Compass has exceeded our expectations at every turn. This is truly a community school, where kids learn benefit from belonging and learn the value of service.

Compass Montessori School is not for every student, nor has it pretended to be. The students who are successful at Compass are self-directed and dedicated to their education. I am getting ready to graduate this year and I believe that I am equipped for College. Volunteer opportunities allowed me to ...  Read more
