High school campus maps commonly feature text labels for the main resources on campus, such as the counseling center, library, gymnasium and principal's office, to make it easy for parents and students to locate them. On most maps, each classroom features a numerical label signifying the room number.
Although high school campuses vary widely in layout and facilities, other common features on campus maps include the location of the parking lots, the girls' and boys' locker rooms, administrative buildings, sporting fields or courts, and the restrooms. If there are separate parking lots for faculty members and students, the map may indicate this to prevent confusion. Clear labels on practice courts are useful so parents can easily identify where to pick up their children after sporting practice.
In schools with elaborate gymnasiums or fitness centers, it is helpful if different athletic facilities have their own labels to make it easy for students to find their gym classes. For example, some schools have a separate weight room, indoor pool room or dance studio in addition to the main gym. Some schools, such as Redwood High School in Larkspur, California, and Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, California, even have a smaller and a larger gym that are labeled separately on their campus maps.
