In this study, spatial relatedness of three different primary school projects (I, L and E type projects) applied throughout Turkey were analyzed mathematically with the method of space syntax. With graph theory methodology, spatial structure of primary schools obtained and compared with each other according to connectivity degrees and spatial structures. As a result of comparisons, the integration, connectivity and mean depth values of the classrooms, social spaces and lecturer rooms have been analyzed. For obtaining the comparisons, syntactical analyses have been done and justified graph maps have been analyzed. These maps have drawn with software of space syntax methodology named “Depthmap”. According to study, the perceptibility and readability of primary school building project which has selected in three different types (I, L and E) can easily be detected by using space syntax method. As a result of syntactic analyses I type project showed the most satisfactory results in all cases investigated. I type project has been preferred by Turkish Government to the other projects, L and E. The results showed that, the method’s testing is a powerful tool for evaluation of the existing educations buildings.
