The names will vary from school to school. Some names will be very unique to a certain school. When I was a student in Arizona, for example, the "principal's office" was called the "warden's office". A warden is, of course, "administrador/diretor de prisao". The school once had classes in an abandoned prison!
Here are some names that I recall from my school days from long, long ago:
ATTENDANCE OFFICE = the office with responsibility for verifying the presence of students
AUDIO VISUAL = where film equipment is kept
AUTO SHOP = where students learn how to repair and maintain cars
CAFETERIA = where students can buy full meals
CHEMISTRY LAB = chemistry classrooms
COMPUTER LAB = where students use computers
GYM = gymnasium (They usually have offices for physical education teachers.)
JANITORIAL = where janitors keep supplies, receive special requests
NURSE'S OFFICE = where the school nurse works, a student comes here when ill or injured
PHOTOCOPY = where copies are made
PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE = where the principal works (If a student gets into trouble, he is often sent to the principal's or vice principal's office. Often a vice principal is in charge of discipline.)
QUAD = I have heard this used to mean an outside area where students can talk, play games, etc.
SNACK BAR = were students can buy candy, soft drinks, juices.
SUPPLIES = books, chalk, erasers
TEACHERS LOUNGE = a room where teachers can rest, eat lunch
WOODSHOP = carpentry classrooms/workshops for students
