School cafeterias are places where everyone comes together during the school day. They represent a key opportunity to inspire school pride and a sense of community among students—and the design of the space can help foster this spirit. Students are subconsciously comparing the cafeteria to their favorite retail food chains when they’re dining, and too often the cafeteria comes up short. Consider adding to traditional picnic-style seating with seating you might see at a restaurant of café, such as booths and café-style tables made of more comfortable materials. These would make the space more inviting, giving students another place to gather and collaborate on their studies. School cafeterias can also become more functional by supporting informal learning activities when they’re not being used for food service.
