Objective: to categorize victimization by bullying and cyberbullying in adolescents. Method: this is a quantitative, descriptive, exploratory, cross-sectional study with adolescent students from two public schools and two private schools that answered a questionnaire, then the Multidimentional Peer Victimation Scale instrument was used, adapted to measure bullying. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used to compare means and Pearson's correlation to relate the variables studied with the occurrences of victimization. Results: it is revealed that approximately 78% of school students reported at least one occurrence of bullying in the last six months and 17% suffered half of the total victimizations in the same period. Significant differences were shown by the mean of bullying between schools, and the comparison with data in the literature indicated concern in the moderate and severe degrees. Conclusion: it is concluded that the victimization classifications were consistent with the literature. Differences in the characteristics of the victims were observed in different educational contexts with the urgency of interdisciplinary actions against bullying. Descriptors: Bullying; Cyberbullying; Education; Adolescent Behavior; Students; Public Health.
