Updates from Huntsburg
Major projects are well under way at the Huntsburg campus as part of the capital campaign. Obviously, our Upper School building is rising. But also, the “Bike Barn” has been converted to a beautiful auxiliary classroom and the Guren House has been renovated and expanded to become a 16 student Upper School dormitory.
The campaign will benefit both campuses by providing funding for projects, such as a strategic plan of growth for the Concord Campus’s increasing enrollment, raising additional funds for the endowment to increase sustainability for the whole school and to expand financial aid for students.
We are excited to be constructing a classroom building that is in alignment with our values. Care of the environment is a pillar of Hershey Montessori School’s core philosophy and includes implementing the highest respect possible for nature, the environment and sustainability. These values are reflected in the vision and building goals of the new Upper School classroom building.
Our school is the first in the Midwest being designed and built to Passive House Institute of the United States, PHIUS, strict design principles committed to reducing energy consumption in building practices. This will also create significant savings in operation costs.
