“Adolescents make reproductive health decisions and choices based on their knowledge” (Kyilleh et al., 2018). This study aims to determine the relationship between the level of knowledge of Senior High School Students of De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) on Reproductive Tract Infections (RTIs) and the predisposing factors, mainly; personal attributions, psychological undertaking, and societal influence. A correlational research design was used, and a random sample of 265 DLSMHSI senior high school students participated. An online survey questionnaire was distributed to the selected respondents to assess their general characteristics and the relationship between the level of knowledge and predisposing factors. The current findings revealed that most respondents are knowledgeable and that the predisposing factors influence their knowledge of RTIs. It was also discovered that the three parameters had a significant relationship with the level of knowledge on RTIs, all had a positive correlation, or the variables had a direct relationship. The current study concluded that students at DLSMHSI have a high level of knowledge pertaining to the predisposing factors and that it has significantly influenced their knowledge of RTIs. This study contains a variety of recommendations that might be useful to future researchers who would carry out studies on the same topic and field.
