Insights for portable classrooms
- Select furniture that can be repurposed for use in the main school building after construction or student populations change.
- Use flexible furniture that can change height or be reconfigured easily so it can support multiple use situations, teaching methodologies, or student ages.
- Because many portables are leased, design the space to use freestanding furniture elements versus built-ins.
- Make the spaces fun and covetable so students look forward to going to the portable.
