The purpose of this research is to understand the basic correlation between CPTED based `Safe School Guidelines` and the physical properties of Korean elementary schools. Fundamentally, the guidelines are consisted with phrases that contain a detailed explanation of how the spaces within the school campuses should be and which aspects have to be avoided. Furthermore, the guidelines categorized among the several areas in school are grouped by CPTED elements such as `Natural Surveillance`, `Territorial Integrity` and `Natural Access`. The mission of the researchers was to check the applicability of these guidelines for each school samples and investigate which of the categories or subcategories have strong correlation with the current school crime rates. With these results, a new outline of CPTED guideline exclusive to Korean elementary schools will be obtained which can be applied on earlier stages for future school projects.

), but evaluations of a classroom size were divided between the teachers who had more and less than 30 students in class. Furthermore, three factors, labelled as `uniqueness`, `residential stability` and `visually pleasing`, were extracted from a factor analysis of the Semantic Differential Scale consisting of 24 adjectives evaluating a classroom environment. Teachers from Busan tended to rate higher in the uniqueness domain while female teachers scored higher in the domain of residential stability, respectively, compared to their counterparts. Overall, the teachers perceived their classrooms having no particular characteristics, but rated highly in terms of stability. In addition, it was found out that the teachers` requests for the improvement of a classroom environment were not so much as the increased size of a classroom as a reduced class size as well as educational facilities that are corresponding to a variety of instructional methods. In summary, this study confirmed that elementary school teachers` perceptions of a classroom environment varied according to such factors as sex, teaching career, grade of their concerned class, and class size.

A series of comparative analyses were carried out, revealing that the majority of the participating students perceived 25-30 as an optimum size for one class. Also, students in a relatively smaller class tended to show higher levels of satisfaction with school lives and with school and classroom facilities, more positive attitudes towards classroom atmosphere, and greater needs for peer interaction than did their counterparts. Furthermore, it was found out that the actual class size had to do with the students` perceptions of the relationships between school facilities and their levels of stress and pleasure at school.
