Furniture for K-12 Education

Furniture is a vital part of modern, technologically integrated learning spaces. The right K-12 classroom furniture sets the tone for Social/Emotional Learning. It facilitates Career Technical Education principles while incorporating emerging teaching and learning styles and simultaneously serving co-located students.

STS EDUCATION and our vendor partners strive to create learning spaces that aren’t just functional and future-proof but also efficient and purposefully designed to raise student outcomes.

what we do

Welcome Them Back to the Classroom with A ‘Whoah’

Traditional classrooms foster traditional outcomes, but K-12 educational spaces are changing.

Future-proof learning spaces with configurable, connected, and considered furniture serving integrated learning space designs from STS EDUCATION.

A good percentage of K-12 students have spent some portion of the last few years in a makeshift learning environment. This setup typically consisted of a kitchen table or desk in their bedroom with a laptop, and whatever chair was available. The lighting was likely less than optimal, acoustics were probably poor, technical issues constantly arose, and in many cases, hindered learning. How often was a student marked ‘absent’ from a class because their Zoom call dropped in the middle of a lesson? On top of that, students sat still at their learning station for hours with very little interaction besides a talking head on a flat screen.

Welcome them back to class with a wow! New learning methods require new types of furniture, from reconfigurable desks and seating to soft surfaces, designated privacy or rest areas, and telepresence technology to serve remote students. Future proof your school learning spaces and encourage the return to in-person learning with K-12 furniture from STS.

Our K-12 Furniture Solutions

Furniture to Support Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) benefits are well-recognized. An SEL-focused education results in positive outcomes for students, the adults they become, and school communities. Classroom furnishing is integral to making students feel safe, welcome, connected, and free to socialize and interact. Soft surfaces make students feel comfortable. Modular furniture lets students converge in small groups, discuss, break up, and reform. Non-traditional furniture can be used in therapy or counseling spaces to encourage students to relax and open up.

 

Furniture to Support CTE Outcomes

Career and Technical Education has come a long way from Home Economics and Wood Shop. Students are now learning alternative forms of becoming working professionals- podcasting, shoutcasting, video production, casting, ESports tournaments, music and art production, and more. Modern CTE learning spaces mirror the environments that students will work in as adults, ensuring a seamless transition from learning to work.

 

Furniture for STEM Labs

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) spaces have different needs than traditional instructor-led lecture spaces. Students must be comfortably seated in ample working space, in a group, with easy access to the technology at hand. These spaces also need to be set up for high-definition visibility so that the instructor can facilitate learning from anywhere in the room.

Flexible Furniture for Multi-Use Spaces

The activity that defines a learning space determines what furnishings it needs. Whether you need a multi-station room to support CTE outcomes, a wide-open space with movable furniture on casters, or a 32-seat ESports coaching and shoutcasting setup, STS provides whatever you need to make your space whatever you want. STS also has award-winning, working educators on staff to consult and make recommendations about how to outfit your learning spaces.

Modern Classroom Furniture for Traditional Classroom Spaces

There will probably always be a place for the traditional classroom setup, so STS also carries a full line of desks, chairs, and other traditional furniture that you can reconfigure as needed.
