Purpose–This study aimed to identify the effects of teachers’ attitude on teachers’ commitment in high performance schools in Kedah and also the effects of principals’ support as a mediator. Methodology– Data was obtained through a survey. The sample comprised a total of 399 teachers randomly selected from high performance public secondary schools in Kedah. The questionnaire comprised 40 items and has high reliability with Cronbach Alpha 0.94. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, and Multiple Regression Analysis.Findings – The findings showed that principals’ support in decision making was at a high level while the level of teachers’ commitment in decision-making was at moderate level. The regression analysis showed that teacher’s attitudes had significant relationship with loyalty and willingness to remain in school.The findings also indicate that principals’ support partially mediated the effect of teachers’ attitude and loyalty, and willingness to remain in decision making. Significance–This study illustrates that teachers who have a positive attitude while engaged in decision-making in high performance schools will remain at the school.Continuous encouragement by principals will affect the attitude of teachers towards participation n decision making.Teachers’ positive attitude will eventually increased their commitment.
