STR works with more than 100 elementary schools in Illinois. During primary school years, a child acquires new skills and knowledge in preparation for middle or junior high school. Our new schools create welcoming, nurturing learning environments supportive of a child’s social and intellectual development. Flexible classrooms facilitate 21st century learning with smart technology, ample storage, writing surfaces, and easily reconfigurable furnishings. Dimmable, energy-saving LED light fixtures, easily adjustable window treatments, excellent indoor air quality, and proper acoustics create comfortable spaces for students to engage with their learning community.
