This descriptive study was conducted to determine the scale of changes and the style of changes in the High Performance Schools (SBT) and national schools at primary and secondary level in the district of Kota Tinggi, Johor. This study involved 154 samples from a primary school and a secondary school that is acknowledged as a High Performing Schools (SBT) and two randomly selected national schools of primary and secondary level. This study is conducted through quantitative approach by utilizing questionnaire as an instrument to obtain the data. The data were then analyzed by using descriptive statistical analysis with the help of Statistical Packages For Social Sciences (SPSS 16). The questionnaire was developed based on Stace and Dunphy Contingency Model of Changes and consists of items that measure the scale of change taking place in the schools and the style of change adopted by the headmaster/principal of the school concerned. Statistical percentages techniques, frequency, mean and standard deviation are used to measure the scale of change and the styles of change. A comparison on average frequency between the schools is measured to answer the research questions. The findings of the descriptive analysis show that the scale of change in high performance schools and national schools are different whereas the styles of change practiced by the schools leaders indicated some common traits. Implications of the findings and recommendations resulting from the study are discussed in the final part of this study.
