  • Building Information

  • Murray Lasaine MontessoriThe existing Murray LaSaine Elementary School was built in 1956. Due to the aging building and infrastructure, the school was slated to be renovated to meet current 21st-century learning environment and to support the conversion of the school into a Montessori program. Renovations included a full interior remodel, new roof, windows, and entry. Whole systems were upgraded throughout the building including a new HVAC system to allow for individual controls for every classroom. The design for the facility encompassed incorporating Montessori’s deep reverence for the natural world by the use of wood, natural light, and earth-toned color pallet
