Background: There are many challenges in implementing the education on puberty due to negative attitude and lack of knowledge among pre adolescents particularly belongs to rural area. PURPOSE: During puberty growth is rapid and confusing compared to earlier period of childhood. The purpose of this study was to compare the knowledge and attitude among adolescents before and after structured teaching programme. Methodology: Pre experimental design was adopted for the study. The sample size was 30. The sample was selected by purposive sampling technique. The data was collected by using questionnaire and 3 Point Likert scale developed by the researcher. A structured teaching programme on physiological changes during puberty was administered to the school students and was evaluated. Results: The finding shows that majority 29 (96.7%) had adequate knowledge and 01 (3.3%) had moderate knowledge and 27 (90%) had positive attitude and 2 (6.3%) had neutral attitude. There was no significant association between the post test knowledge of school students among physiological changes during puberty with the selected demographic variable. So the knowledge and attitude is not constrained with selected demographic variables like age, sex education, religion, residential area, income and prior information about puberty.
