The present study aimed at determining and examining high school first, second, third and fourth class grade students' attitudes towards context based learning approach with respect to the variables of gender, class grade and school. The study was carried out with a total of 5325 high school students in Turkey (n1(first class grade) = 1509, n2(second class grade)1265, n3(third class grade) = 1140, n4(fourth class grade) = 544; none: 867 Female: 2450, Male: 2866; none:9). In the study, Student Context based Approach Attitude Scale made up of 18 items, whose reliability and validity were calculated, was used as data collection tool. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive analysis, independent samples t-test and ANOVA found in the package software of SPSS 16. The results revealed that the students' general attitude mean score was 3.01 out of 5. The results obtained in the study are thought to be important as they not only help determine high school students' attitudes towards context based learning approach and identify the influence of certain variables on their attitudes but also cover but also cover all the class grades of high school. Moreover, it should be determined to how context based learning approach is applied in educational institutions by the governments.
