Summary/Abstract: The article describes selected theoretical perspectives on student school engagement. School engagement is a meta-construct including a wide spectrum of mental attitudes such as: the sense of belonging to a school, acceptance of the goals of schooling, psychological investment in an effort directed toward learning, understanding, or mastering the knowledge, skills, or crafts that academic work is intended to promote, as well as emotional involvement with school, including the student’s motivation to learn. Specific dimensions of student engagement were described as cognitive, affective and behavioral. School disengagement is a predictor of risk behavior, delinquency, proactive aggression, substance abuse, school drop-out syndrome and school burnout.
