Engagement on the part of a student is defined as their involvement in, and enthusiasm for school. Engaged students arrive at school prepared and eager to learn, and they are far more likely to promote excitement about learning in those around them. High Engagement is contagious. Engaged students are more than twice as likely to outperform comparison groups of randomly selected students on standardised tests. Engagement distinguishes between high performing and low performing schools.
