This research is a descriptive qualitative that explaines and describes any pertinent things related to the school principal leadership and teachers’ creativities which occur now at the research spot. This Study investigated roles of the school principal in encouraging, driving, and directing teachers to be creative in performing their works. Results indicated that in encouraging his teachers, the school principal: 1) provides conducive climate and condition by involving his teachers in designing school programs and by welcoming his teachers’ comments and arguments on any policies he applies or any decisions he takes; 2) introduces and assures his teachers that education paradigm has changed therefore the school should be managed as a business firm in the area of public services where the most thing that should be considered is how to satisfy customers; 3) informs clearly that in evaluating his staff’s performances he applies ’reward and punishment policy’; and 4) optimizes his managerial functions especially in monitoring what happens in the classroom. In driving his teachers he really applies his policy and delegates several responsibilities and jobs to the right persons. In directing his teachers he lets his staff especially his teachers free to do their best.
