Background/Objectives: This study aims to examine the relationship between family strength of female middle school students and their adjustment to school life. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The subcategories of Family Strength are made of 20 questions in 4 sections-communication among family members, the ability to solve problems, family bonds, and sharing value systems. Adaptation to school is composed of four subcategories-relationship with teachers, relationship with school friends, classes at school, and rules at school. The collected data was analyzed through descriptive statistics of SPSSWIN (ver. 18.0) program and the statistics technique of ANOVA, Pearson Correlation Coefficient. Findings: The total mark of family strength was 3.93±0.68, the total mark of adaptability to school was 3.30±0.49, and the total mark and sub-elements showed correlations. The result implies that sharing a value system within family is very important. Application/Improvements: The importance of family relationship should be acknowledged to share a value system, and various programs that connect family, school, and community should be devised to create a positive relationship.
