This research is to redefine the concept of Good School and to validate an effective Good Secondary School Scale in Kyung-gi Province and Seoul. As statistical methods, SPSS 13.0 and AMOS 5.0 were used. Item Analysis and Exploratory Factor Analysis(EFA) were conducted to test the reliability of items and the factor structure. And Confirmatory Factor Analysis(CFA) was conducted to test the validity and fitness of the Good School Scale. The outcomes are as follows: First, six factors(school environment, curriculum, teacher, school-based management system, director) will increase the good schooling effectiveness. Second, As a result of Confirmatory Factor Analysis(CFA), the goodness of fit indices(GFI AGFI, CFI, RMSEA) demonstrate statistically significance and fitness of the model. The final Good School Scale supports 6 Good School Factors obtained in main test. Therefore, we can say that this scale can be used as a valid instrument to measure a real Good Schooling Effectiveness at the secondary school situation in Korea.
