This research aimed to build a predictor of stress for high school graduates of public schools. Sample composed of 620 students, mean age of 18 (SD = 1.98) years. Cross-sectional, quantitative, survey-type methodology. Main results: individuals belonging mainly to class B2 (27.9%) C1 (25.04%); stress revealed in 55.92% and in the resistance stage 49.43%. Predictors of statistical significance were: age, presence of smoking, class average and psychic domain of quality of life. It is concluded that the parsimonious model of prediction of stress in the school environment was validated internally with satisfactory accuracy. The scores present potential application and replication in programs of identification and prevention of stress in the school environment.
