With the rapid pace of urban life and the increase in academic pressure, the physical health status of students is increasingly attracting attention. This study aims to explore the physical health status and perceived factors of middle and high school students in Futian District, Shenzhen. Through stratified random sampling and data collection methods such as questionnaire surveys and physical fitness tests, relevant data on physical fitness, self-evaluation of physical health, and physical activity status of 300 sample students were collected. Basic statistical analysis methods and multiple regression methods were used for data processing and analysis. The research results indicate that students’ perception of physical health is influenced by various factors, including self-assessment of physical health and physical activity status. Among them, promoting students’ participation in sports activities and improving their physical fitness are important means to enhance students’ perception of physical health. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate students’ perceived level of physical health and develop targeted measures to promote physical health.
