Iroquois Middle School - Second Floor Classroom

GRHC - 2008

This classroom has school desks and chairs as well as a table in the foreground. The floor is hardwood and there are air vents on the left high wall on either side of a speaker. In front of the bulletin boards are cardboard boxes labeled in blue and packed with school supplies ready for moving. On the back wall a large whiteboard has replaced the original slate blackboards. A pull-down projection screen is above the whiteboard. On the right is an original wooden door with a glass window. A file cabinet and office equipment are just to the right of the door. The ceiling reveals lighting fixtures, exposed pipes and a truss support.
