Summary/Abstract: School success is the goal of many students and parents. This paper aims to study the issue of school success in terms of expectations and academic achievement and is structured in two parts. The first part deals with aspects of school success and addresses topics such as school performance, school success, school failure, school evaluation, and motivational factors. School performance, understood as the result of all student activities and expressed through grades, is different from school achievement, which is oriented towards its value. Academic achievement depends on motivational factors, the influence and involvement of parents in the school life of the student, how the student relates to the environment, and educational influences. The second part of the paper addresses the issue of students’ and parents’ expectations regarding academic results. Differences or similarities between these expectations can lead to school success and academic achievement. The expectation-value theory highlights the catalytic effect of expectations, as well as the reciprocity of the relationship between parents' expectations and students' academic achievement.
