Adolescents as students spend their times more in school, so interaction with people in school could affect their socio-emotional development. In achieving academic achievement, the teacher has a significant role for them. Teacher gives expectation based on students' behavior and attitude in class. Based on previous studies, different teacher expectation towards students could be one of the risk factors that trigger common adolescents' mental health problem, anxiety. This study tried to investigate the relationship between anxiety and perceived teacher expectation on high school students in Jakarta. This study used The Hopkins Symptom Checklist (HSCL-25) to measure anxiety and Expectations for Student Achievement (ESA) Related Teacher Practices subscale to measure perceived teacher expectation. This one-shot study conducted in five high schools in five district areas of Jakarta and 764 first grade high school students participated. The result indicated that there is no relationship between anxiety and perceived teacher expectation on high school students in Jakarta. This finding revealed that teacher’s expectation is not the risk factor of high school students’ high anxiety in Jakarta. Therefore, other school-based risk factors should be investigated in the future to figure out the threat of adolescents’ mental health.
