Open Quote My boys attended Compass. My one son had a learning disability. We had an IEP in place since he was in the 2nd grade. This school had no idea how to conduct an IEP meeting or how to write up an IEP. It took us several times with me giving direction. The teachers didn't even come to the IEP meeting to give an update on how he was doing in class. They were out of compliance and the principal didn't seem to care or see to it that things were done right.
My other son failed a class his freshman year and made the class up. They told him he wasn't going to graduate because he was short on credits. We went in and spoke to the principal / owner who said that he didn't complete or make up the class. He did and passed it with a B - As a parent I sat there and told her to go through his entire folder of records. Yep it was there and he did receive a grade of a B.
This school is unprofessional and students wont get an education. My sons came home with stories of how they watched movies in classes. didn't have to go to class. How teachers tried to be more like friends than a teacher. Students get away with murder and don't have to go to class. Students check in when they get to school and the school gets paid for them being there. The kids ditch, go out behind the school and smoke and the teachers and staff know about it and don't care because the school has checked them in and they are getting paid.
This is a joke of a school. If you want your children to get an education put them somewhere else. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is 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! Here they be sure of hiring only those who truly care for students progression and takes a personal interest in them individually. I owe Compass A LOT for where I am today and would recommend this school to anyone who's tired of boring conventional schools that only look at students as their income. Discover Your Potential!

Open Quote My son has been at Compass for two days and has never been happier. He is intelligent and talented and is not treated like a metric number lost in a crowd. He is treated with respect and as an individual with aspirations of his own. Morals are learned at home, I am at Peace with our choice. Close Quote

Open Quote If you want your child to start smoking, buy drugs and get pregnant, those opportunities are readily available at this school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
