The COVID-19 is a newly discovered viral disease that causes serious illness in people. It was originally discovered in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Since then, it has spread throughout the world. Thus, in this pandemic, understanding and basic preventive measures are critical for building effective control measures. The purpose of this study was to assess and describe the level of knowledge of COVID-19 and its preventive measures among Grade 12 STEM students from San Beda College Alabang. A web-based survey was used as the research instrument in this study, which was conducted on 80 out of 450 Grade 12 students in San Beda College Alabang. The respondents were chosen using the convenience sampling method. Furthermore, this study used the basic descriptive statistic for measuring their level of knowledge according to the scoring scale that we have for the measurement of the respondent’s scores. Most of the respondents, appear to have a high level of understanding of COVID-19 prevention methods, with 85% indicating excellent knowledge, 13.75% indicating moderate knowledge, and 1.25% indicating poor knowledge. While most respondents had excellent knowledge of COVID-19 (90%), others had poor (1.25%) and moderate (8.75%) knowledge of COVID-19. It was also shown that many respondents (96.30%) get their information from social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, while the least (34.1%) get their information from healthcare workers. In conclusion, the researchers discovered that most of the selected Grade 12 STEM students from San Beda College, Alabang demonstrated great awareness of COVID-19 and its prevention strategies.
