Abstract: Based on the responses of secondary school students recruited from 28 randomly selected schools in Hong Kong over 3 years, the relationships between perceived family functioning (i.e., family mutuality, harmony, and communication) and school competence as well as academic adjustment of young adolescents are examined in this chapter. Correlation analyses showed that family functioning dimensions at Time 1 were correlated with school competence and academic adjustment at Time 1 and Time 3. Multiple regression analyses showed that different dimensions of family functioning at Time 1 predicted different measures of school competence at Time 3. Similarly, family functioning measures at Time 1 predicted academic adjustment over time, but the perceived family functioning measures at Time 1 were unable to predict students’ perceived stress regarding the new secondary school curriculum at Time 3. The theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.
