This survey investigated the relationship between the level of education and enviornmnetal knowledge as well the relationship between environmental knowledge and environmentally responsible behavior among high school students in Northern areas of Iran. Environmental scientists believe that there is a relationship between environmental knowledge and environmentally significant behavior, which forms the basic hypothesis of this research. Survey method was used to conduct the research and by applying simple random sampling method, 751 students were chosen from three capial cities of Golestan, Gilan and Mazandran. The survey results showed that the partiupants possessed low level of environmental knowledge, while they exhibited high level of environmentally- appropriate behavior. It also showed that there was no significant relationship between level of education and environmental knowledge, which needs to be explained. The paper continues to explain the probale reasons for this unexpected result.
