Elementary school is a time of colossal academic and development growth. Successful K–5 environments evolve with these students, as they learn, think, work and fidget across every age and stage.
Foster a love of learning
From first books to first best friends, elementary school kids are primed for new discoveries. Formal learning of the fundamentals replaces play-based learning. Foster a love of learning in safe, welcoming spaces with predictable routines that grow curiosity and self-control.
Define spaces and activities
Primary school kids are eager learners – and rule followers. Elementary school classroom furniture helps define spaces and direct behavior for academic and social-emotional learning.
Smith System’s innovative furniture outfits small- and whole-group areas, classroom activity zones and tutoring spaces, STEAM, reading nooks, calm-down spots, media centers, outdoor learning and more. Our classroom management tools for educators include customizable teacher desks and mobile storage units (with transferrable totes and trays).
Provide furniture made for growing bodies and minds
Just like adults, kids learn better when they’re comfortable. It improves concentration. Well-designed, right-sized furniture helps students take ownership of their education. They feel like their chair, table or cubby (with their name!) was made just for them. Smith System offers:
- Adjustable chairs, desks and tables sized by grade level [Height guide]
- Active seating that let kids wiggle, twist and rock
- Furniture in fun shapes with rounded corners
- Built-in ergonomic support and connectivity
- Nimble furniture that students can configure
Color their world
Our elementary school furniture comes in a range of color options and accents. K–3 grades often prefer primary colors. Grades 4–5 favor a preteen palette that’s slightly more subdued, especially as they begin to eye middle-school-cool.
Choose quality elementary school furniture – and check the warranty
When selecting school furniture, check the warranty. It should reflect the manufacturer’s confidence in their product. Many companies provide a one-year limited warranty. Smith System offers a lifetime warranty on frames and legs, and a 12-year warranty on tables and desktops.
