Several factors affect the performance of students. This investigation was conducted to find out the predictors of performance among students in the Central Mindanao University Laboratory High School (CMULHS). Results showed that CMULHS students performed well in English, Mathematics and Science in their elementary years. Their parents were actively involved in their children's school activities. They have slightly positive attitude towards schooling, fairly good study habits, highly motivated to study, and attributed their achievement for their efforts. Almost one-third of the students were not qualifiers of the University Laboratory High School Admission Test (ULHSAT). The proportion was an offshoot of the Board of Regents Resolution approving the admission of children of employees of the university. All variables included in this investigation were positive correlates of students' performance except for gender. The relationship ranged from weak positive to moderately high positive relationship. Regression analysis indicated that 57.7% of students' performance was accounted for by all the variables included in this research investigation. The rest of the predictors of students' performance were Grade 6 English Grade, Grade 6 Math Grade, parental involvement, school graduated from, attribution, self-efficacy and motivation. Stepwise linear regression analysis showed that the best predictor of students' performance was the admission rating (ULHSAT rating) of the students with 36.6% coefficient of determination.
