Learning environments that shape the next generation

Modern spaces for next-generation learning

A school is more than a place – it’s a tool that prepares students for life beyond the classroom. The spaces within a school inspire how lessons are presented and information is absorbed. The “sage on a stage” model of the previous century has transformed into dynamic, student-focused instructional techniques built for the next generation.

As education has evolved, so have the spaces in which we learn:

  • Learning environments reflect the understanding that learning is a highly personal journey and that all students learn differently.
  • Safety and security in learning environments is top of mind. This starts with creating welcoming spaces that reflect the community and make students feel at home. Layered access throughout the building provides additional measures to create a safe and secure building.
  • Learning environments embrace the diversity of the community, feel inclusive, and address the needs of the whole child.

In the same way that learning is personal to students, JLG knows that the learning environment is personal to the vision and values of the community. Everyone is invested in student success, and JLG engages with stakeholders to create solutions that empower learning while serving community interests. We bring our expertise to each project to work with your community’s vision for learning to create the ideal environment for your students to thrive.

INSPIRE: K12 Education Update | Built for Change

There is no shortage in the number of changes that are impacting educators today. Educators have always been adaptable, creative, and resourceful in meeting the needs of their students. However, over the last few years, the rate at which our educators have been forced to adapt to changing needs and ideas has rapidly increased, and there is no sign of slowing down.
