Numerous researches have shown that the high school pupils, whose adolescence is coming to an end, are in a very delicate choice situation. The peculiarity of their personal status enables the environment to exert influence on them and if possible to model their attitudes towards personal interests, thus, in a way, guiding them. That is why, each research into this population which aims to further their development and model a better quality future, is welcome in any form, and that is why that population is the topic of this paper. Taking into consideration that in the contemporary world, there is a general tendency to increase the level of education and emphasize the importance of professionalism in all walks of life,  and on the other hand, there is a tendency to amplify the construction of different facilities, the issue tackled in this paper is how to define the relation between the education-professional status and sports buildings in the grammar high school students population in order to recognize the dynamic relations of those variables so as to possibly offer some conclusions and consequently adequate suggestions and upbringing-education guidelines. To resolve the issue, we used a sample of 400 pupils from the first to the fourth grade of the grammar school, described with 8 variables describing the education and professional status and 3 variables describing the sports facilities. The data were collected via a survey (author: Danijela Bonancin). After the normalization, a classic canonical correlational analysis was performed so as to establish linear combinations between the two sets of variables. The results obtained indicate the existence of two out of the possible three canonical factors, that is, two ways of linking the sets whereby one of them is somewhat more prominent. The results show an obvious existence of conservatism, social egoism, perhaps even selfishness among the existing population. Since some other researches showed that girls of the same age and from the same area were inclined to learning and changing, and being aware of that, they have a more positive opinion, the results of this paper can be explained to some extent by the mode of thinking prevailing in the surveyed community where maybe the sons – the heirs are placed on the pedestal and perhaps glorified a bit too much. It is likely that male children are led by the system towards the goal without inciting them to fight for it on their own. That is why they do not want change, they do not want to study, and as a consequence of that, they want it all for themselves.


Key words: education, conservatism, egoism, sports objects, canonical analysis.
