This quantitative study aimed to: (1) explore Bhutanese middle secondary school teachers’ level of perception on the principal’s
instructional leadership practices and the school culture, (2) explore the relationship between the principal’s instructional
leadership practices and the school culture, (3) construct the best predictive equation to predict the school culture using four
dimensions of the principal’s instructional practices in the school. The following statistics were employed for data analyses:
means, standard deviations, the Pearson r analysis and stepwise regression analysis. It was found that there was a small positive
correlation between demographic data of respondents and the school culture. The result indicated that the perception level of
teachers on the principal’s instructional practices and school culture were at high level (Mean = 3.68 and 3.82 respectively).
There was a highly positive correlation between the principal’s instructional practices and the school culture (Pearson r = .775
with p 0.01, r2 = .604). The best predictive dimension of school culture from the four dimensions of principal’s instructional
practices in the school was the improvement of instructional practices(X2), management of people and resources(X3) and
allocation of resources(X4) with r = .777, and significance level at 0.01.
