The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship between violence and academic achievement, two of the most important problems in Secondary Education in Spain. Participants were 881 students 14-18 years old (M= 15.20, SD= 0.901) from 6 public centers of Secondary Education. Results indicate that men show more prevalence in antisocial behavior, increasing with age and school year. Failure in academic achievement was associate to antisocial and delinquent behaviors. Also, the educational level of mothers was related to the presence of antisocial behavior.
