  3. Abstract:
    Modern life is full of stress especially for those who are in service. Workplace often tends to have challenges and coupled with personal life, can cause stress to anyone. This stress can have disastrous consequences both for the individual as well as for the organization. It becomes necessary to understand the factors that contribute to persons’ stress levels and devise ways to overcome them. Researchers have been repeatedly making attempts to identify and explain these things and sufficient literature exists on the subject.
    \r\nObjective: This paper attempts to study the stress level of schools teachers and rank the factors that lead to such stress.
    \r\nMethodology: The sample size was 125 and a reliable, validated questionnaire was administered. The identified factors were tanked using Friedmann Test and co relations were made between age and gender with respect to the factors causing stress. Conclusions: The stress level among the teachers is high and workload is the biggest reason followed by job satisfaction that leads to stress. Further Scope: The study can be extended with a larger sample size and a different universe.
