The study found out that, there is a great relationship between school administration and students protests. In this aspect, it was found out that, students protests occurs when there is poor administrative response to students problems and poor classroom teaching and learning. On the basis of the study findings the following strategies were identified to overcome the problem, strengthening in-service courses on conflict management, increasing school budget so as to enable an effective running of school activities, having regular meeting with school stakeholders and involving student’s representative council. Finally the researcher recommends that heads of schools need to be committed to their respective responsibilities and they should have timely intervention to students problems so as to avoid unnecessary students’ protests; the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training should allocate sufficient fund for public secondary schools to enable school administrators to run school smoothly and the government should strengthen students counseling services in all secondary school in the country in order to maintain the students discipline.
