The relationship between school achievement, health status and health behaviour of school-aged children is an intriguing and important research issue that has equally concerned researchers within an educational context as well as researchers in public health. Previous studies have shown the existence of substantial positive correlations between school achievement and different aspects of health (Koivusita et al., 2006.; DeSocio & Hootman, 2004), where students with poorer health status, pronounced chronic diseases, or evident health-risk behaviours have lower school achievement. On the other hand, some authors state that good school achievement is a very reliable indicator of youths’ health and that they represent a good sign of overall well-being and students’ happiness (Basch, 2010; Hanson, Austin, Lee-Bayha, 2003). In the present research, we wanted to investigate the relationship between self-rated health of school-aged children with their school achievement in Croatian schools.
