    "Montessori school is supposed to teach children to be able to make decisions for themselves with the guidance of their educators. With the extended amount of time they spend with the children teachers and staff guidance has a large influence on how the children learn to function in society. It is important that educators do not only teach reading, writing, and arithmetic.. but also teach the children kindness, to be thoughtful, to be courteous, and to be considerate of people around you. Unfortunately the Compass Montessori School in Wheat Ridge is not able to, or not willing to, value courtesy or considerate behavior. It has been requested politely, sternly, and even by the Wheat Ridge Police that they make more of an effort to guide their students to be more considerate of the neighbors around them. Unfortunately, this type of guidance is above the staff's level of competence. I would be extremely hesitant to let a child of mine, or of a friend be taught with this type of negligent guidance. It has been requested that they improve their ability to instill being considerate of those around, but the educators have shown it is outside of their level of competence."

    "I thought this would be a good school, but I have been extremely disappointed. Too much play time and not much interest in core education. In my opinion Its more a club than a quality school. The "Executive Board" doesn't seem to know much about education.. I hope the newly elected school board will do something about this school."

    "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. I wish that I could give a more than 5 star rating for the quality of the teachers; it is a joy to think to myself in the morning, "I'm so glad that my kid gets to spend her day with you." Not only have they guided my child to meet all of her academic milestones on time, watching them has taught me invaluable things about how to best support a growing learner. I appreciate the expanded Montessori curriculum, which includes teaching geography from preschool and grammar/mechanics from first grade. Not to mention peace and conflict resolution from the earliest ages. Beyond the academics at Compass, I am thrilled with all of the intangibles--things like opportunities for parent education; student leadership development; critical thinking and problem solving skills; self discipline; and independence. These kids know how to find the information they need, rather than regurgitate facts and figures for the benefit of the adults around them. They know how to learn, and that is what I want for my children."

    "I am so impressed by Compass Montessori school! This is such a great way to teach kids about the real world and their place in it. My daughter is in the Farm School (7th - 9th grades) and she learns through practical application of leadership skills, self direction, personal responsibility, care of self and others (human and animal), community service, social and environmental issues, real world use of academic lessons and many opportunities for personal growth. This is unlike any school I went to growing up. The students who come out of the full Compass program are light years beyond their peers in so many ways! Our family loves Compass!"
