Keywords: Attitudes toward Mother Tongue, Academic Performance

This action research specifically ascertained the degree of relationship between attitudes toward mother tongue and academic performance of the pupils. It entailed both descriptive and correlative methods of research.

The respondents were twenty Grade II pupils in Sabino Elementary School, East Distirct II, City Schools Division of Koronadal. Two instruments were used - a questionnaire on attitudes toward mother tongue and a record of grade point average of the pupils for the second grading period. The data gathered were treated using frequency distribution, weighted mean, percentage rate, and correlation tool.

At the end of this action research, it was found that there is a significant relationship between attitudes toward mother tongue and academic performance of pupils, which implies that as pupils possess desirable attitudes toward their native language, they achieve better in their academic aspect in the process.

It is the recommendation of this action research that educational practitioners should take advantage of every opportunity to develop among children the genuine appreciation of mother tongue as this provides strong foundation to sustain their interest in learning which would ultimately lead to increased academic achievement.
