    No I don't think so, look at the people that are going to be using it and place it a comfortable height for them

    The manufacturers installation instructions will normally give you standard installation heights of course you can go higher or lower depending on your specific requirements.

    What sort of projector are you using?

    You also need to take into account the layout of the room and the visibility of the board. Check that the board is visible from the back of the room for students who are at most of average height. There is no point putting the boards at the perfect height of the user if the image is not visible. If you do need to put the board in a low height then you need to think about mounting the board higher and putting in a step for the user.

    The most important thing is the type of projector. Then once you have understood the constraints that puts on the board, the rest is as others have said.

    Ultra short Throw and Short Throw projectors have very specific look-up tables dictating their position relative to the screen. This form a constraint with the ceiling, and the topmost edge of the screen.

    If it is not of this type, consider the pole height for ceiling mount - you don't want it to be too low in the room, but also you don't want to have to keystone to much either.

    Other than that, find an average height female member of staff, and ask them to reach as far up as comfortable with a pen, and set that as the top most edge of the screen (don't forget that the border will make the top edge of the board higher than this point). Then check visibility of the bottom edge of the screen from various locations in the classroom.

    In my expereince boards in science labs have to be mounted higher than elsewhere due to desk height. Primary schools tend to have them substantially lower.
