Abstract—This study covered 237 students of Angat National High School in Taboc, Angat, Bulacan - Philippines particularly the students of Junior High School department for the 2nd Grading Period of the Academic Year 2017-2018. This was delimited to 40 percent sample randomly chosen from the population of 581junior high school, and the 237 parents of the total student respondents. Descriptive correlational method of research was utilized in this study with questionnaire as the main instrument for gathering data. Academic performance was quantified using the grade point average of students in Mathematics. 23 students or 9.7 percent were in the “advanced proficiency level in Mathematics. Generally, the overall performance of the students in Mathematics may be described as “approaching proficiency. The results of analysis of variance revealed and F-ratio of .990 with associated probability of p=.422 which indicates that the parental involvement strategies like mentoring, parental involvement initiatives, awarding scheme and achievement recognition affect the academic performance of the students in Mathematics but not to a significant extent. Since the associated probabilities of the coefficients were found to be higher than the significance level set at .05, it was found to be non-significant. The null hypothesis is sustained. Conclusions were drawn and recommendations were offered.

Index Terms—Academic performance, junior high school, mathematics, parental involvement.
