Abstract

Many researchers, in some cases organized in international projects, have shown considerable empirical evidence that the quality of leadership and school culture can be important factors in explaining the variation in student outcomes between schools. The present study characterizes the role of leaders and school culture in two schools with different academic results, but with similar student contexts and populations. Questionnaires were applied to teachers and semi-structured interviews were conducted with the directors and department coordinators of each school. From the analysis and interpretation of the data, it was possible to verify that the two schools present differences in the way the leaders (top and middle) are exercised and in their school culture. The school with the best academic results stand out for its organizational style, which gives it its own identity, and for its recognized and mobilizing leaders with shared missions and purposes. The data confirm that the existence of dialogue, pedagogical debate and cooperation between teachers, as well as a sense of belonging, transformation and proximity between teachers are essential aspects school success.
