The present study verifies the marked difference level in the stress level of the children enrolled in private and government schools and also analyse the various repercussions related to stress. This piece of research has shown a very interesting field to explore the etiology of stress. It gives a more comprehensive, scientific and complete explanation for the repercussions of student stress. The findings of the study can be considered for public policy and the design of training programmes tailored to the individual needs in assisting the school students to cope with current and future stress and thereby enhance their academic performance.
