Space & Storage Capacity

An open floor plan gives a sense of value to every building. To convey the value of your school to parents, a dome is perfect for gaining and keeping trust. The high ceilings fights the feeling of being cramped or crowded. Plus, the high ceilings are perfect for when students are playing sports or horse-playing to protect the ceiling from damaging blows.
