ADA Signage for Elementary & High Schools

Elementary Schools

Middle Schools

High Schools


With hundreds or even thousands of children roaming the halls of your school every day, chances are some of them have unique needs. Those students may have trouble finding their way around the building, which can cause them distress and leave them feeling excluded from the school experience. That’s why making certain accommodations is essential.


Having ADA-compliant elementary school signs or high school signs installed in your building can make navigation much simpler, especially for young children or those with visual impairments. It can also go a long way toward creating a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all. Everyone who enters your school will be able to get the information they need easily.

Why Choose Erie Custom Signs for Interior School Signage?

Like any school administrator, you know that your school is legally required to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. But more than that, you understand why those rules are in place—to prevent discrimination against those with disabilities and ensure everyone has equal access. So, you want to improve inclusivity in your school by installing the proper school signage. Unfortunately, not all sign companies offer ADA-compliant elementary or high school signs. And finding one with the necessary skills, knowledge, and tools can be a challenge. But that’s where Erie Custom Signs comes in.

What Types of ADA Elementary or High School Signs Should You Have?

Room number signsBy labeling rooms with room number signs, you can make it easier for children to navigate the building. It’s also helpful for guardians and visitors who come to the school for parent­–teacher conferences and other special events.

Directional signsYour school should have signs directing to important locations, such as the gymnasium, cafeteria, and library. Elementary school or high school signs that offer directions can make visitors and new students feel more at ease.

Restroom signsRestroom signs are not only required under the ADA but also extremely helpful for students, staff, and visitors. By labeling all restrooms with signage featuring corresponding images, you can ensure everyone can locate the right one.

Room signsYour building likely has rooms that serve specific functions. In that case, it’s vital that you identify these permanent spaces with room signs. Having elementary school signs or high school signs for identification is a must under the ADA.

“We have been using Erie Custom Signs for our ADA signage needs since 2013. I can’t say enough about their entire team, everyone from sales, to the art department, to production. We have not sent them a design concept yet, where Erie said “we can’t do that”. Instead they find ways to get it done and make it happen, and within our budget. From pricing, the amzing turn around time, to the quality of the final product, you are not going to find a more professional, friendly and reliable source for your ADA signage needs, than the team at Erie.”
