Most research over the last three decades has shown that students' views toward physical education, whether good or negative, are essential variables in their engagement in physical activities. The study aimed to determine the significant influence of teacher performance and students' attitudes toward physical education. The study included 199 students from the Padada and Hagonoy II districts in the Philippines who participated in quantitative non-experimental research using a correlational technique and a random sample technique. All participants completed the questionnaire, which consisted of 68 questions. Instruction, evidence of student learning, management and organization, learning climate, and professionalism were the factors that affect teacher performance. Moreover, family physical education, cultural physical education, and personal physical education were student performance indicators. Mean, Pearson-r, and Regression were the statistical tools used for the data treatment. Results showed a high level of teacher performance regarding instruction, management, and organization and evidence of student learning and learning climate. Thus, only professionalism shows significant results (r=.326, p<0.05). The study also revealed that student attitudes towards physical education were very high regarding cultural, physical education, family physical education, and personal physical education. Furthermore, there was only a minimal significant relation between the indicators. However, this cannot affect the overall result of the study. Implications for future studies and practice are provided in this paper.
