Abstract
This study aims to identify the junior high students’ awareness level of the reproductive health concepts in Gaza. To answer the questions of the study and verify its hypotheses, the researchers have implemented the descriptive approach. They have also prepared a list of reproductive health concepts, a test to measure the cognitive aspects, and an attitude scale to measure the affective aspects. The test and the attitude scale have been implemented on the study sample comprising (322) female and male students in the tenth grade of the school year (2010- 2011) from Basheer Al Rayes school, Assad Al Saftawi School, Al Ramla School, and Suleiman Sultan School. The outcomes proved that the level of the cognitive aspects and the level of the affective aspects of the awareness of the reproductive health concepts for the junior high students in Gaza is less than the hypothetical limit by 75%. There are no statistical significance differences in the awareness level of the cognitive aspects of the reproductive health concepts for the high junior students attributed to gender variable (males and females). There are no statistical significance differences in the awareness level of the affective aspects of the reproductive health concepts for the junior high students attributed to gender variable (males and females) in the total degree.
