    "For learners that have the drive to work, for students who get bored, for a person who wants to grow, Compass is where you want to be. It is not for everyone, but what is these days? The type of learning is very much college. At Compass our pillars are trust, respect and responsibility. Each play a large role in our lives because we have trust, gain respect and learn responsibility just being part of the culture. I have loved every second of going to school there and will miss in the day after graduation."

    "Compass academy is the only New Tech High School in the area. Compass Academy has been an escape from the traditional High School. Compass has a student culture based upon trust, respect, and responsibility. Students are trusted with laptops to keep for the duration of the school yeah, "colaboration periods" where a student has time to his or herself to do homework or study, and with the lack of lockers, students must trust each other to respect their belongings. Because compass is the only New Tech High School in the area, students come from all over to attend, the diversity is more than wide. Compass has helped me learn about the world as much as it has taught me about myself. The facilitators have gone beyond expectation to make sure me and my peers succeed. I will always be proud of the decision I took in 8th grade to apply and attend, it hugely impacted my social and academic life."

    "I love this school. Compass Academy is a NewTech Network school and I feel like it does a much better job of preparing students for life after high school than a traditional high school does. This school incorporates a lot of group work, which can be hard at times but is much more realistic. No matter what you do after graduation, you are likely to have to interact with if not directly work with other people and Compass does a great job of growing professional social skills. The best part of Compass is the teachers-student relationship, which is very friendly and laid-back. Students have no problem going to teachers for help. Compass also has a college-like class schedule and allows students far more freedoms than usual. This is intended to teach responsibility but it has led to many discipline problems as well. Compass has problems with theft and cheating."

    "Compass Academy has been a great experience for me, and I know I can say the same for my friends. Compass gives students opportunities to take charge of their education. It gives us a chance to get involved in the community and give back to society. At compass we use project based learning, this means mostly we use real world applications for concepts on paper. Because we use real world problems for our projects, this requires us to take our take what we learnt in one class and apply it in other places where we wouldn't in a traditional highschool school."
