Effective and strategic leadership involves giving an organization a competitive advantage. Any organization that maintains its competitive advantage requires leadership that analyzes the environment, creates vision, and harnesses available resources to achieve its objectives effectively and efficiently in teacher motivation. If this is not done well, it affects the school system and teachers’ motivation, influencing student learning and overall school performance. This study examined the effect of teacher motivation on school performance in selected schools in Kirinyaga County. The population under research was 542 subjects, with a target of 160 subjects. A questionnaire was used for data collection, and the statistical tool used for quantitative analysis was Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 23 for Windows. Teacher motivation significantly affected school performance in the selected schools in Kirinyaga County. A comparative analysis of the results indicated that Extra County schools had a more positive influence than Sub County schools in Kirinyaga County. It would be necessary for future researchers to establish other factors that affect school performance that were not captured in the study.
