Adolescence is the time of growing up from childhood to adulthood. It is a period of physiological and mental growth. However, it is more than that. In another word, it is a time for the maturing of mind as well as behaviour. This paper seeks to investigate the emotional intelligence of adolescent students with respect to the type of school, area, and gender. The study was conducted on 200 adolescents (100 boys100 girls) studying in senior secondary schools selected purposively from East Singhbhum, Jharkhand. Their ages range from 16 to 20 years. Emotional Intelligence Inventory by Mangal and Mangal (2004) was used to collect the necessary data.

Results showed that secondary school students differed significantly in terms of the nature of school and gender on emotional intelligence.
