Enjoyment of school can be one of the factors which affect the young generations’ academic life and achievements in both, positive or negative way. This paper is a part of a PhD. thesis and analyses if there is any difference according to gender variable about the above mentioned factor and possible predictors of ‘Enjoyment of school’ variable. Results for the factor ‘Enjoyment of school’ may possibly fluctuate regarding mostly the ‘in school’ variables like, area, school building, facilities, school staff, teacher quality, teacher support, correct guidance, tuition fee, peer factor, class environment, class size, ’personal’ variables like age, gender, ethnicity, health, mental condition, physical appearance, ability, and ‘out-of school’ variables like distance, financial means, family background, family support and student’s personal performance. School-Family Interaction factor also can be mentioned in the ‘out-of school’ part because well-treated and well-informed parent’s attitude may affect student’s enjoyment disposition in positive way. Any of the mentioned variables’ impacts on student’s enjoyment of school can be investigated separately.
