School performance at age 16 for 6448 intercountry adoptees to Sweden was compared with that of siblings and majority population peers. The school performance of Korean-born adoptees was on a par with non-adopted peers, but non-Korean adoptees' school performance was lower, as was that of adoptees who were older at the time of adoption.
