Post occupancy evaluation as a well-established building performance evaluation tool, attempts to provide a link between building design and the operation and maintenance stages, using occupants’ feedback mechanism. It provides acceptable balance between aesthetics and functionality of the building. This paper examines the potential benefits of carrying out POE in school buildings in Nigeria and how it contributes to maintainability. The study draws data from an earlier research carried out by the authors using semi-structured one-on-one interview questionnaire. 27 Respondents drawn from the management cadre of Rivers State Ministry of Education spread through 12 selected schools in 6 local government areas of River State, . The data was qualitatively analyzed using simple percentages with thematic analysis. Findings showed that over 70% of respondents admitted that there are potential benefits derived from adopting POE which include planning and budgeting for improving, replacing buildings and its facilities; operation and maintenance to address short-comings, incorporating future maintenance plan and management standards with proffered solutions to government. The study thus recommends the use of POE information to quantify performances to compare with best practices.
