This paper presents selected issues concerning sustainable schools design to promote health. The results of research on the therapeutic impact of contact with nature are discussed. Next, three educational facilities are presented as examples of good practices – two from France and one from Poland. Those schools were selected because of innovative architectural design and sustainable construction technologies. The first case is Groupe Scolaire des Sciences et de la Biodiversité Robert Doisneau in France, where the school gardens are located on the roof and terraces. The second case is the Pôle Molière school in Les Mureaux, which became the cultural center of the district. The third case is a wooden school in Gdańsk.
