Introduction: Adolescence has a huge influence on the learning potential of students .Our purpose is to look for factors that impact Lebanese adolescents academic performance. Materials and Methods: A multiregional epidemiological national study from 18 schools during 2014-2015.Questionnaires were distributed to 2506 students 11-18 y.old. Internationally validated scores were used. School performance was evaluated subjectively and objectively. Results were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics. Results: Females had higher average (p<0.0001), lower BMI (p<0.001) and higher score on Depression scale (p=0.008). Reading (p<0.0001), doing homework (p=0.001) and praying (p=0.016) were factors influencing school performance positively. Cellphones (p=0.001), video games (p=0.011) and bedtime sports (p=0.013) negatively impact performance. Lack of sleep, sleep quality index, depression and self-esteem scores negatively influence average - p<0, 0001. Conclusion: Adolescents depression, self-esteem and sleep quality problems should be addressed in schools hoping to optimize adolescents school performance.
