Flexible Seating offered in Lower School

"If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." -John Dewey

Flexible Seating, while different from what many of us are used to with respect to how a classroom may look, allows our students to make a conscious choice about where they will be able to do their best work. Many of our students work and learn in different ways; therefore the immediate environment where they do their work and learning should match their learning style. Kayla Delzer, a pioneer in the realm of Flexible Seating, often describes the Flexible Seating classroom like a Starbucks. When you walk into a Starbucks to do some work, you have the option of sitting at the bar, on the couches or armchairs, or at a small or large table. You would choose the spot where you feel you would do your best work and be most comfortable. That seating choice might also be different depending on what you are working on. Why shouldn't students have that very same choice? Flexible Seating allows our students to find a place where they are most comfortable and are able to create their best products in a flexible environment.
