Current researches indicate that what teacher does in the classroom significantly influence learning and one of which is classroom management. This study aimed to determine the classroom management approach of STE science teachers in Region 1, Philippines. Further, this study will also look on the influence of demographic profile on the classroom management approach; this includes sex, age, position and length of service. This will help in providing an environment that is more conducive for learning. The findings of this study will also be a baseline data for future studies and may contribute to the scarcity of demographic studies on classroom management. This study used descriptive quantitative design. This study used total enumeration with 113 respondents. Analysis of data includes: frequency, percentage, Pearson chi-square, point-biserial and Kendall tau-b. It revealed that most (70.8%) STE science teachers employ student-centered classroom management approach; Pearson chi-square yielded (X (1), is 0.049 p= 0.824) in terms of sex, in terms of age Point-biserial score yielded (rpb,= 0.116, p= 0.220), in terms of position, Kendall tau-b test revealed (Tb= 0.140, p= 0.104) and in terms of length of service point-biserial score yielded (rpb,= 0.116, p= 0.220), all this revealed that there is there is no significant association and relationship. In light of the results of this study, the following are concluded: most STE science teachers are able to adapt and employ the advocacy of DepEd in employing cooperative learning through student-centered classroom management approach. Moreover classroom management approach of STE science teachers is not affected by their sex, age, position and length of service.
