This study aimed to determine the level of Senior High School Teachers’ Research Competence and Satisfaction on Facilities and Resources and the relationship among these variables. It utilized the descriptive-correlational research design through survey method. The results of the findings revealed that most of the respondents were graduates of BSEd-English with master’s unit, rendered 0-5 years, had taught the Practical Research subject for two semesters, and attended the Mass Training for Applied subjects. Generally, Practical Research teachers are competent in terms of technical aspects, major parts of the research paper, other parts of research paper and other-research skills. They are Not Satisfied on the facilities and resources provided by the school. Teachers viewed that their profile have no impact to their research competence. There was no significant difference on the level of satisfaction on facilities and resources in terms of area of specialization, number of years in service, number of semesters in handling Research subjects and seminar-trainings attended. However, there is significant difference on the level of satisfaction on facilities and resources in terms of highest educational attainment. Finally, there was a correlation between the level of research competence and satisfaction on the facilities and resources. This research concludes that the teachers’ research competence is interrelated by their satisfaction level on the facilities and resources. However, this level of satisfaction can be attributed to their educational attainment. The higher the level of their educational attainment the more they will demand on the facilities and resources to be provided by the school. Recommendations were proposed to enhance teachers’ research competence.
