‘Modern’ One-Room School House Coming to Denver’s Highland Neighborhood

Think of a one-room school house — it’s probably an old wooden school on a prairie in the 1800s, maybe with Laura Ingalls Wilder and her sister Mary inside, right? Except, this August, a new one-room school house comes to Perry Street in Denver’s Highland neighborhood.

Before it does, Highlands Micro School Director Anne Wintemute has to finish a $300,000 renovation to take a modest duplex and turn it into a ”homey, but modern” little school for 24 kindergarten through 5th graders.
