Enhancing Now Envisioning Futures
High Schools


STEM and STEAM curricula are continually evolving, and decades-old classrooms and labs are often unable to support the quality of instruction desired today. STR designs new and converted STEM and STEAM classrooms to accommodate new technology and improve student and teacher safety. We design our spaces to be adaptable, benchmarked, and measurable, helping schools keep up with frequent changes in technology and curriculum.
