The COVID-19 pandemic caused disruptions in schooling and the closure of schools worldwide, how this has affected children's and youth's health and wellbeing is a current area of research. However, those who suffer a chronic or temporary disease may be attending hospital classrooms, and this scenario has received little attention in comparison to regular schools. The objective of this exploratory quantitative study focuses on exploring the quality of life and emotional well-being of students attending hospital classrooms. For this purpose, four Chilean hospital classrooms from different regions of the country were randomly selected. A total number of 248 students participated in the survey, each of whom filled out two online questionnaires. The findings show similar scores in children with mental illness and those with other health conditions. In comparison with one year before, students rate their general health as the same or somewhat better now, as well as manifesting an optimistic view of the future regarding the pandemic.
