Recently we have had the good fortune of purchasing adjoining properties at 1211 and 1215 Texaco Road. The implementation of a campus wide management plan, the first stage being the re-development of the properties, will occur within the next two years.  The outcomes will focus on student safety, improved traffic flow, parking, and ecologically sound practices.  This plan, along with future implementation phases, will allow our school to continue to remain in the forefront of Montessori schools in Lexington and across the nation.
