Abstract: The aim is to compare self-assessed school satisfaction of three groups within two populations of Year 10 students in Iceland. They were evaluated at two separate administrations, the former in year 2010 (age 14 to 18 years, M=15.98, SD=0.25), and the latter in year 2014 (age 14 to 18 years, M=16.0, SD=0.19). The groups are classified according to romantic and/or sexual attraction and/or sexual activity and are identified as: (a) unknown, (b) heterosexual, and, (c) non- heterosexual. Data derived from two sets of survey collections (2010 and 2014) from the Icelandic part of the Health Behavior in School-aged Children (HBSC), initiated by the World Health organization (WHO) ... Participation for both implementations was between 80 and 90% of the whole cohorts, with 91% boys and 94% girls identified as heterosexual year 2010 and 90% of boys and 89% of girls identified as heterosexual year 2014. School satisfaction is compared across the three groups in both populations (2010 and 2014). Two questions included in the 2014 survey only, further explaining differences between the three identified groups, one referring to students' attitudes towards their teachers and the other concerning class periods. Answers to both questions are rated on a 5 point Likert scale.
