Trumansburg Montessori School

The Trumansburg Montessori School opened its doors in September 2013. Built on the traditions of the one-room schoolhouse, modern features include a super insulated building shell, Passive House levels of airtightness, and extensive use of recycled and locally-sourced materials. It is heated with a ductless minisplit, and a heat recovery ventilator provides fresh air. It was built over the course of a year largely with volunteer/work-trade labor. http://www.tburgmontessori.com/one-room-schoolhouse/
