This study investigates the relationship between the natural environment, learning efficiency, and demographic factors among participants in an educational context. The primary objective is to discern the influence of the natural environment on learning efficiency and to analyze how demographic variables shape these perceptions. The study employs a quantitative analysis of survey data. The sample comprises 350 participants, predominantly parents, females, aged 36 to 45, and possessing a college degree. The study reveals that the majority of respondents, particularly parents, females, and individuals with a college degree, exhibit more favorable assessments of the natural environment. Academic and physical dimensions receive the highest mean scores, indicating robust positive perceptions. However, the social dimension, while still in the realm of agreement, scores lower, suggesting areas for improvement in fostering positive social interactions. Similarly, the cognitive and emotional dimensions of learning efficiency receive positive evaluations, with the social and emotional dimensions indicating potential areas for enhancement. Significantly, there is a moderate direct correlation between the natural environment and learning efficiency. It underscores the importance of creating and maintaining positive learning environments to improve overall educational outcomes. The study contributes to professional practice by guiding educators and administrators in developing targeted strategies for enhancing the learning experience. Recommendations include fostering social interactions, implementing social-emotional learning initiatives, and optimizing natural surroundings. Theoretical implications center on the importance of considering demographic variables in understanding perceptions, while managerial implications emphasize the need for continuous improvement and collaborative communication between stakeholders. Scholars and practitioners can draw insights from the study to inform evidence-based educational practices and policies, promoting a more effective and inclusive learning environment.
