A qualitative approach using case studies are employed, where school marketing issues are explored through focus group discussion and content analysis. The focus group discussion involves eight teachers who teach at this school. The results show that all the 7 elements (7Ps) in marketing mix (product, place, price, promotion, people, process and physical evidence) are given due attention. The findings of this study can assist school leaders to understand the marketing mix elements that are important to parents when choosing a school for their children. Understanding the concept of marketing is vital to school leaders to remain competitive in today's competitive environment.
