Summary/Abstract: The study is focused on social adaptation of pupils traveling from small towns and villages in Blagoevgrad region to study at schools in Blagoevgrad. The social adaptation is considered in two aspects: in personal aspect and in school aspect. The hypothesis of how sociocultural conditions influence each of the two aspects of the study is being checked. Empirical information is obtained by self-assessment survey of 51 pupils traveling to schools in Blagoevgrad. The results show absence of specific adaptation difficulties of the traveling pupils. The high Grade Point Average (GPA) of the traveling pupils fosters their social integration in the new school. It can be said that girls are more adaptable. Also, there are elements of the “effect of pupils’ assessment of teachers” concerning the objectivity and fairness of the latter in the assessment of the pupils` learning achievements.
