This research aim is to compare the anthropometric growth and development of children in primary school, between group of lower classes (1st to 3rd grade) and upper classes (4th to 6th grade), in terms of the speed and magnitude of its changes in stature, circumference and wide. The data is gathered from children’s anthropometric measures in the respective grades and the average of its alteration are measured by combining the average score of anthropometric size change both from the lower grade group and the upper grade group. It is estimated that the speed of change depicted the growth pattern in children between the different groups. The measurement of stature, weight, breadth of Biacromial and Bicristal, as well as the circumference of head and limbs is carried out using anthropometric scales. The data have shown that the speed of growth of the upper classes group is faster than the lower classes group. The scrutiny trace to the theory indicated that this tendency is all brought about and influenced by the onset of growth spurt in the period adolescence.
