The author sets the goal to identify trends in the forecasts and the attitude towards the innovative model of the profile high school in different social groups which will allow not only to appreciate the idea of education reform in the public consciousness, but also to offer the necessary adjustments while implementing the model. It is analysed in the article the specificity of the forecasts and the system of attitude towards the innovative model of the profile in high school. The results presented predictions of SS in the implementation of profiling in grades 10-12. The study revealed significant differences in predictions and attitudes towards innovative changes in the upper school in the adult group (primary and secondary school teachers and parents of students) and in the youth group (senior pupils). The revealed trends in the forecasts and attitudes of teachers, parents of students and senior pupils can be divided into socially-oriented, psychological and pedagogical. It is devoted that changes in negative, ambivalent forecasts and attitudes occur in the process of social discussion using methods for creating a positive image of education reform. The urgency of further social dialogue on questions of profile orientation, pre-professional training, retraining and professional development of teachers, and the main content of profile training is unconditional.
