The classroom temperature and size were measured using a thermometer and a tape-measure, respectively. A digital lux meter was used to determine the classroom lighting and reflection. One sample t-test was used to analyze the obtained results.Findings: In this study, 25% of the classes had suitable lighting. However, none of the studied toilets had suitable lighting. About 66.7% of schools had a sufficient number of WC according to the relevant guidelines. The number of water drinking taps in all of the schools was in accordance to the relevant standards. About 91.7% of the studied schools had adequate space for each student according to guidelines. However, the area of playing fields was not sufficient in 91.7% of the schools. None of the schools met the standards for the classroom and corridor walls' conditions in terms of height of stone installation.Conclusion: According to the results, in some of the schools, bench properties, lighting intensity of classrooms, corridors, WC, and the library, and playground area, the amount of light reflection in the classrooms, the distance of water drinking taps from WC, classroom walls' conditions, and solid waste separation were not desirable. Thus, greater coordination is required between schools' HEALTH departments, the provincial vice chancellor for HEALTH, and the state education and training department to solve these problems.
