In the present study, school engagement and metaphorical school perceptions of students were analyzed based on gender, school type and grade. The relationship between school engagement and school perception was also examined. 410 high school students from ten different schools participated in the study. The data were collected through the "Scale for School Engagement" and "Scale for School Perception". Data were analyzed with arithmetical mean, standard deviation, percentage, t-test, MANOVA and multivariate regression analysis techniques. Findings showed that participants' school engagement and positive school perception levels were in moderate level. Comparative analysis based on gender, school type and grade revealed significant differences in both variables. In addition, it was determined that metaphorical school perception predicted school engagement. Hence, it was concluded that improving positive school perception of students might increase their school engagement.
