Human resources play a crucial role in the success of an organization. Reliable and skilled human resources will enable an organization to achieve its goals. This also applies at school. School is a formal institution that is responsible for the realization of national education goals. To achieve this goal, good school quality is needed. Principals have a very strategic role because managers must manage all activities in schools, especially human resources in schools such as teachers and other education personnel who determine the success of the teaching and learning system in schools. Therefore, this study aims to assess the role of school principals in developing human resources in schools to improve school quality. This study uses a qualitative method with descriptive analysis. The survey results show that improving the quality of schools cannot be separated from the development of human resources in schools. Therefore, the role of the principal as a leader in the school is significant. In managing human resources in schools, principals can conduct training for teachers and administrative staff such as training on curriculum, development of learning media, skills. In addition, no less critical is welfare development.
