This study examined the perception of secondary school students on the condition of their classroom physical learning environment and its impact on their learning and motivation. Four research questions were asked and answered using descriptive statistics while three hypotheses were
formulated and tested using t-test statistics at 0.05 level of significance. Findings emerging from data analysis revealed that private school students differed significantly in their perception on the condition of their classroom physical learning environment than public school students.
There was no significant difference between the perception of male and female students on the condition of their classroom physical learning environment. A significant difference existed between the perception of urban and rural school students on the condition of their classroom physical
learning environment. The finding further revealed that the condition of classroom physical learning environment had great impact on students' learning and motivation including the motivation to actively participate in academic activities; it can influence their personal behavior and their
school attendance. The study concluded by recommending that government and other education stakeholders should give priority attention to creating positive learning environment in schools for students' successful learning and academic development.
