Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the practices and challenges of conducting action research at Bole Preparatory Secondary School. Mixed method was employed in this study. Questionnaire was used to collect data from teachers. To complement the information obtained through questionnaire, interviews were held with the principal and the Deputy Principal of Bole preparatory School. To analyze quantitative data, descriptive statistics (frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation), were used. The questionnaire was pilot tested and administered to 15 teachers at Lem Secondary School in Addis Ababa. The results of the study suggested that, the practices of action research by Bole preparatory School‘s teachers is very low, even though the level of knowledge and skills of the teachers in the School was sufficient, their involvement in practicing action research was very low, school management‘s role in encouraging teachers to conduct action research was insufficient such as incentives, pay rise, etc., the study also indicated that there are shortages of training, seminars and workshops regarding action research; insufficient budget, insufficient reference materials and library services and etc that hindered the teachers from conducting the research. Therefore, to solve these problems and enhance the level of practice of action research it has been recommended that the school management in cooperation with Sub-City and City Administration Education Bureaus should try to overcome the aforementioned problems.
