The current study investigated how public secondary school students’ Big Five personality traits vary from private school students. 135 secondary school students from Mainland China participated in filling out the questionnaires and three of them were invited to complete a one-to-one semi-structured interview. According to data analysis, the public secondary school students’ mean score in Conscientiousness is significantly higher than that achieved by private school students, but in Agreeableness and Neuroticism, their mean scores are substantially lower. With answers presented by the interviewees, the explanations for why such differences appeared are discussed. The result of current study can be used as guidelines for intervening specific behaviors of secondary school students.
