In this paper the authors present the results of their research carried out within the international project on the integration of youth, which was carried out in cooperation with the University of Tübingen for many years (Jugend zwischen Ausgrenzung und Integration. Theorien und Methoden eines internationalen Projekts). The data presented here are the result of the application of qualitative methods of analysis – focus groups analysis – applied in two schools in a part of the city of Zagreb – in a primary and in a secondary school. The main goal of the research was to establish potential differences in the aspects of pupil’s integration in two schools – primary and secondary. The results indicated that major differences between these two groups of pupils were not present in the respect to the types of schools as well as to the ways of integration. The research results also confirmed that the expected relations in the processes of marginalization and stigmatisation of certain pupils are much more connected and affiliated with the social origins and social standings of their parents – and of the pupils themselves – than with any other -specific- characteristic and-or variable that might be found among the pupils.
