Abstract

Introduction: Adolescence is a stage of significant physical, emotional, and cognitive changes, where young people face numerous challenges in their daily lives, especially in the educational environment. In this context, self-concept can be a determining factor in how adolescents approach these challenges and meet academic demands.
Objective: To determine the level of self-concept in a sample of Peruvian secondary education students.
Methods: Quantitative, non-experimental, and cross-sectional descriptive study. The sample consisted of 125 students of both genders who were administered the AF-5 Self-Concept Scale, an instrument with adequate psychometric properties. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS version 25 software. A descriptive analysis of the variable and dimensions was performed, focusing on calculating their percentage distributions.
Results: The self-concept of 52% of students was at a regular level, 38.4% at a high level, 5.6% at a very high level, and 4% at a low level. This means that most students recognize some strengths in themselves, but they are also aware of their limitations and areas in which they could improve, a situation that could serve as a solid foundation for working on their personal and academic development.
Conclusions: The level of self-concept characterizing a sample of Peruvian secondary education students was regular. Therefore, it is recommended to implement strategies aimed at strengthening and improving their perception of themselves.
