Abstract: The study aimed to identify the level of job satisfaction and its relationship to the quality of life of school principals in the Karak Directorate of Education from their point of view in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. It was distributed to an intentional sample of (80) male and female managers. The results of the study concluded that the principals’ job satisfaction axis scored an average (2.89 out of 5), i.e. at a (medium) degree, while the managers’ quality of life axis got an average (2.82), i.e. a (medium) degree, and it was also found that there is a positive relationship between job satisfaction and quality of life. where the total correlation coefficient between them was (0.90), which means a (very strong) correlation. There are no statistically significant differences in job satisfaction and quality of life according to the gender variable.
