Sussex School Building

Sussex School is an established K-8 independent private school founded in 1971 with a primary educational focus on creative, hands-on learning. The new facility wraps seven new classrooms around a central courtyard and is designed to create an environment that enhances learning, expression, and inquisitiveness. Sussex is the first school in Montana to be awarded a LEED Gold Certification. The building will be a demonstration tool using solar hot water, solar PV, rainwater storage/re-use, highly insulated envelope and windows, highly efficient heating system, passive cooling system and solar tubes through the roof for additional natural light.
