Report School is a geometric sans-serif font inspired by student handwriting practice worksheets. Rather than adhering to pure geometry, Report School favors readability. When you want to mimic the style of handwriting practice sheets but you want something easy to read, Report School is the perfect choice.
Don’t use straight quotes for inches, feet or degrees; use primes. Report School has regular primes, double primes and triple primes. Numerals are tabular (vertically aligning) for easier math equation alignment. Other tabular characters include: parentheses, brackets, bar, Omega, pi, micro, Delta, asterisk, degree, percent and all math operators. The infinity and @ are a bit wider than a digit. Superior and inferior numerals are not tabular. If you’d like to use a slash instead of a standard division symbol, use the division slash. It’s the same width as a numerals and vertically aligned with numerals. If you need a blank space that’s exactly that same width as a numeral, use a “figure space”. (Unicode 2007)
Fractions and perthousand are exactly 1.5 digits wide. The new Indian rupee and Turkish lira currency symbols are included. In OpenType savvy applications such as InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop, you can use the stylistic alternates feature access the letters I and J with no serifs as well as a straight lowercase q.
