Abstract: This study examined the effects of head teacher’s leadership practices on school culture using Senior High Schools in the Kwahu-West Municipality in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Data were collected from 230 respondents, comprising of school Heads, Teachers and non-teaching staff in five Senor High Schools in the Kwahu-West Municipality using questionnaire. The data collected was analysed using inferential statistics. The results of the analysis revealed that the key school cultures reported were the involvement of parents in school management and development of effective coordination among staff, parents and students.
