Natural lighting is an important consideration in effective classroom design to support learning activities. The most important factors in maximizing natural lighting are facade design, window openings, and building orientation. The purpose of this study is to assess the quality of natural lighting in the SMA Negeri (SMAN)/ Public High school 6 DKI Jakarta school building. This study examines how the design of window openings and facades affects lighting quality and how current classroom design conditions affect students’ comfort while carrying out learning activities. The analysis in this study uses the DIALux software to simulate and measure the level of natural lighting in classroom and laboratory. From the results of the study, it was found that the level of natural lighting has met the standard but still needs to be optimized by classroom design factors such as window height positions, student heights position, and some interior attributes.
