In education it is important to celebrate all aspects of diversity, including different ways students learn. Addressing these diversities in the classroom is paramount for the success of every student. This research on learning styles may help in explaining the possible reasons for differences in students' achievement. The aim of this study was to investigate the learning style preferences based on gender, school level and students’ GPA. A questionnaire was completed by 269 middle and high school students to determine if their learning style preferences are auditory, visual or tactile. The results showed that students’ most preferred learning style is auditory on all three factors: gender, school level and their GPA, while there are certain differences when it comes to the second and third preferred learning style. Identification of the preferred learning styles may help instructors to differentiate the teaching process and may have positive impacts on obtaining and improving learning outcomes.
