The Importance of Classroom Desks in Daily Education

Studies indicate that many students, especially in the elementary grades, are sitting at desks that are not the right size for them. Anyone who has visited a standard classroom can see this for themselves as students' legs dangle or their knees bump the surface under the desk. Providing comfortable and correctly-fitting classroom desks and chairs for students is essential for learning.

Students who do not fit in their classroom desks are more likely to fidget, stand up, or sit in an inappropriate fashion. The student will be distracted by his or her own discomfort and often be distracting others, as well. Ensuring that students are comfortable at the beginning of the school year will save teachers time and hassle and cutting down on distractions will also help increase student performance.

Taking comfort provisions too far, however, can create problems. Some experts have suggested schools purchase ergonomic and adjustable chairs like those used in offices, but teachers and others are quick to decry this solution. Providing 20 children with chairs that move up and down, have adjustable arms or backs, or swivel not only contributes to classroom distraction, but also makes injuries more likely.

There is a middle ground with classroom desks and chairs that meets comfort needs, as well as requirements for a formal education setting. Such items are available in different heights and sizes without the adjustable options, are finished in suitable colors for a positive learning environment, and work in a variety of classroom settings and layouts.

Our products are the best of both worlds. We offer classroom desks with or without storage space and in large and wide sizes, desks for multiple students, and all-in-one chair and desk combos. We understand the needs of modern classrooms and provide options for technological and cooperative learning environments.
