This was a descriptive and exploratory research conducted at Sinawingan High School. It sought to determine the choice of career path of Grade 7 students who wished to pursue their senior years and the career path their parents wanted them to take. An equivalent questionnaire which was adopted from the Research Center of SCC was administered to 89 students and 72 parents (80.90% attrition rate), who were identified using simple random sampling through lottery method. The said questionnaire was about the career path and specializations students wished to pursue during their senior years. Questionnaires for parents were translated into Filipino using forward method to make it suitable to their needs. Since the data involved in this research were nominal, statistical tools such as frequency and ranking were used in the analysis. The Wilcoxon Rank-Sum test was used to determine if a difference existed between the choice of career path of Grade 7 students and the choice of their parents for them.

The results showed that both students and parents had the same career path preference. Both of them ranked Science Technology, and Engineering as their first choice. Results further showed that Commercial Cooking was the most preferred specialization in the field of Home Economics; and Agricultural Crop Production under Agriculture. Meanwhile, in the field of Industrial Arts, Automotive Servicing ranked first for the students while Carpentry ranked first for their parents.

The instrument consisted four parts: demographic profile of the respondents, personal employment, history, factors relevant to graduates, current job, and suggestions from the graduates for the improvement of the Natsci program.

Most of the 72 graduate participants were employed in the public sector and most were in the field of teaching. Some of the graduates worked outside the PPALMA area and abroad. This implied the quality and marketability of NatSci graduates.

The respondents rated the Natural Science curriculum as relevant which implied that the graduates benefitted, experienced and used the subjects in the curriculum.
