This descriptive correlational research used the simple random sampling method for the selection of the 68 students representing the 75.56% of the total population. A validated researcher-made mathematics achievement test was used in this study to find out the level of mathematics achievement of the students.

The statistical tools used were the Pearson's r to test the degree of relationship between the two variables, mathematics achievement, and English Language proficiency; the One Way ANOVA, and the t-test in determining the significant differences among groups of participants in terms of their mathematics achievement and English language proficiency. For the descriptive analysis; the statistical tools used were the means and standard deviations in determining the levels of mathematics achievement and English language proficiency. The study revealed that the students, taken as a whole, had an average level in their mathematics achievement and English language proficiency.
