Servant Leadership qualities of principals in schools play a critical role in teachers ‘job satisfaction. Nevertheless, there is little research in the literature that is available on the links between principals’ servant leadership behavior and teachers’ job satisfaction in Addis Ababa high schools. Thus, the purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between servant leadership and teachers’ job satisfactions in the schools of Arada Sub city, Addis Ababa. The target population of the study consists of four hundred forty nine secondary school teachers. Of which 150 teachers, representing 33% of the population, were participated in the study. Stratified and simple random sampling methods were employed to select samples. Data were collected through a closed questionnaire filled by teachers through hard copy and they were analyzed through SPSS version 25 software. In the analysis of the data, descriptive statistics such as percent, frequency, mean, standard deviation were used. Correlation statistics were also used to study the relationship between the variables. According to the research findings, this study supported and verified that there is implementation of servant leadership qualities (M = 3.63), high job satisfaction (80.04%, M = 3.977) of teachers and strong relationship (r= .701**) between servant leadership practice and teachers’ job satisfaction. Therefore, to attain teachers’ satisfaction in their work, leaders in sample schools and others are advised to be service oriented and apply servant leadership approach in their respective work contexts.
