The goal of school-based management (SBM) is to empower school personnel to improve, innovate, and foster ongoing professional development in schools. SBM was developed to make a fundamental change in educational practice. This study aimed to determine and evaluate the levels of perception on school-based management implementation in San Luis National High School, San Luis District-I, Division of Agusan del Sur, Philippines. The study employed and utilized descriptive-correlational survey research design. Furthermore, the questionnaires were sent to the San Luis National High School teachers and the randomly chosen teachers who visited the aforementioned school to serve as study participants. Hence, it reveals that 64.15% (127 out of 198) of respondents are female and 35.85% (71 out of 198) are male.  Based on the findings, a moderate descriptive rating for each dimension of school-based management (SBM) implementation is indicated by an overall mean rating of 3.37 and a standard deviation of 0.637. Wherein, all scored higher than the minimum standard: leadership and governance, 3.66±0.729; curriculum and learning, 3.39±0.542; accountability and continuous improvement, 2.98±0.691; and management of resources, 3.43±0.607. Based on how the data was processed, the Pearson correlation is equivalent to 0.541 with a r2 of 0.365. The positive correlation coefficient of determination (r), which is comparable to the significance threshold of p< .05. The perception of school-based management (SBM) implementation among teachers in this regard was determined to be moderate.
