School Expansion Project – Board Votes to Sell Orovada Building & Empty Lot

By November 18, 2019January 8th, 2020School Expansion Project

High Desert Montessori School completed a monumental step towards expanding our school facilities in the last week!

High Desert Montessori is selling the Orovada building and adjacent empty lot.  We will be moving the entire school to the Silverada side of the street which includes the current 1 story building and a complete renovation of the 3 story building which will give us 53,000 square feet of indoor space. We plan to lease the Orovada building until we receive our Certificate of Occupancy for the 3 story building. Our timeline for completion of this project is about 2 years out. In addition, we will be renovating our outdoor spaces to include 63,000 square feet of gardens, playgrounds and open spaces for our students to enjoy. The school is working with JK Architecture and they will be presenting our final concept renderings soon. If you are interested in attending, facilities expansion is discussed monthly at the PTO and HDMS Board meetings. We thank the HDMS Board of Directors for their vision and support of this important project which will take HDMS into a new and exciting phase as a school.
