Best Mounting Heights for Classroom Whiteboards

Classroom whiteboards should be mounted at a height appropriate to the age of the students in the room or the grade level of the school. Check out the following suggested best mounting heights in elementary schools, high schools and colleges and universities. These recommended height positions are based on the common height of dry erase whiteboards, which is 4 feet. The measurement is the height of the white board from the floor.

  • Best Classroom Whiteboards4K through 4th grade – 2′ 4″ from floor
  • 5th and 6th grades – 2′ 8″ from floor
  • 7th and 8th grades – 2′ 10″ from floor

Magnetic and Non-Magnetic Whiteboards for Classroom Use

Schools commonly install magnetic whiteboards at the front of a classroom and non-magnetic whiteboards on the side or back walls. The recommended mounting height for those classroom whiteboards is the same. Read more about selecting a magnetic or non-magnetic marker board.

EVERWhite manufactures and sells a wide variety of non-staining classroom whiteboards, as well as dry erase boards for conference and meeting rooms, for school sports team training rooms, for locker rooms, and for use on the field or court. Our dry erase boards come in sizes as narrow as 1 foot and as wide as 20 feet, but custom size whiteboards also are available. Just ask; We Can Do That!

EVERWhite also manufactures whiteboards with graphics commonly used in education, such as penmanship lines, music staff lines, and grids. We also offer boards that have a combination of a dry erase surface and cork panels.

See our custom whiteboards page for more information on graphic dry erase marker boards for K-12 schools, colleges and universities. These include dry erase boards for classrooms as well as for sports, and strength and conditioning training. Our gallery has some great examples of what we’ve created!
