No More Trouble Finding the Right Classroom Furniture

One of the biggest complaints from classroom furniture buyers, and understandably so, is that no single store has everything they need. A piece here and a piece there, but no comprehensive way to buy each and every piece with one purchase. Consumers are picky and they should be. Colors, styles, and designs are crucial to […]

Virco Technology Tables Hide Obnoxious Wires

Some day in the future, our wide ranging technologies will not need to charge every few hours. We’ll have a laptop or a phone that can hold a charge for weeks or even months. Or so we’d like to believe. For now, however, our laptops, our Kindles, and our phones will all have to get […]

Virco Open-Front Desk Great for Departmentalization

Years ago, every classroom in every school was considered to be a self-contained learning environment. One teacher would be responsible for the same 20 students (approximately) within each subject area. In other words, if you were a 9-year-old Fourth Grader at Johnson Elementary School, you might have known some of the other teachers on your […]

Around this time of year, the main subject for elementary school math teachers is geometry.

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 […]

Virco Turns Your Students into Jr. Executives

Giving students a sense of ownership over their belongings and their space is a great idea, but not always easy in practice. We want our kids to feel empowered, but still respectful of the authorities placed over their supervision. To manage our own natural apprehensions, we must gradually provide our teenage students with the type […]

Setting the Parameters of Your Teacher Desk

When students walk into their classroom everyday, there are two focal points that they notice: their desk and their teacher’s desk. Classroom Furniture has spent a great deal of time addressing student work areas and the plethora of Virco options for individual desks. Now we’d like to bring attention to the teacher desk, a dominant […]

Virco Manufacturing Company is a leading maker and supplier of K-12 furnishings, including a vast resource for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms. […]
