 The study of integration processes, specifically focusing on the educational field, has reached a crucial stage with the emergence of the second generation. This paper focuses on the relation between a specific group of foreign adolescents, the so-called 1.5 generation, and schools. On the one hand, interviews and group discussions with students highlight how they build their sociointegration paths and, on the other hand, focus groups with teachers stress how schools try (or don’t try) to re-define themselves towards a more complex and heterogeneous school population.
