The purpose of this descriptive survey study was to measure, from the perspective of teachers and administrators, the level of school violence among secondary-level students in all schools in Al-Qasr Directorate of Education in Kerak, Jordan. Both gender and experience were used as the variables of this study. An 18-item questionnaire was developed and distributed to school teachers and school administrators. A total number of (216) participants completed the survey questionnaire. Findings showed that the degree of school violence was moderate. However, the results from the viewpoint of teachers highlighted an important association between school violence and gender (but not experience), whereas there was no link between school violence and either gender or experience from the administrators’ point of view. The study recommended emphasizing the role the school administrators and teachers play in reducing the phenomenon of school violence.
