The study used a descriptive research design. The study involved 125 respondents. Based on the findings, democratic and authoritative leadership styles since support from the subordinate teachers through cooperation understanding and teamwork enable them to attain the goals and objectives of the school organization when applied alternatively as the need arises. Moreover, the school heads are not so convinced to adopt autocratic and laissez fair leadership styles since it creates a gap between the school heads and the subordinate teachers in school.
