Diamante Montessori School Plan

After months of vigorous debate and numerous public hearings, the Diamonte Montessori school move to a vacant church at the corner of Park Blvd and Hillside is closer to reality.

Neighboring residents and property owners sought court action to temporarily restrict the Village of Glen Ellyn's approval to modify the zone code and allow the school to relocate to the site.

Last week a DuPage County Circuit Court judge ruled against the injunction that would restrict progress of the school's plans to relocate while the lawsuit is heard in court.
