About Us

Compass Charter School is a safe and nurturing educational environment that honors the individuality of each learner. By engaging in a process of inquiry, our graduates will be equipped with the necessary skills to lead fulfilling personal and professional lives, including a developed sense of self, the ability to think in innovative and flexible ways, and the inspiration to make a positive impact on their community.

School overview:

  • Compass Charter School uses the Common Core State Standards along with student progress data from both formative and summative assessments to collaboratively plan high-quality and rigorous units of study. These units of study will regularly include cross-curricular experiences and lessons.
  • Students in grades K-5 loop with their classmates and teachers for two consecutive school years (K-1, 2-3, 4-5). Due to this longer teacher-student relationship, educators are be able to develop a deeper view and understanding of each child in their classroom in order to tailor instruction to better meet individual student needs.
  • Our extended school day runs from 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. for four days a week. One day a week, the school day runs from 8:00a.m. to 1:00p.m due to early release for teacher/staff development. We also offer an after school enrichment program with academic and extracurricular activities.
