Background and Objectives: In contemporary times, the concept of attachment to place has found considerable differences. Social scientists are heavily involved in the concepts of place and attachment to place. What happens to people's emotional connection to a place in a dynamic society? At the macro level, globalization theorists offer a considerable understanding of the effects of dynamics on place and social organization in a city. They put emphasis on how economic, social, political, and cultural changes, travel and migration increase connectivity between distant places. Environmental psychologists, social scientists, and geoanthropologists distinguish between dynamism and attachment to space, and see the two concepts as contradictory. In the argumentative view, attachment to place is a phenomenon that is in the form of individual, social and place-human relations. Attachment in educational spaces is one of the most important factors affecting student attendance and consequently the prosperity and dynamics of the educational environment. Paying attention to the needs of these people with regard to their physical conditions can make their presence more prominent in educational settings. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors affecting students' attachment feeling among high school students in Bojnourd. This research is an applied research in terms of purpose.
Methods: In this study, survey and correlational research were used. For this purpose, Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistical test was used to determine the normality of the distribution of research data and multiple linear regression and Pearson correlation tests were used to determine the relationship and severity and the relationship between independent and dependent variables.
Findings: Findings showed that the sense of identity variable has the highest correlation with the level of attachment feeling. Therefore, the level of attachment feeling among the research variables is affected by the level of sense of identity and its related indicators. The second variable with the Pearson correlation coefficient is 0463 social bonds. The attachment sense variable was ranked third with a coefficient of 0.444, with the highest correlation being the attachment feeling question, which was 0.500 and a mean of 3.17, and the least related to being missing for this place in the attachment feeling, which was a mean of 2. 31 represents this issue, with a mean of 2.61 for quitting this place in three schools.
Conclusion: Based on this, 37 indices were measured in 3 components. Summary of research results indicate that the components of sense of identity are the most important physical components affecting students' sense of attachment in educational spaces, respectively. Considering the correlation coefficients between the micro-indicators and the feeling of attachment, and to promote the sense of attachment to school, it is suggested to use architectural elements and shapes and volumes that identify the place until the sense of identity and finally the feeling of attachment is promoted. And significant components of the place are in the next ranks, in this process, preference for others and offering the school to others in the second stage through the meaning of place affects the attachment to the place.
