Loved Compass high school! This school was definitely... different.

I visited Compass for the first time in Oct. 2009 my sophomore year and let me tell you I was surprised. I've never heard of (let alone seen) a charter school before in my life. I was skeptic for back then it was just a renovated shopping center with teachers and I didn't know exactly what to think of it. After three short years and graduating from there however I can honestly say that it might not be up to par with conventional high school professionalism and there ideas of learning and teaching environments, but Compass has hit the nail on the head when it comes to understanding students and what's best for their learning needs and truly understand that textbook learning isn't for the majority anymore and that hands on application and personal interest is where learning becomes natural, easy and most importantly FUN!

Great school! I don't think I could have graduated without Compass. Between the staff's guidance and the patience the teachers had with me, I was able to earn all my credits in three years. Compass has an awesome atmosphere and I also made some lifelong friends while there. I would 100% recommend Compass!
Graduating this year, and I couldn't be more grateful! Compass has given me full support and helping me get back in track. I love the teacher to student ratio, which has helped me a lot in not being afraid to asks questions or for help. I was recommended to this school and now I'm recommending Compass to all my friends
