The room has bare white walls and an exposed concrete floor, and there are four windows on the back wall and two windows visible on the wall to the right; all the windows have black blinds covering the bottom two-thirds. In the center of the room are three student desks with child-sized black plastic chairs. Surrounding the desks are seven easels that hold large placards filled with photos and text.
