Social well-being is relevant among medical students as it enhances their overall performance as future medical professionals. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this aspect of living has been drastically impaired — physical forms of engagement are substantially constrained, making social interactions even more difficult than before. The Grade 12 Special Health Sciences Senior High School (SHSSHS) students at De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) are among those who have been implicated in this turn of affairs, notably those who are active in school organizations. Hence, the purpose of this study is to determine whether the engagement in school organizations has a significant influence on the perceived domains of social well-being, particularly social integration and social contribution, as well as their influence on the overall perceived level of social well-being of selected Grade 12 students at DLSMHSI during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study adopted a quantitative descriptive approach to gather quantitative data that can be presented in a numerical sense and made use of purposive sampling to acquire the qualified Grade 12 SHSSHS students for the study. The results show that the majority of the 103 students who consented to be a part of the study have a high perceived level of both social integration and social contribution, with values of 61.2% and 54.4% respectively. Hence, the overall perceived level of social well-being of the respondents reached 55.3% in percentage, qualifying to the description of a high level of social wellbeing. Since social well-being is directly proportional to engagement, the researchers concluded that engagement in school organizations has a high influence on the social well-being of Grade 12 DLSMHSI SHS students.
