For the purpose of investigating conditions associated with child´s adjustment to Elementary School-EF, we evaluated academic achievement, social skills, behavior problems and stress, in association with years in preschool-EI, quality of EF, socioeconomic level - NSE, and gender. Participants were 100 boys and 86 girls in 1st year of EF, mean age 6.7 years. The teachers completed the Social Skills Rating System. Children answered Prova Brasil, Scale of Child Stress and Inventory of School Stressors. Group comparisons showed that years in EI and quality of EF were associated with academic achievement. By means of regression models, different indicators of adaptation to EF varied in function of EF quality measures, gender, and NSE.

Keywords : Elementary school; Academic achievement; Social skills; Behavior problems; Stress.
