Abstract: Educational leaders and policy makers worldwide are always looking for reforms to make sure that academic institutions are able to produce functionally literate individuals in a decentralized educational system. School-Based Management (SBM) has served as a reform concretizing decentralization in the basic education sector in different parts of the world. This study aimed to analyse the praxis of SBM on curriculum and learning in one of the public schools in the Philippines. It employed survey research method to randomly selected students and purposively sampled English, Science and Mathematics (ENSCIMA) teachers and the school head. Results revealed different instructional practices employed by the teachers particularly in the three major subject areas identified. But despite these practices, the study suggested that educational institutions must still work on programs and projects that will fortify their partnerships and linkages in the community and other public and private institutions. This will help improve the pedagogical techniques and instructional materials so as to respond to the diverse needs of the students towards effective and efficient curriculum and learning.
