The aim of the study was to describe student profiles associated with educational achievement from four sets of personal variables: psychological, academic, health, and technology use. A representative sample of middle school students from Baja California, Mexico, was given an ad hoc questionnaire and academic results were obtained from a standardized academic achievement test. Cluster analysis k-means allowed us to define two student profiles. Equal numbers of students were found in both groups, with Cluster 1 grouping high-achieving students and Cluster 2 those with a lower level of educational achievement. All of the personal variables help to describe and differentiate between the two groups, except for the number of times they have changed schools.
