This study assessed the level of pro-environmental behaviors, pollution control attitudes and knowledge among a sample of 424 secondary school students within Abuja the capital city of Nigeria. The data for this study was collected using three tools: environmental attitude test, environmental knowledge test and pro-environmental behavioral scale. The study data were analyzed using Ms. Excel computer program. Pearson correlation coefficient was used to compare individual responses on environmental knowledge with environmental attitude to see if both responses correlate with one another. According to the study results, the environmental attitude of the students was high, and results also showed their environmental knowledge to be also high while their pro-environmental behaviors were found to be moderate. It also reviewed that female student exhibited better pro-environmental behaviors, while the male students gave a better attitude to environmental related issues. The result displayed a very strong positive correlation value of 0.807 between environmental knowledge and environmental attitude, meaning the higher the environmental knowledge, the better their attitude towards issues of the environment and vice versa.
