Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore Learned Helplessness in underachieving adolescent students in a private school in Sharjah. This study investigates fundamental aspects of Learned Helplessness such as its relationship with underachievement, its symptoms, and support strategies. Data collection was done through document analysis, a self – report questionnaire and semi – structured interviews to elicit the viewpoints of participant students, teachers and supervisors on Learned Helplessness in underachieving students. The main findings of the study such as inefficacy, apathy, poor study strategies and lack of support were consistent with the theory and literature on Learned Helplessness. The research emphasizes the need for spreading awareness among educators for the purpose of early detection and effective intervention.
