The purpose of this research is to identify the students' interest in vocational schools as the dimension of being in a well-being model school. A questionnaire was used to measure students' subjective perceptions. Suitability Vocational interests are assessed using a standardized test known as a modified vocational interest scale from the SDS (Self-directed search). Eleven vocational schools in Indonesia, comprising of 362 students from the manufacturing program contributed in the survey. The computer-based statistical data analysis system was used to examine the raw data collection. The results showed that 49% of the students felt satisfied and enjoyed the learning process they followed at school. Considering the students' interest in the vocational school, which conforms to the personality typology, 41% of the students were confirmed positively. The two statistic figures suggest that when a student has strong motivation and has a high interest in the vocational school, they feel positive about the education process. Besides student also enjoy and follow the system accordingly. The development of well-being in school can then be shaped. This paper provides the implementation of a well-being model to cater to the education process, considering the conformance of students' interest in their selected course programs in vocational schools.
