In the EL Education model, the physical space of the school reflects and supports the learning environment and the values of the school. When people enter the school, they are immediately aware that they are in a place that celebrates learning. The walls of the school are filled with high-quality student work showcased in common spaces and classrooms. Student work is displayed in a way that honors the work, giving parts of the school a museum quality that inspires student and community pride. Work is often supported by explanatory text that includes student voice and reflection. The mission of the school is evident to guests, students, and teachers in every hallway. 

Student achievement—academic, artistic, athletic, and work in character and citizenship—is honored in public spaces. Students themselves are leaders in caring for common spaces within the school and on the school grounds, helping to make and keep the school as beautiful as possible.
