This study explored the perceptions of Mexican teachers about their students social and intellectual potential. Participant teachers were from different educational levels and fields of study. A pencil and paper questionnaire was completed by 573 teachers. Questions explored perceptions about their student intellectual and social abilities which were compared by gender, grade level and academic ability. Results indicated no differences by gender or grade level. However, both intellectual and social abilities were perceived as higher in students who showed higher academic competency. These findings must argue that, in Mexico, there is now few differential perception of stu-dents due to gender and grade level, but that the level of academic competency continues to be a factor influencing the social and intellectual perceptions of the student.
