Todo el alumnado se enfrenta a estresores que pueden influir negativamente en su rendimiento académico; sin embargo, los estudiantes inmigrantes se enfrentan a algunos propios, derivados de su estatus, que influyen negativamente en su rendimiento académico y en su salud mental. A pesar de ello, las escuelas cuentan con pocos medios para ayudarles a superar estas situaciones. Presentamos un estudio descriptivo de la “Social Support Pilot Initiative”, un proyecto piloto de intervención psicosocial, con alumnos migrantes, que muestra que, proveer a esta población de apoyo socioemocional en sus centros educativos, mejora los resultados académicos.
