Abstract: This study examines the entrepreneurship perspective of junior high school students who took the required integrated living skills (ILS) courses in Junior High School in Malaysia. A total of 100 students from two selected schools participated in the study. The participants were administered a questionnaire designed to test their entrepreneurship perspective. The questionnaire was based on Luiz and Mariotti (2011) and the National Science Foundation in the USA. The Cronbach alpha for the different sections of the questionnaire ranged from .713 to .904 establishing the instrument's validity. The results of the study show that there is a positive relationship between entrepreneurship education in junior high schools and students' entrepreneurial intentions and entrepreneurship perception.
