This study was focused on the impact of parental absence on the behavior and academic performance of pupils in Polillo Central Elementary School.  It utilized descriptive and cor relational types of research.  The respondents comprised of 248 pupils in PCES from different grade levels.  To gather data the researcher used a checklist questionnaire consisting of four dimensions, viz., behavior in the family, in the school, in the society and one for the data of the students.  The data gathered were computed through percentage, weighted mean, Mann-Whitney U and Spearman rank.  Based from the result of the study, it has been found out that majority of the respondents are 10-11 years old, mostly females and are in grade 6 level.  It also revealed that majority of the respondents having parental absence are living with their grandparents and the reason of parental absence is because their parents are overseas Filipino Workers or working at other places. Results show that the behavior of pupils who live without one or both parents and their academic performance are not statistically related. The teacher needs to be aware of the background of her students to figure out why they behave positively or negatively. Moreover, parents or guardians of the pupils should put more effort in developing their child’s behavior and motivate them to perform well in school by praising them over little achievements that they get.
