The paper is an attempt at answering the question of what are the possible education paths and possibilities of their realization in countryside middle schools; who supports the adolescent; how the future is planned along with the conditions necessary to succeed. A rarely discussed issue of extraschool activities, realized mainly out of school, is also touched upon, as is the influence of such activities on undertaken decisions. Informal activities in the local community of the middle schooler, which influence some of his/her decisions as well as formal and informal relations, appear important. The choice of a school is, after all, a significant bond on the path to adulthood, hence it should be conscious and supported by the family, who are not always able to properly advise the young person.
