The purpose of this research was to explore the relationship between school culture and motivation perceptions of teachers in high schools. The study tested whether the participant teachers' organizational culture and motivation perceptions were statistically different according to gender, marital status, school type and professional seniority and also it was attempted to determine whether the motivation perceptions of teachers could be statistically predicted from their organizational culture perceptions. A simple random sampling method was used in the study conducted with the teachers employed in high schools in Diyarbakır city center. The Organizational Culture Scale and the Teacher Motivation Scale were incorporated as data gathering instruments in the study. As a result of the research, it was concluded that the teachers' organizational culture perceptions statistically varied according to gender (in favor of the female teachers) and marital status (in favor of the married teachers) in the power culture dimension and according to professional seniority (in favor of those of 20 years or more teaching experience) in the support culture dimension and that the motivation perceptions of the teachers statistically varied according to gender (in favor of female teachers) in the external motivation dimension.
