How to improve school leadership and engage in a productive school renewal process to improve student achievement is among the most important questions for educational research. In this article, we reported the positive efficacy results of a randomized trial, a federally funded project tilted “High-Impact Leadership for School Renewal,” on (a) principal leadership, (b) school leadership and (c) student achievement. The implication and significance was discussed regarding the potential of the renewal model for initiating and sustaining school change with an ultimate goal to improve student achievement. Limitations of the study were also discussed.
