The purpose of this study was to observe the difference, if any, on the early �teen boys students of two different type schools. Subjects of this study were one hundred fifty male Navodaya students of three age categories and similar number of age and height-weight-matched students from other than Navodoy schools (fifty students for each age group from each type of school). Six dimensions of self-concept, namely- behaviour, intellectual and school status, physical appearance and attributes, anxiety, popularity, and happiness and satisfaction were the criterion measures. Mean, standard deviation (SD) and ANOVA followed by Post-Hoc LSD and independent t-test were the statistics used for data interpretation. Significance difference (p0.05) was observed between Navodoy and other than Navodoy students in behaviour and happiness and satisfaction of 13-year, 14-year and 15-year age groups. Difference was also observed in intellectual and school status in 13-year and 15-year age groups but not in 14-year group. However, in physical appearance and attributes in all three age group, difference was not significant. Difference was observed in 13-year age group in of anxiety but not in 14-year and 15-year age group of two different schools. In popularity, difference was observed in 13-year and 15-year groups, but not in 14-year age group of two different schools.
