This study looked at classroom environment factors that influenced the dropout process of secondary school students in Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon. The study focused specifically on how classroom disciplinary actions/measures influenced the school dropout process as well as how classroom climate kept students out of class and eventual school dropout. A self-constructed questionnaire was used to collect data from students. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis with the aid of the Statistical Package for social Sciences (SPSS)version 21. Pearson Product moment Correlation was used to test the hypotheses at a 0.05 level of significance. The findings from the study showed that there is a significant relationship between the application harsh disciplinary measures and the dropout process of students, and that there is a relationship between classroom climate and the dropout process of students. It was therefore concluded that classroom environment factors influenced the school dropout process. Based on these findings, it was recommended that student should be oriented to understand how to relate with teachers in order to avoid discipline measures that could push them out of school. Teachers should also create an enabling classroom environment to eliminate tension/anxiety among students It was also recommended that school counsellors, social workers as well as the administrators should monitor the relationship characteristics of teachers and students in order to help them relate properly so as to avoid tension and eventual school dropout.
