Our team at Bienenstock has been building outdoor learning and play spaces for two decades and we are excited to introduce the OutClass™ outdoor classroom system.

OutClass™ offers a natural, flexible, pedagogically sound approach to quickly scaling up your classroom capacity outside to take the pressure off your teachers and school inside.

We offer an array of OutClass™ packages. Take a look at our standard options below. If you’re interested in a custom build, or would like to add additional components to your project, please don’t hesitate to give us a shout, we’d be more than happy to walk you through the process.

Blackboards are specially coated steel that resists the elements and facilitates easier graffiti removal. They are two sided to provide opportunities for four groups of four to break out and still observe physical distancing protocols. Carefully designed to stand 18” above the field, they provide open sight-lines at the ground plane allowing the entire classroom to meet CPTED Guidelines for supervision.
