Understanding the dynamic of social relationships between peers in a school can provide guidance for strategic decision-making to improve these relationships. Sociograms-images of a particular moment of these relationships- are a useful tool for description, analysis and reflection. Through interviews with teaching staff and other professionals in the school, the use of sociograms was studied, based on the type of network structure in 12 primary-school courses. Analyzing social connections through the theory of networks reveals information not normally visible, and sociograms are not only useful tools to understand relational dynamics in the school, but also to make strategic programs of systemic actions to improve the school environment and to reflect on teachers' beliefs about relational dynamics in the classroom.
