Schools are considered to have a pivotal role in socio emotional development of students. The importance of school in an adolescent’s life increases not only because of amount of time spent by adolescent within schools, but, also by relations developed by teachers and peers within schools. These experiences have a predictive role in determining the success of students later in life. High sense of school connectedness (SC) among students also predict fewer behavioral problems. It is considered to be a protective factor whose importance enhances manifold because of empirical evidences highlighting it as a powerful predictor of health and academic outcome of a student. Quality environment at school fosters a sense of belongingness, relatedness, and connectedness towards the institution; which is considered to be a predictive factor for academic success and fewer behavioral problems. The objective of study was to explore relationship between peer victimization (PV), school connectedness (SC) and mental wellbeing (MWB) among adolescents. It also aimed to explore the differences based on gender and status of school across study variables. The findings will be shared during the seminar.
