About This School
We are an open school of choice and encourage mutual respect and self-control in and out of the classroom. We believe in non-coercive, non-threatening policies. We seek cooperation and communication and define ourselves with how we deal with conflict. We do set boundaries and have a student hand book which spells out the "rules" of our school.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Compass High School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2013, Compass High School had 15 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Arizona average is 21 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Compass High School Reviews
Quality life skills and applications taught by caring, fun teachers!
After three short years and graduating from CHS 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. Hands on application and personal interest is where learning becomes natural, easy and most importantly FUN! Keep it up Compass!
