Some info about the project.
Client: Desert Sage School
Date Completed: Fundraising Package 2008
Aptus provided a master plan for Desert Sage School (DSS), pro-bono. DSS is a preschool to 4th grade academy dedicated to providing a unique, affordable, and “green” learning environment for children ages six weeks through 10 years old in the Las Vegas Valley. DSS caters to families concerned about “embracing nature as an extension of the classroom…”
The school would provide students with an eco-friendly curriculum to assist them in becoming interdependent learners by motivating natural curiosities and engaging them in intellectual pursuits transferable to the real world. Desert Sage School would be recognized as the most progressive preschool/lower school in the Valley. They offer children in the Las Vegas Valley, and eventually the southwestern U.S., an exceptional learning experience that benefits the community as a whole.
