This Latvian study was of 120 teachers from three different schools: a general secondary school, a school specializing in the English language, and a lyceum school providing specialised education. There were also 240 students from forms 11 and 12 (17-18 years old). The research aimed to determine the self-identity of senior secondary school students, treating value orientations as the content-forming aspect of self-identity, and organising the educational process focused on the development of value-orientations and self-identity. The analysis of results showed that it is necessary to put more emphasis on moral aspects in the content of value orientations.
