This study examined students’ victimization experiences in schools. It advances the concept of school burnout for students who perceive school as a stress factor. This study aims to determine the relationship between students’ peer victimization experiences, school burnout and parental monitoring. These results are thought to contribute the measures to be taken to make schools meaningful and safer places for students. The study group consisted of 224 middle school students in the cities of Malatya and Kahramanmara?. The Second Stage Students School Burnout Scale (SSSSBS), the Parental Monitoring Scale and the Traditional Peer Victimization Scales were used in the study. Descriptive statistics such as arithmetic means, medians, standard deviations and correlation coefficients were used for data analysis. The results of the study showed that the students’ scores of victimization increase as their scores of being victims increase. The fear of and cowering from victimization scores were lower for the students with higher scores for parental monitoring. The scores for being exposed to verbal victimization increase as the scores for burnout due to school activities and burnout due to family increase. However, the scores of being exposed to physical victimization decrease as the burnout due to loss of interest in school increase.
