K-12 Education

Design can reinforce existing behaviors or spark new ones. In schools, we’re working with teachers to transform learning.

LaBella has been serving K-12 clients for over three decades. From pre-referendum to the last addendum, we’re committed advocates for our districts. In LaBella’s K-12 studio, we’ve always understood that schools need to be high performing and maintenance friendly. However, educational design requires more than that - it requires an understanding of the evolving classroom.

Our partnerships with K-12 school districts have been long lasting and formative. We’ve completed over $800 million in capital projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.

School’s In Session

It’s easy to rest on the expertise acquired in over 30 years of design for K-12.  We’ve completed over $800 million in Capital Projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two.

However, we believe experience alone isn’t enough to add real value to our clients. Just as our industry and business has evolved, so has education.  The science of learning has advanced, and so too must our classrooms.

In Session is an awareness that for us, school is always in session. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from  across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.  We spend time researching the questions and issues facing our clients and share what we learn here with you.
