In Korea, the "Record of School Life", which is a record of school students kept by the teachers who are directly in charge of them, can be used as a convenient tool for surveying and evaluating school functioning in psychiatric patients. We performed this study in order to determine whether there were any differences in the school function in the Record of School Life between patients with schizophrenia and patients with neurotic disorders. Using the Records of School Life of patients with schizophrenia and neurotic disorders, we examined the differences in the descriptions made by teachers of these two categories of subjects during their school years. Since the subjects with schizophrenia had more check marks than those with neurotic disorders in three of the eight negative items, their teachers regarded them as having more negative traits. Herein, we report that male subjects with schizophrenia with early onset show more eccentric features than subjects with neurotic disorders, using a relatively standardized and simple tool, the Record of School Life.

Key words   Schizophrenia;School functioning;Record of school life.
