Abstract: In this study, efficiency is proposed to assess school performance by using a non-parametric technique, namely data envelopment analysis. While shared vision (shared between principals and teachers) and sizes (class size and school size) are regarded as the important factors that affect student achievement, little research has been investigated into the relationship between shared vision, sizes and efficiency in Thailand. Derived from substantial literature, a model is proposed to investigate if seven-vision attributes, vision content (efficiency and size effect imaginaries), and sizes are associated with school performance. Hypotheses, future research directions and managerial implications are also discussed.
