School adjustment is the degree of school acculturation required or adaptations necessitated for maximizing the educational fit between students' unique characteristics and the distinct nature and requirements of learning environments. Indeed, a student's school adjustment depends on the match between his or her competencies and needs and the demands of the school environment. School adjustment may fluctuate across schools and years or across different domains or classrooms within the same year and is influenced by a myriad of complex and interconnected factors.
