Optimizing the Learning Environment

Students perform best in high performance schools where the physical learning environment is comfortable, quiet, well-ventilated and well-lit. Children demonstrate this fact in classrooms every day. Teachers confirm it. And it is proven by research time and time again.

Effective learning environments are, in part, the result of high performance school design followed by proper maintenance and regular upgrades throughout the life of the building. Best practices in school design and maintenance can produce a number of positive outcomes:

  • Higher test scores

  • Increased average daily attendance

  • Lower operational costs

  • Improved teacher satisfaction and retention4
