Abstract

Going to school is a daily affair in a students life. The distance between home and school may be a determining factor in the school performance of the students. In this study, it aims to compare two sample groups of students: one group lives 1-2 kilometers from the school, and the other lives 3–4 kilometers from the school. The researchers utilized a sample size of 166, which represents the entire population of Binoni National High School. The participants were chosen using simple random sampling. Then the respondents were subjected to answering a questionnaire that measured the study habits of the participants and their fourth quarter ratings for school performance. The general average of the students near the school is 85.43%, while those living away from school have a general average of 85.47%. While the Likert scale shows an overall mean of 3.98 with a verbal description of agree, students from 3–4 kilometers from school have an overall mean of 4.11 with a verbal description of agree. These findings suggest that even if there is no significant difference in school performance between students who live near and far from school, However, they differ in their study habits students living away from school had a better study habit than students living near the school.
