Good and cordial interpersonal relations among education stakeholders are fundamental to school success and principal leadership is crucial in fostering healthy interpersonal relations amongst these stakeholders. Principals, teachers, parents-teachers associations (PTAs) and school management boards (SMBs) are the main stakeholders of public secondary schools in Cameroon. Decree No 2001/041 of 19th February2001 is one of the main instruments, regulating interpersonal relations among secondary stakeholders in Cameroon. This study intends to investigate the level of mutual trust between principal and stakeholders (teachers, PTAs and SMBs). Three specific research objectives and questions were formulated to guide this study. The study uses a descriptive survey design wherein data was collected with the use of questionnaire and interview guide. One hundred and eighty two teachers comprising of vice principals, senior discipline masters, head of departments and teachers' delegates, and 18 principals returned completed copies of the questionnaire. Thirty two executive members of PTAs and 16 members of SMBs were interviewed. An analysis of both qualitative and quantity data resulted in the following findings: there is a high degree of mutual trust between principals and stakeholders. The degree of mutual trust between principals and other stakeholders is low when it comes to financial issues. Based on these findings, recommendations were made to policy makers, practitioners and education stakeholders.
