In this study, field surveys were conducted in a junior high school to evaluate the classroom environment on academic performance. It was estimated by a arithmetic test and a questionnaire. In addition, energy consumption for air conditioning to create the indoor quality was estimated by computer simulation. As the result of the field surveys, the academic performance tended to decline slightly at low temperature, although there wasn't a high correlation between indoor temperature and academic performance. This tendency corresponded with the late-teen students but not with the adults. As the result of the energy simulation, to raise the room temperature by one degree was a few hundred yen per one student.
