The purpose of the study was to investigate and justify the rationale of the feasibility to expand the existing physical facilities of AIIAS International Elementary School (AIES) within 1-3 years. Equipping the decision makers with a documentary analysis of expansion versus the consequences of non-expansion was the bottom line of the study. The research questions for this feasibility study addressed the following functional areas: (a) enrollment trends, (b) enrollment projections, financial analysis, (d) technical study, (e) marketing, (f) organization, and (g) socioeconomic. The analysis of the enrollment trends revealed that there had been an inconsistently increasing enrollment since the school’s establishment at the present location at Lalaan I, Silang, Cavite, Philippines. The school’s physical facilities remained the same in relation to the rapidly increasing number of pupils. This rendered the facilities inadequate. An enrollment projection showed a consistent increment, justifying an urgent need to improve and enlarge the school’s existing physical facilities. The structure proposed would consist of a storey building with two classrooms each measuring meters seven by nine and a multipurpose hall of meters seven by fifteen. A cost of Philippine Pesos 3,282,930.00, including an inflationary provision of 10% on material cost and 5% on labor, was estimated to the direct expansion and furnishing cost of the project. Several sub-questions were addressed and guided the study: 1. What are the forces favoring the expansion of the existing physical facilities of AIES? 2. What are the projections for enrollment for the next three years, given the enrollment trends for the past five years? 3. Is the expansion financially feasible? 4. Is the expansion worth the investment or cost? 5. What are the attitudes of AIES administrators, staff and faculty, and the decision makers toward the facility expansion alternative? 6. Who will be benefited from the facilities expansion; and in what ways?
