The research results are as following: Firstly, the overall level of supervision practices by managers’ viewpoint (mean = 4.129) and teachers’ viewpoint (mean = 3.586) is at high level (mean = 3.41—4.20). Secondly, based on the dimension of instructional programs (t = 2.323, p = 0.021), the mean score of younger managers is higher than older managers significantly. Thirdly, among dimensions of communication (t = 2.140, p = 0.033), staff development (t = 2.415, p = 0.017), motivating & organizing (t = 2.271, p = 0.024) and curriculum (t = 2.407, p = 0.017), inexperienced teachers have higher mean scores than experienced teachers significantly.
