School, i.e. the classroom, represents one of the first institutionalized forms of the student’s introduction into the society. It is known (according to Elites theory) that every society is made of two main groups: mass (majority) and elite (minority). Every classroom, which represents a society on a small scale, has its own classroom elite. Talented students acquire a specific status among the society (classroom) group with their superior personal traits. The aim of this paper is to define the characteristics of the students that represent the class elite as well as to determine the sociometric status of the talented student in the society (classroom) environment. The empirical part of this paper will question teachers’ attitudes concerning the existence of class elite in regards of the status of talented individuals. The structure of the talented individuals’ class will be determined through sociometric procedure.
