The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a correlation between fifth grade students’ perceptions of the relationship with their teacher and their academic achievement. This was a correlation research design. The academic achievement measurement tool was the Anne Arundel County public school report card, specifically the students’ first and second marking period reading and math grades. This study also involved use of a questionnaire survey where students were asked to rate their relationship with their teacher. These results were then compared to their grades to look for a correlation between student achievement and the perception of their relationship with their teacher.
