Compass-Northdale Center Reviews

By a Current Student on

I definitily think Compass is a great school. It may be small, but that gives the support staff to work individually with each student. Everyone counts at Compass, its kind of like a little family. Its a great school for kids who need something different. I would even pick this school over my regular school. Compass lays down the law in a friendly way. But sometimes the teachers are to strict. This school is known for having 'bad kids' but its not like that at all . It sometimes feels like some teachers think the same.  But overall compass is great, and most staff there are truly wonderful.
