Researches revealed that attitude varies with differences in religion, socio economic status, districts, literacy rate of blocks, and with available school infrastructure facilities. Attitude is formed by one’s perception of infrastructure. Principal component analysis explored 3 latent perceptions of school infrastructures as basic, supportive and activity based infrastructures. Students usually paid attention to basic (Classroom, blackboard, teaching, book, Mid-day meal), next supportive (Drinking water, Toilet, Friend, Book bank, Health checkup) and finally activity based (TLM, Games, Cultural programs) infrastructures. Attitude determines one’s motivation to use infrastructure. Infrastructure plays an important role for school attendance motivation, performance of students.
