Compass Public Charter School Reviews
The teachers not only care about the students' education but about the lives of the students as well. They continually make the effort to get to know the students, ultimately building a strong and safe community. If an issue is occurring, the teachers are willing to help where needed, whether that bringing it up to administration, giving sound advice, or just listening to the student and the issue at hand. The teachers are what make the school. The teachers' continual encouragement has greatly affected the school community and culture in a positive and uplifting way, by creating a safe and welcoming atmosphere.
All of the teachers appreciate their students and visibly put in a large amount of effort to make sure their students not only understand their subjects and develop their skills, but to also make sure they are mentally healthy. I could have gone to any of my teachers if I was having stress or other issues. Every teacher are also very excited about their subjects and show actual interest in them as well as their student's work. Highly highly HIGHLY recommend. College is much easier because of my experience here.
I attended Compass for the duration of my high school career, entering as a freshman and graduating as a senior. The lessons I have taken with me have been a growth mindset, the impact of sources of strength and the core values associated with such. Mentors, which I found through my teachers and counselors who I could confide in over my academics and when I was having a rough week and needed to find comfort. I enjoyed the fact that it allowed me to experience a charter school since I had left other schools and didn't stay long since they didn't enrich my knowledge nor attitude about making friends or getting involved in school. I found that my art soared past my expectations and was highly encouraged and that grades didn't define your success. Opportunities such as the National Honor Society, community service and apprenticeships all pushed me forward.
