Amare Montessori plans to build new school in Sango

A new home for Clarksville’s Amare Montessori school is in the works.

The Clarksville-Montgomery County Health, Education & Housing Facilities Board, whose membership mirrors the local Industrial Development Board, is preparing to sign off on $3.5 million in tax-exempt revenue bonds for building the replacement Montessori school on nearly 21 acres on Miller Road in Sango.

The agreement is pending a Dec. 9 public hearing, which is standard.

The site is between the new Hereford Farms residential development and Resthaven Memorial Gardens off U.S. Highway 41A South. Local governments will not be held liable for bond payments, officials said.

Students of Clarksville's Amare Montessori school gather for an outdoor lesson this fall, on the site of the new Amare school coming to Sango.

Amare Montessori already has a 6-year-old Clarksville school on Warfield Boulevard near Wilma Rudolph Boulevard. But the move to a new home is needed as the school’s needs grow with the rapidly-expanding city, said Amare Head of School Jaime Yeager.

“We purchased our current property in 2015, thinking at the time that we had at least 10 years before we were at (student enrollment) capacity,” Yeager said. “But we actually met that total in year three.”
