The study examined the effect of school location on principal administrative performance in secondary schools in Ondo state, Nigeria. One null hypothesis was formulated to guide the study. A descriptive survey research design was used for the study. The population of the study consisted of 12,125 teachers in the 304 public secondary schools. While, the sample size comprised of 480 teachers selected from 30 public secondary schools in Ondo state. The sample size was selected using a simple random sampling technique. Effect of school location on principal administrative performance Questionnaire (ESLPAPQ) was a self-designed data collection instrument. Experts in Educational Management and Measurements and Evaluation at Bamidele Olumilua University of Education, Science and Technology validated the instrument. The instrument’s reliability was tested using test-retest method and a coefficient value of 0.77 was obtained.
