A study was conducted in Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Perlis, Perlis to ascertain the level of stress experienced by teachers, the causes and management of stress. Data was collected by conducting a questionnaire on 79 respondents while an interview was conducted on the 5% population who was believed to show signs of stress in school. The data was analysed using t - test, one-way ANOVA, mean and 'crosstabulation' to ascertain the level of stress experienced by teachers. T - test and one-way ANOVA were used to test differences within each demographic factor on the stress level. Results of the research show that there is no significant differences between demography and teachers' stress at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Perlis. However there is significant differences between sexes and two of four stress factors studied namely 'teachers-student interaction' and 'school management and structure'. 'Crosstabulation' result from 35 stress items studied shows that 23.8% respondents experienced high level of stress (extreme stress), 46.0% respondents experienced moderate level of stress, 32.2% respondents experienced mild stress while 3.2% respondents experienced no stress at school. Respondents also cited 'workload' as the highest factor causing stress while 'school management and structure' was the lowest. The highest mean stress items are items which are related to student discipline such as noisiness and impoliteness. Besides that, administrators who always blame the teachers because of the discipline problems, lack of co-operation among the staff members, students disturbing teachers while they are teaching and co-curricular workload also found to be among the items which constribute the most stress. Respondents claimed that stress has affected their emotional stability, profession and their work performance. Strategies of stress management suggested by respondents include relaxation, time management and sharing their problems with colleagues.
