 Introduction and Objectives: AIDS  is  the  acquired  syndrome  of  immunity  damage  caused  by  body  immunity   damaging  virus .  By  one  time  infection  people  will  be  infected  for all  of  their  lives  and  probably  will  miss  the  chance  of  living  because  of   disease  seeking  the  opportunities  and  using  the  weakness  of  the  body  immunity  system . Since  there  is  no  vaccination , medication  or  serum  for  treating  AIDS  and  there  has  been  no  step  further  than  controlling  stage , acknowledgment  of  people  especially  teenagers  about  the  ways  of  infection  and  going  through  religious  beliefs  is  the  only  way  to  prevent  it . for this  target  there  has  been  a  study  about  the  effects  of  education  and  knowledge  and  view  of  senior  students  in  Tehran  high schools . 

Materials & Methods: The  present  study  is  a   experimental  research  and  the  studied  community  were  all  high school  girls  of  Tehran  .  In  order  to  determine  the  mass  of  the  sample  there  was  a  primary   study  and  the  number  of  samples  was  determined  the  way  it  counted  present  the  studied  community . The samples  were  3200  high school  girls  chosen  based  on  interfering  random  system.  The data  source  were  the  questionnaires  which  were  completed  15  days  before  and  after  the  education . 

Results: Achievements  showed  that  there  is  a   meaningful  discrepancy  between  the  level  of  knowledge  before  and  after  the  acknowledgment (z=-7/14, p<0.05). The  acknowledgment  also  showed  to  make  meaningful  difference  in  the  statistics  (z= -3.426 , p<0.05) . According  the  results  of the  study  it  was brought  up  that  the  majority  of  the  students  had  a  medium  knowledge  about  AIDS  and  the  source  of  this  knowledge  for  majority  of  the  samples  (81%)  were  the  public  medias .                     

Conclusion: The  results  of  the  study  generally  showed  that  for  most  of  the  students  there  is  a  low  knowledge  of  AIDS . And  their  negative  attitude  toward  the  disease  implicated  the  importance  of  public  medias  and  modification  of  the  attitude  of  public  toward  the disease .
