Elementary School would work well for a school site but would also work well for just about any site aimed toward parents. The template has a color scheme that makes it something that parents would naturally associate with younger children. The template comes set up as a site for an elementary school, however, making it a great choice for a business such as a charter school, private school or any other facility that provides care and education for children and families.
Elementary School has a design that makes it easy to navigate but also makes it possible to get a great deal of content on the page. The template includes an image area on the top of the page, just below the navigation and logo. The navigation is multicolored and features a nice rollover effect. All of the coding that makes up the site is done to web authoring standards. This means that effect such as rollovers and drop-down menus are done in a way that ensures that search engine crawlers can read them and that ensures that those same crawlers can follow the links throughout your site.
The slider area allows you to put a very large image right on the top of the screen. The template has a width of 1,980 pixels, so it would obviously be possible to put a very large and impressive image in this spot. The three content areas below the image allow you to use larger fonts and creative typographical layouts to get the attention of visitors. The footer area can be used to place another module on the page. This template is built for the Joomla 1.7 content management system, so anybody who is familiar with that system should be able to get his or her own site up and running with this template.
Elementary School can be purchased as a standard, downloaded product. It can also be purchased with installation services provided, so that you only have to worry about customizing the template, not installing it. If you wish, you can have the template removed from the market altogether after you purchase it. This is, by far, a much more expensive option but for private institutions that want to make this design a part of their overall image, purchasing a template out right might be a great option. The source code files used to create this template are included with it, allowing professional designers to make any changes needed.
