The lack of education towards contraceptive usage contributed an influence on the student’s knowledge and their attitude on how they perceive sexual education in a health allied focused school. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the correlation between the level and attitude toward contraceptive use among the Grade 12 Senior High Schools students at De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. A descriptive correlational method was used to describe, determine, and interpret the correlation between students’ knowledge and attitude. Furthermore, the Stratified Random Sampling Technique was utilized to gather a total of 200 respondents to participate in this quantitative study. Adaptation from multiple sources and the use of Likert scale is applied to formulate a suitable research instrument. Out of 200 respondents, 63.5% are "slightly knowledgeable" about contraceptive use, whereas 70% had a "positive" attitude towards contraceptive use. Meanwhile, the overall level of their knowledge shows that they are "somehow knowledgeable", whereas their overall attitude shows that they have a "positive" attitude. The results proved to be insignificant between the level of knowledge and attitude towards contraception. The recommendation of the researchers is to have this study be conducted with mature respondents who have developed an understanding of the contraceptive aspect.
