Purpose: To create a growth mindset, it is necessary to understand the school mindset. Only then will the administration be able to develop and improve the school's culture. The "What's My School Mindset?" WMSM survey is now frequently utilised in schools to better understand student attitudes and which elements need to be improved. Therefore, it is aimed to carry out this research in my region so that it becomes standard in Asian school culture. 

Methodology: Teachers and school officials from a private school in Karachi's District South participated in this study. A total of 125 faculty members were on staff, including sports staff and visiting academics. The 20-item Likert-style measure in the WMSM tool asks participants to assess things on a scale based on their level of agreement. This exploratory study used SPSS to do association analysis using multicultural relevant, organisational learning factors from the literature that were found to influence superior school results to evaluate the content validity of the school growth mindset construct.  

Findings: This study discovered that there is no significant variation in fixed mentality teaching levels among groups. However, according to the instruction level, there is a mean difference between the growing and fixed mindsets. The correlation test was used to look at how the variables of instruction level, growth mindset, and fixed mentality interacted. Because the significance value was more than the 0.05 bench mark value, the Pearson correlation demonstrated that there is no statistically significant link between teaching level, growth mindset, and fixed mentality. The hypothesis of this study was rejected based on these findings. The backdrop of school growth mentality, the invention of the What's My School Mindset? Test and the theoretical foundation of learning organisation theory are all discussed in detail.
