This study examines four hypotheses to predict dropping out and early school leaving among female students at secondary schools. These hypotheses include full academic achievement and direct effects related to school experience, family experience, peer relationships, beliefs and academic self esteem. It is the main goal of this study to predict the early leaving of school girls and the reasons behind it. Our sample in this study includes 149 female students in West Azarbayjan province who completed their secondary school and succeeded to find their ways to high school and 156 who left secondary school and failed to complete their education.
