This study aimed to find out the strengths and weaknesses in the practices of principals as instructional managers and spiritual leaders in basic education in St. Paul schools. The 5-point Likert Scale was used to identify the respondents‘ ratings as a group. Weighted mean was used in order to find out the level of strengths and weaknesses of principals‘ managerial leadership, instructional leadership, and spiritual leadership practices. The Z-test was also used to test the significant difference in the perception of the respondents. The study revealed that in the level of strength of the principals‘ leadership practices, the principal-respondents gave mostly a ―very strong‖ verbal interpretation in all aspects of the managerial, instructional, and spiritual leadership while the teachers presented a ―strong‖ verbal interpretation. The study also found that there is no significant difference between the principal-respondents and the teacher-respondents in all aspects of the managerial leadership, instructional leadership, and spiritual leadership; however, in terms of simplicity and humility, the study found that there is a significant difference in the perception of the respondents.
