A perfectionism of scientific and pedagogical staff of high school is one of the topical. An access to the Bologna Process and to the European educational research environment demands from teachers of high school new requirements. These factors demand an achievement of new heights, a desire to be the best, an obtaining success by focusing on avoiding failure. In the investigation of perfectionism of teachers of high school participated 1068 persons. “The Big Three Perfectionism Scale” of M. Smith, D.Saklofske, J. Stoeber, S.Sherry was used in investigation. In the article, four main approaches to perfectionism are described: as a need for self-improvement, as a mindset of personality, as a style of life, as a personal trait. It is shown that teachers of high school know well about the perfectionism and they define it as a pursuance of ideal; a pursuance of doing everything in the best way; a belief that an ideal can and should be achieved; a desire for self-improvement and improvement of other people; as a human disease, in which everything should be perfect. Due to “The Big Three Perfectionism Scale”, a significant number of teachers of high school has average and high levels of perfectionism of personality. According to the results of ANOVA, it is established that the level of "self-oriented perfectionism" depends on gender and the presence and number of children; "self-critical perfectionism", "entitlement" and "hypercriticism" depends on age and gender of respondents; "concern over mistakes" depends on gender and marital status; "narcissistic perfectionism" and "other oriented perfectionism" depends on age, gender and marital status of respondents. The author describes such characteristics of professional activity, which provoke the perfectionism of personality of high school teachers: openness, activity and dynamism, adaptability, communicability, creativity, professional competence, independence, professional mobility, job satisfaction etc.
