Claren Academy is using a large classroom for mixed grades, so furniture like Fitneff's standing desk will be a wonderful addition to the Academy's fluid, flexible space.
Fitneff is proud to be providing a health-focused standing desk that gives the students a choice to stand while they work and improve mentally and physically.

Fitneff and Stand2Learn Team are proud to be leading the paradigm shift in schools to allow students to move more towards creating healthier, happier, and smarter children!
Thank-you to everyone who participated signed up for and shared our contest. You have all helped make it such a big success!
