The study was designed as a case study.

Descriptive analysis of data interpretation was adopted throughout the data analysis process. As it is stated in related literature, in descriptive analysis, the obtained data is identified in a systematic and clear way. Afterwards, these descriptions and identifications are explained and interpreted, and the cause and effect relations are examined, eventually some certain conclusions are made based on the data. The results of the present study showed that participative leadership, seeking subordinates' motivation and satisfaction, and concerning students' needs are essentials in school administration.
