Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Binary logistic regressions. The results were a total of 73.99% of weight were proportionate status; male 41.46 %, female 58.54% (X = 34.90 ± 13.29, Min =13.00kg. Max = 86.00kg.). Mostly of height were normal height 77.81%; male 40.93%, female 59.07% (X = 138.50, ± 14.91,Min = 100.00 cm. Max 175.00 cm.). A total of 68.05% were well height and body of good Proportion (WHGP.); male 41.41%, female 59.59%. Factors significantly associated with reporting WHGP (P value <.05) were (a) sex (OR = 0.660, 95% CI = 0.480-0.907), (b) studying at grade level (OR = 6.787, 95% CI = 2.292-20.094), (c) parental level of education (OR = 7.593, 95% CI = 2.419-23.834), (d) knowledge of meat is a protein that helps build muscles (OR = 1.678, 95% CI = 1.041-2.703, (e) knowledge of the nutrition: five food groups (OR= 2.108, 95% CI = 1.191-3.729) (f) student behavior eating breakfast before going to school (OR = 4.272, 95% CI = 1.802-10.128), (g) student behavior adheres to an advertised diet with an interest in the nutritional value (OR = 2.310, 95% CI = 1.334-3.999), (h) student behavior drinking milk every day (OR = 2.388, 95% CI = 1.330-4.2080).
