Kualitas mutu sumber daya manusia salah satunya ditentukan oleh kualitas mutu pendidikan.Untuk meningkatkan mutu pendidikan tidak hanya dapat dilakukan melalui perbaikan proses pembelajaran seperti kurikulum, metode pembelajaran, perbaikan kualitas guru atau sarana pendidikan tetapi juga melalui kepemimpinan kepala sekolah. Kepemimpinan kepala sekolah merupakan faktor penting dalam menentukan keberhasilan sekolah karena kepala sekolah berhubungan langsung dengan pelaksanaan program sekolah. Penelitian ini membahas mengenai pelaksanaan kepemimpinan kepala sekolah X di pulau Bali. Penelitian ini dilakukan menggunakan pendekatan kualitatif deskriptif, menggunakan pengamatan wawancara, dan dokumentasi. Metode survey dilakukan hanya sebagai penegasan dan data pendukung. Teknik analisis data menggunakan model analisis interaktif yang terdiri dari pengumpulan data, reduksi data, penyajian dan kesimpulan. Pengujian keabsahan data menggunakan triangulasi sumber. Berdasarkan hasil penelitian, disimpulkan bahwa kendala-kendala yang dihadapi kepala sekolah dalam menjalankan kepemimpinannya adalah kurangnya dukungan dari pihak yayasan sekolah dalam menciptakan standar, sistem dan program yang berorientasi pada visi, misi dan tujuan sekolah. Untuk itu yayasan sebagai pembuat kebijakan hendaknya melakukan koordinasi dan kolaborasi yang baik dengan seluruh warga sekolah sehingga dapat menentukkan arah kebijakan dan menumbuhkan komitmen yang kuat dalam pemenuhan tujuan sekolah.
