About This 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 Montessori - Wheat Ridge Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Compass Montessori - Wheat Ridge Charter School Reviews
Worst decision we ever made
Sending our children here. The teachers are smug and condescending and since they have three grades together, our second grader was so bored doing "the same work as last year" we pulled her out! This school caters towards the helicopter parent so if you are insanely involved in ever aspect of your child's life, it will be a good fit but while they learn how to go bowling and do yoga, the instruction in math, reading and writing will be limited.
My children attend Compass Montesorri, and we LOVE this school. Love see my children take charge of their own education. 5 stars all the way.
