Introduction: During the school stage of the students in their schools different personal and academic activities have a decisive influence on the personal and on the performance variables. Therefore, the study of variables such as emotional intelligence, engagement and academic performance will help to understand the relationships between these constructs. The objective of this paper was to analyze the relationship between emotional intelligence, academic engagement and school performance in a sample of 3,512 adolescent students belonging to 18 compulsory secondary education schools. Method: The instruments used the Spanish versions of the Traid Meta-Mood Scale-24 (TMMS-24), the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale-Student (UWES-S) and the school performance was quantified through the average mark of their student. Results: The results showed positive relations of school performance with academic engagement and emotional intelligence, except with emotional perception, in turn, as a predictive value of the dedication to academic tasks. Discussion or Conclusion: The need to promote adaptive behaviors in the classroom as facilitators of positive attitudes for school performance and social development of students was revealed.
