Building upon the success of the district’s new Montessori model, the new Sands Montessori School is 86,000 square feet and boasts the same classroom standards that were developed by SHP at the new Pleasant Ridge Montessori School. Located in a neighborhood setting, the new school was constructed on the same site as the existing school while the old school remained in operation.
Key features include:
- Two outdoor learning centers that highlight the core of the building and blend with the natural setting.
- Roof monitors that provide daylight to the second floor extended learning area and gymnasium, sloped ceilings in the classrooms and white roofs.
- Expanded classrooms to accommodate the flexible learning styles of the curriculum as well as additional storage needs.
- Extended learning areas that serve each classroom pod and provide space for both large and small group study.
