Abstract: The experimental model of developing desirable student qualities is consistent and appropriate in providing desirable student qualities within the projected success level. The model helps create innovations in knowledge management, analysis of current educational situations, team preparation, motivation techniques, awareness, participation in evaluations, participation in planning processes, applying the processes to create development, follow up assessments and the exchange of knowledge. The success of the model is a combination of experimental models and successful experience of previous methods such as participation strategies, learning from practices, social movements and public communication programs and most important is the development of desirable student qualities. The overall evaluations from teachers, students and parents are highly positive to the results of desired student qualities that were obtained from the program. Students gained discipline towards themselves and to others, the students responsibilities were increased, skills in working as a team were elevated and the program helped students to enjoy reading. The teachers, students and parents also agreed that the positive results stem from the success of the 4 strategies implemented, which are strategies in building participation, strategies to create learning systems, strategy in using public communication mediums and strategy in using social developments. These strategies along with other supportive activities, which were continuously carried out, greatly improved the activities that were ineffective or processes that lacked continuation.
