Compass was founded in 2005 by a group of parents who were looking for something different than what traditional public school offered. The focus for the educational program was established on kindness, positive school culture, and high academic expectations. Since its inception, the school has grown from 275 students to nearly 900 students. In spite of the growth, Compass has continued to be successful both academically and culturally due to its exceptional teachers and leadership.

Clear Expectations, positive atmosphere and encouragement, the teachers and administration.
Character expectations as well as academic expectations combined with growth mindset objectives.
Great teachers and staff, great program, great student expectations and character training.
My children are pressed to learn more instead of being expected to stay with the state established grade level learning.
The small size of the school... knowing a lot of the families... feel like the teachers really get to know the students. Opportunities for academic excellence.
The culture and love that staff have for each student.
The small size, character guidelines and challenging curriculum stand out. I am thrilled that so many people are God centered. Open communication and discussion is appreciated.
