Developing a Long Term Relationship with Classroom Furniture

No More Dragging Desks with New Virco Agile Series

Kids love to be a teacher’s helper. They want to sharpen pencils. They want to file papers. They want to sweep the floor. For teachers, these are just the everyday tasks that make up the job, but for students, these small responsibilities give them a sense of value and importance in the classroom. Students become […]

Achieving Ergonomics with Virco

One of the most popular, but underrated topics in classroom furniture is ergonomics, a study of the relationship between people and the environments that either do or do not enhance their physical and cognitive qualities. For years, men and women have been taught not to slouch or demonstrate poor posture, but the furniture we gravitate […]

Virco Chair Desk Satisfies Classroom Necessities

Last summer, introduced buyers to the Martest 21 Desk Chair, a school furniture product that alleviates the need for buying two different pieces, then having more of one than you need of the other. If you’re a teacher, you know exactly what this means. Excess chairs, but not enough desks. Too many desks, not […]

Virco Open-Front Desk Great for Departmentalization

Geometry at their age means understanding shapes, angles, area, and three dimensional objects. […]

Virco Creates School Furniture with Corporate Stewardship

Classroom Furniture designers are always in danger of creating a product that looks interesting, but doesn’t meet the needs of educators and students in the field. Virco operates on an entirely different ideal. They’ve established a program called Corporate Stewardship that was designed to satisfy their overall mission and deliver competitive, sustainable returns to those […]

Solving the Crowded Classroom with Virco

One of the greatest challenges that every teacher faces is the arrangement of his/her classroom furniture throughout the school year. Educators do their best to maximize space, yet they’re often forced to accept extra desks, extra chairs, extra cabinets, and extra tables simply because there’s no other place to put the additional school furniture. Enter […]

Adjusting the Right Hand Tablet with Virco

On Thursday, focused on the popular Virco Metaphor Series, describing several of the products that make up the collection. One item that was not mentioned is the Chair Desk with an articulating right hand tablet arm.
