This study with 426 adolescents of Elementary Education I from public schools in Goiânia (Brazil) aimed to assess the relationship between social support and victimization, school performance and reproval. The results showed negative correlations between victimization and performance in different disciplines and social support and victimization. The boys presented less social support and more disapproval than the girls. Social support proved to be a protective factor for victimization and for school performance. The results indicate the vulnerability of male students, since they are the ones that are reproved more and have less perceived social support.
