    "We are on our 4th year at Compass and have intentions of staying at least through 6th grade. We will def. send our second child to school here! I feel so thankful my kid isn't told to sit at a desk in a row and do the same work everyone else is doing. We have a very motivated, self-directed kid and I believe much of this was taught to her in her preschool years there. While I may wonder what they are doing in class sometimes , I never question it because I see the results. For me the biggest positive has been sense of community and respect for others. I smile with pride about my kids "playground behavior" when we are in public!! And she's right there academically with her peers... for me that's the biggest positive. I was always quite academic myself but I'd rather my kid be able to navigate the social world excellently and be equal intellectually to others rather than be smarter than the rest and stressed about perfect grades."

    "My son is going on his 3rd year at this school he will be a 1st grader. First if you don't understand what Montessori is do some research it will help you understand what is going on in the classroom. My son excelled here and loves the freedom to pick what he is going to learn. I love that the teachers encourage him to try new things and work with him on the things he finds hard. As I said he will be I first grade this year but is reading at a 5th grade level. I LOVE that they dont "teach to the test" when it come to state requirements yet they have GREAT final scores in high school. Its about the kids here! Great community and look in to the middle school here or "farm school" as we call it. You won't find that anywhere else."

    "Sending my children to Compass was one of the biggest mistakes we have made. We pulled our second grader out after she complained about doin the same work over and over (there are three grades in one room). My oldest was receiving a great education in bowling parties and yoga but not so much in reading, writing and math! I'm not quite sure how the school meets the requirements got student contact days as they seem to average one day a week where there is no school or it us a half day. The culture seems to be geared towards helicopter parents that can live at the school with their child and tense expectations are pushed onto working parents! The teachers are smug and condescending and the drama of the recent Board and admin is ridiculous!"

    "I am very happy with the pre-k Kindergarden program. It is a good school which is lacking in some areas due to funds. There are some down fall It is not free for pre-K and Kindergarden. It is really worth the money. Good school focused on making each child do their best."

    "My children are in their eighth year at Compass. The more I learn about Montessori, the more I appreciate having this as a free alternative to the testing focused curricula of our neighborhood school. And I am heartened to know that Compass is on par or better in terms of school performance, especially when it comes to longitudinal growth. Compass graduates are going onto top- notch colleges and interesting careers."
