    2006 hanissaberz teacher, Thank you! I know school.

    But what I mean is that there are many buildings like this in a school. What should I call one of them.

    Eg. He is studying in that school building or teaching building.

    Thank you again!

    No, the school is the buiilding. You do not have other buildings inside a building. You have rooms inside a building. The rooms inside a school are mostly classrooms.

    Could it be 'block'? He is studying in the science block.
    One of the many individual buildings which make up a big school.

    Perhaps this is what you mean?

    Block would do- the Science Block, Maths Block, etc. That's what I'd use as a British English speaker. If it's not for a specific subject, it could have a name or letter- the C Block, etc.
