Pregnancy among teenagers has been a global social, economic, and educational problem among developed, growing, and underdeveloped countries. Our country has a limited study about teenage pregnancy and sex education. That’s why we conducted this study to find out what the possible rules, considerations, or policies the public school in San Carlos City can give to these kinds of students to avoid dropping out of school and continue their studies even in their difficult situation.

Some teenagers stop going to school when they find out that they are pregnant. They are more willing to stop hiding their pregnancy and avoid being bullied at school. Teenage pregnant student suffers from bullying in a way their schoolmates have a different reaction to their pregnancy. Parents still encourage their teen children to still continue their studies and support them in all the way they can. As parents they play the important role of being a health educator, they are the role model in influencing the young people with their attitudes and behavior.

One of the problems faced by schools hoping to support pregnant teenagers is the attitude that assistance is tolerating their pregnancies. Morning sickness and regular doctor’s visits for check-ups may cause absences for these students. That’s why some of them are hesitant to continue their studies because of their condition. The school wants these students to be successful, they don’t want to send a message to other students that being pregnant during adolescence is a good option.

Teenage pregnancy compromises the development opportunities of young girl which hinders their formal education resulting in unemployment and being unproductive making them vulnerable to violence, crime, poverty, and social exclusion. With the help of every school, the student may still continue their studies and reach their goals. If the school has these policies and procedures to protect their teenage pregnant student then they would be one of the assets of every student to continue until graduation.

The poor academic performance of teenage mothers has also been one of the reasons why teenage mothers drop out of school. Therefore, this study aims to assess the prevalence of teenage pregnancy and its associated factors among school adolescents in public schools in San Carlos City to avoid dropout.
