To achieve the objectives of the study, the descriptive survey approach was used, and the questionnaire was used as a tool for data collection, and a random sample of (425) teachers was chosen.

In light of these conclusions, the study recommended school leaders to continue practicing ethical leadership because of the impact of leader’s ethics on raising the level of teachers’ performance, and prompting them to make all the efforts that would contribute to achieving the objectives.
