Abstract—This study explores how Vocational High School students perceive their homeroom teachers’ performance in leadership and classroom management. The conclusions from these are below: 1) Homeroom teachers from central Taiwan’s Vocational High Schools usually strengthened their leadership through encouragement, but seldom through charismatic influence. 2) Out of all the effective classroom management perspectives, the aforementioned teachers performed best in classroom discipline, but needed to improve the classroom climate. 3) The female freshmen and sophomores majoring in business or home economics at the aforementioned Vocational High Schools, was the subgroup that had more favorable perceptions of their homeroom teachers’ leadership. 4) The female freshmen and sophomores majoring in business or home economics at the aforementioned Vocational High Schools was also the subgroup that had more favorable perceptions of their homeroom teachers’ classroom management effectiveness. 5) There is a significantly positive correlation between the aforementioned homeroom teachers’ charismatic influence and teacher-student interactions. 6) The best predictor for the aforementioned homeroom teachers’ effective classroom management was charismatic influence.
