Education has not only the role of offering students didactic knowledge but it also has the major role to educate the young generation towards their well-being and personal growth. The school is a place where children spend a considerable part of their time and get knowledge and learn to know themselves and those around them. So then is the duty of the school to take care of children and adolescents, to grow responsible person who will be active citizens in this global world. There are precisely the experiences in the school those who affect mostly in the future of the individual. A rapid intervention, starting in the early years, represents the most accurate means to develop among the new generation the attention towards the factors on which the individual and collective well-being depends on. Schools should be repositioned because it is no longer just a place of learning, with complete reference to the materials and curricular disciplines. Education has a responsibility to treat all areas containing personal life, emotional, intellectual, social, cultural and moral. School should assure students a professional training model to provide safe and existential horizons and worth directions.The educational and formative act of the school is very essential in favor of taking and putting into practice those knowledge and competencies that can lead to lifestyles oriented toward the well-being and the prevention of deviant behavior. The school's success in promoting psychological well-being of students lies in the fact that it will decide on the most part in the future success of our society.
