Abstract: This study compared the achievement of secondary school students of India, Pakistan and Zimbabwe with respect to the leadership style (authoritative & democratic) of their principals. The data related to students’ achievement and principal leadership style was gathered randomly from 60 schools including 6000 students and 60 principals. The statistical tests such as ANOVA and Pearson correlation were employed and results of the study indicated that Indian students have achieved more in math and science than students of Pakistan and Zimbabwe irrespective of the leadership style of their principal. Also, Pearson correlation showed no significant relationship between students’ achievement and leadership style of their principals.
