Students, board members, teachers and staff at Lowcountry Montessori, along with Rep. Shannon Erickson, helped celebrate breaking ground on the school’s permanent facility on Thursday, November 20.
Thomas Construction Group is building the 20,000-square-foot facility which will be two separate buildings that will house more than 250 students. The school plans to relocate mid-year when the facility is finished in the spring.
“We are thrilled to have a facility that will meet the needs of a Montessori classroom and our students. It is fantastic to see the concept of our school become a reality and it is happening,” stated Amy Horn, director of Lowcountry Montessori.
Laura McKeown, Lowcountry Montessori assistant director, said, “We are fortunate to be the first charter school in the area to design and build our own building.”
The foundation work will begin shortly and the school hopes to see walls going up soon.
