Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions:</p> <ol> <li>What is the Mean Percentage Score (MPS) in Mathematics of Grade 3 Pupils in Lupok Central School at the beginning of 1<sup>st</sup> Grading of School Year 2017 – 2018 before peer teaching intervention?</li> <li>What is the Mean Percentage Score in Mathematics of Grade 3 Pupils in Lupok Central School at the end of 4<sup>th</sup> Grading of School Year 2017 – 2018 after peer teaching intervention?</li> <li>Is there a Significant difference before and after the intervention program?</li> <li>What intervention program may be proposed based on the findings of the study?</li> </ol> <p>Based on the data gathered/collected from the class adviser of Grade 3 Section Bougainvillea in Lupok Central School, the result of base line MPS from 1<sup>st</sup> Grading period specifically in mathematics subject is 74.22 which is considered below the 75% proficiency level.</p> <p> The result showed a radical increase in Mean Percentage Score in mathematics subject after the intervention was given to the Grade 3 pupils with the previous result of 74.22% from the 1<sup>st</sup> Grading into 82.11% MPS result in the 4<sup>th</sup> Grading period.</p> <p>The results of the study further revealed that the implementation of Peer teaching strategy has a positive effect in increasing the academic performance in mathematics of Grade 3 pupils. There was 7.89% increase in MPS for mathematics subject from the first grading to the fourth grading period.</p>}, number={08}, journal={International Journal of Scientific Research and Management}, author={Lacaba, Alvin Bituaran and Magalona, Jason D. and G.
