The paper presents the results of studying the level of school anxiety among primary school juniorpupils (n=70), by using the data of a parent survey. The study showed that 71.4% of the children displayed personality traits that could identify 5 entities of behavioral disorders. It is noteworthy that the predominant types of behavior were irritability (44.5%), maladaptive responses (42.8%), and increased excitability (20.4%). The parent questionnaire survey could identify a group of children with increased anxiety that had not been previously established and needs to have a closer look due to the high risk of an anxious and neurotic trait type and to the negative impact on the intellectual development of a child and somatic well-being.
