Don’t count the days. Make the days count!

Compass Hickory Hill offers a welcoming learning environment in a community setting where everyone is family. Every teacher knows every student’s name, and even the small things catch our attention. Don’t be surprised if a teacher notices you forgot your glasses, got a haircut, or are wearing new shoes! Our passion is the students we serve. We focus on providing excellent teaching, modeling strong moral character, and opportunities for growth to transform them into responsible students and leaders.

Academics

Teachers who care

Compass Hickory Hill is a small school located in the heart of the Hickory Hill community. We pride ourselves on the fact that our best advertisement is “word of mouth” from our current families. Our families are very important to us because they trust us with the awesome responsibility of helping to educate their child. We believe that parents are the first educators of their children, and collaborating with parents is pivotal for students to meet their academic, social & emotional, and physical goals. Communication with our families is a priority with weekly updates through ‘Tuesday Notes,’ and the Monthly Mane newsletter published on the last Friday of each month. We also always encourage parents to communicate with their child’s teachers with any questions or concerns that they may have. The office staff and administration are always available to support our families.

Curriculum

Our goal is to equip students with the tools they need for success in college, and beyond. As a charter school, we have the freedom to select a curriculum that allows us to do just that. For grades K-5, we work with CKLA English, Ready Math, Inspire Science and Studies Weekly Social Studies. For grades 6-8, we offer Wit & Wisdom English, Ready Math, iScience and McGraw Hill Social Studies. All grades participate in Spark P.E. and Flex Art.

Extracurricular

We believe a world-class education is more than just academics. That is why we make sure extracurricular activities are available to all of our students. As of now, we offer Art, Physical Education and Student Guidance classes to all students. Classical ballet classes are offer through Ballet Memphis for our 3rd - 8th grade boys and girls.

Extended Hours

As a convenience to our families, we offer after care to all students for a minimal charge. After care hours are 3:45pm - 5:30pm (Monday - Friday). Due to Covid-19, we are not offering after care at this time. We hope to resume after care hours in the 2021 - 22 school year.

Service & Community

Agents of Change

Service-learning projects provide students with opportunities to apply newly learned knowledge and skills in real-world contexts, further cementing their understanding and giving their academic learning relevant purposes. Service learning serves as the intersection of our academic excellence and values-based character education pillars—bringing content, concepts, and skills gleaned from both to life through hands-on, tangible experiences.
