The self-concept of pre-adolescent children of Aruba

In this paper the findings of a survey conducted on the self-concept of pre-adolescent children in Aruba are presented. The survey was conducted in September 2012 and involved all children attending 4th, 5th, and 6th grade of primary school. The information collected revealed that, overall, pre-adolescent children in Aruba have a relatively high self-concept, particularly where the non-academic aspects of self-concept are concerned. However, a number of important trends were observed.
