The researchers chose this topic because dropout is a prevalent issue inside the school. Dropout is when the student leaves school for any reason. The researchers aim to determine the reasons why the students are dropping out of school. Factors that contribute to the high dropout rate should be determined to find a program design and identify interventions that may address the problem. The purpose of this study was to know the root causes leading students to drop out. Our research may enable the staff working in institutions to identify high-and at-risk student and student groups. The importance of this study was to determine the effectiveness of students’ and parents’ orientation in addressing the dropout rates among Grade 12 Accountancy, Business, and Management students. This research used the descriptive research design because it is the most applicable in doing research. The study used a descriptive approach because it allows the researchers to carefully describe and understand the situation of the students. It is the most applicable research design to be used to identify the specific problem and answer it directly. The descriptive design aims to accurately and systematically describe a population. Based on the findings, the lack of parental support because their parents are more focused on earning a living, lack of financial support, academic struggles, and parents who are unwilling to communicate with teachers and school administrators were a few reasons why the students are dropping out of school. The students were recommended to set their goals and at the same time make an effort to fulfill the given tasks. Loving what you do is important; hence, never let negative things ruin your mind. Encouraging and motivating the students by talking to them is important. School counselors should identify potential dropouts and work closely with them to help them stay in school or find an alternative means of completing their education. Exploring the reasons why students are dropping out of school, identifying predictive risk factors, and highlighting social indicators associated with dropped out students should be implemented. Schools and districts should set and meet meaningful progress goals to improving their graduation and dropout rates.
