Family and school represent the most significant microsystems for adolescents. School experience and parent-adolescent relationship are associated with migrants’ ability of adaptation; moreover the intersystemic agreement between family and school has been identified as an important health factor. This contribution analyses home-school relationship as perceived by 177 Italians, 175 migrants from East European countries and 83 migrants from South America. This relation is analyzed by highlighting the association with wellness and social support. According to the literature, we found a correlation between social support and school success. Moreover, in agreement with the model of partnership, it is assumed that higher levels of conflict between home and school reflect lower well-being.

Keywords: Adolescence, migration, family-school relationship, self-esteem, well-being, social support.
