Corazon A. Quintos, Dennis G. Caballes, Edheson M. Gapad


A good human relation has something to do with the performance of any individual in an institution. This study was conducted to investigate whether the relationship between the school administrator and the teacher is an indicative measure of student learning achievement. It utilized mixed method approach using questionnaire as the primary instrument. Results revealed that there is a positive relationship between the school administrator and the teacher. However, the learning achievement of the students on ICT-Based course is not significantly correlated to the relationship between the school administrator and the teacher based on the Pearson r correlation coefficient of 0.316 with the corresponding p value of 0.617.
