The study concentrated on three prevalent leadership styles: democratic leadership, authoritarian leadership, and laissez-faire leadership, and how each may impact kids' learning in school. To achieve these goals, appropriate research questions were developed to elicit opinions and general concepts about how respondents perceive their school leaders' leadership competencies and the typical leadership style they employ. The study focused on three common leadership styles: democratic leadership, authoritarian leadership, and laissez-faire leadership, and how each may affect children's school learning. To achieve these objectives, relevant research questions were devised to gather respondents' thoughts and basic notions about how they see their school leaders' leadership abilities and the usual leadership style they utilize. The study's overall sample size was 324 people, with 61 teachers (51 men and 10 females) and 263 pupils (151 males and 112 females) serving as responders. The study's findings revealed that the respondents had varying educational degrees and had worked in the schools surveyed for more than three years. This demonstrates that the respondents were already familiar with the leadership styles of their various school principals. The study established that the majority of the respondents who participated in the study were between 15 and 50 years of age. A descriptive design was implemented for a study using a simple random sampling technique to select participating teachers and students to respond to questionnaire items. The acquired data was efficiently analyzed using the Social Sciences Statistical Package (SPSS) version 28. The data findings were analyzed and discussed in light of the research study's objectives. The report also suggests that, because the study only looked at public senior high schools, a comparative study was carried out in private senior high schools in the towns for comparison.
