The teachers who taught fourth- and fifth-grade children in Tehsil Rawalpindi's public elementary schools were the study's target group. 200 teachers from 40 different schools made up the sample, which was selected through the multi-stage random sampling method. The data were collected, based on a five-point Likert scale questionnaire. The collected data were analyzed using suitable statistical techniques, to measure the significance of responses, using statistics like frequency, percentages, and Pearson's Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. The researcher concluded that there was a strong relationship found between Students' self-concept and the school's environment. It has been observed that students' self-concept was high when the school provided a strong socio-emotional environment. It is recommended that there is much need for creating awareness among stakeholders, teachers, and parents. Because it is necessary to develop the personality of children by providing them with a good socio-emotional environment.. Violence prevention in schools may also help in raising the socio-emotional environment of the school and it will enhance the self-concept of students. Every child has the right to be protected from harm and to be spared from inhuman or degrading punishments. It is the responsibility of teachers and parents to build positive self-concepts among children as it is integral to emotional well-being as well as associated with academic success.
