Constructivist learning environments are those in which individuals absorb knowledge by conducting in-depth research and analysis. In these environments, the individuals are aware of why and how to learn the information, realize their mistakes by testing the knowledge they have learned before and reach new information by correcting these mistakes. The purpose of this research is to determine the secondary school students’ levels of perception about constructivist learning environments in terms of different variables (gender, access to a suitable place to study, grade level, and mother and father educational attainment). The research was held in the central district of a province in the Central Anatolia Region in the spring semester of the 2018-2019 academic year. The study group of the research, selected on voluntary basis with simple random method, consists of 205 students; 100 male and 105 female, who continue their education in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades of a secondary school affiliated to the Ministry of National Education. The results of the research revealed that students have a moderate constructivist learning environment perception. It was found that there was no statistically significant difference in their perceptions in terms of gender and grade level.
