WICHITA — Compass Star Montessori is inviting the public to tour its energy-efficient, "all green" school building as part of its weeklong celebration of Earth Day.

The new school, 3500 N. Rock Road, will be open from 3:30 to 5 p.m. today through Friday.

The building is equipped with geothermal climate control and was constructed from natural materials. Compass Star, in its first year of operation, also teaches responsible environmental habits as part of its curriculum. The school serves children 6-12 years old.
