Educational spaces and their design are one of the most influential factors in learning, and the classroom is considered the most important learning environment in the educational space. It is responsible for responding to people and their changing needs.

Therefore, the educational space should have the necessary coordination with the age and educational level of the students, considering that educational spaces have the greatest influence and role on the mentality and civilization of the society.

In some developed countries, due to this importance, spaces are designed using appropriate models and standards that have been considered from the perspective of educational science and psychology in addition to technical and architectural techniques. In this research, in order to achieve an ideal and flexible classroom, descriptive and analytical methods and library documentation techniques have been used and we will have an overview of the environmental factors that use architectural themes to facilitate student learning to better deliver the curriculum by professors.

As noted in the psychology of child development and education and research, several factors influence a child's learning, one of which is the learning environment. A school with an appropriate and child-friendly space can influence children, the development of talents, the formation of personality, and moral and social values. It can also affect the rate of their learning and lay a good foundation for their future education.

Therefore, school buildings must be creative and a stimulating environment for free-thinking and creative expression. In this case, with this kind of school, the child shows a great desire to attend it, and it influences the child to even become more independent. Finally, attending school and being in an educational environment will lay the foundation for the student’s interest in learning. The type of building has a significant impact on the learning process of the student and also on the quality, health, and desirability of the learning environment.
