Whittier Elementary School

Colorado Springs charter school buys the campus it has been leasing for 8 years

Nov. 29, 2021
Mountain Song Community School is paying $3.25 million for the building that housed Whittier Elementary School.

Mountain Song Community School, a charter school in Colorado Springs, Colo., is buying a former public school building that it has been leasing since 2013.

Colorado Springs School District 11 has agreed to sell the former Whittier Elementary School building to the charter school for $3.25 million, reports The Colorado Springs Gazette. Whittier was closed in 2010, and Mountain Song opened there in 2013. 

The charter school serves about 403 students from kindergarten to eighth grade. 

The structure is the latest of several buildings sold or repurposed by the school district in recent years. The former Ivywild Elementary School has been converted into a brewery, pub and marketplace. Lincoln Elementary is now a mixed-use commercial center.
