The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership style among high school principals based on the learning organizations factors (personal matters, mental model, shared vision, team learning and system thinking). A randomly selected sample of 90 principals and 120 teachers from Isfahan participated in the study. The instruments included two questionnaires; one with 41 and the other with 44 items. The Cronbach alpha was 0.96 for the learning organization scale and 0.94 for transformational and transactional questionnaire. Results showed a positive relation between transformational and transactional leadership style with indices of learning organization. It was also found that in view of high school principals the elements of learning organization were above average. As far as the learning organization indices were concerned no difference was found between principals of different sexes, qualifications, and years of experience. Meanwhile, as for the leadership style a significant difference was found between teachers of different qualifications.
