The descriptive research design was used to find out difference in public and private sector secondary school students on academic achievement in mathematics, mathematics’ engagement and self-regulation in students learning. Three research instruments were used in present survey study. Students’ engagement in mathematics classroom, a questionnaire on self-regulated learning, mathematics achievement test were used to investigate the impact of self-regulated learning on students’ achievement and engagement in mathematics classroom in public and private sector secondary schools. By using proportionate random sampling technique, eighty schools were selected from the list of schools taken from internet sources.. Both descriptive (Mean Score) and inferential statistics (t-test) were employed. Findings of the study were obtained by comparing self-regulation, engagement and mathematics achievement that in private secondary school students were better than public sector secondary schools.
