performance. The study revealed that there is a significant relationship between the open school management, style and students learning output. The study also found out that the experienced, well prepared and dedicated teachers has a positive influence on the quality of student learning. In fact it shows that teachers’ technical skill and relationship between teachers and students has the strongest influence on children learning output. .
