Family functionality has shown its relevance in the comprehensive development of adolescents, with school connectivity being a very important aspect. To determine the association between family functioning and school connectivity in Mexican high school adolescents, an analytical cross-sectional study was carried out in a census of 396 adolescents in a public high school in Mexico. The self-report of family functioning and the school connectedness scale were used, both with α > 0.84. χ2 and ANOVA were applied. The results show significant differences in conflict with shift (morning χ2 = 42.47 vs. evening χ2 = 40.35, F = 4.57, p = 0.033), and leadership with degree (1st χ2 = 8.14, 2nd χ2 = 8.97, 3rd χ2 = 8.90, F = 3.52, p = 0.030). Connectivity associated with school variables (p < 0.05). There are no differences or association between sex, age or qualifications with connectivity. Family functioning was associated in affective expression with school (χ2 = 3.77, p = 0.055) and in leadership with students (χ2 = 2.92, p = 0.05). It is concluded that the leadership of the parents and the affective expression of the family favors school connectivity between students and with their school
