In today's society, between one-second and one-third of adolescents have problems with self-esteem, especially in their early teens. Since self-esteem affects academic achievement from elementary school to the end of the academic year, there is considerable evidence that there is a relationship between low self-esteem and depression, academic decline, and even disruptive school membership. They found that high self-esteem with academic achievement and job success on the one hand and the relationship between low self-esteem with academic failure, depression, anxiety, violence, and drug abuse on the other hand confirmed that having an Iranian-standard questionnaire was necessary. In this study, psychometric properties (reliability and validity) of Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale Questionnaire were investigated. A sample group of three districts of education 2, 4 and 21 with a sample size of 300 were selected through multi-stage cluster sampling from boys' high schools in Tehran. Students responded to the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale Questionnaire. The questionnaire consisted of 10 questions that assessed the overall factor of feeling valued. Sampling adequacy index was 0.83 and determinant = 0.001, respectively. Our results showed that the Rosenberg self-esteem questionnaire included two factors of positive self-esteem and negative self-esteem. 47% of self-esteem is explained by these two factors.
