This study aimed to ascertain the perception of teachers on the level of their work-life balance and school commitment and its relationship to one another, which serves as the basis for a policy review. Data was gathered using the researcher-made survey questionnaire on work-life balance and adapted/modified questionnaire from A Three Component Organizational Commitment Questionnaire of Allen and Meyer (1990/1997) on school commitment to 128 teachers of School Divisions of Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, and Valenzuela. Statistical treatment such as weighted mean, frequency, and Pearson r was employed. Results show that teachers’ perception level on their work-life balance and school commitment is moderate in different dimensions and no significant relationship exists between the two variables. Teachers’ salary, medical assistance, hospitalization, and retirement age posted the first three highest in rank for a policy review.
