Beyond the Classroom

Compass-Midtown offers a structured weekly student social-Emotional Learning, Value-Based Character Education, and Service Learning structure entitled, " Compass-Midtown Houses" that is unique to the students enrolled at Compass Midtown. Students are engaged in weekly group meeting sessions instructed by Compass Midtown faculty that support the whole child and support positive student culture.

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. We utilize Carnegie Math, Study Sync for English and McGraw Hill for Science and Social Studies.

Sports

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. We offer volleyball for girls, track & field & cross country for boys & girls, and basketball and soccer for boys.

Academics

Passion for Teaching

Compass teachers know their content backward and forwards and are passionate about preparing Memphis youth academically and in character for college and lifelong success. Our teachers enjoy and benefit from our intentionally small school settings, which will help them to develop trusting, positive relationships with their students and colleagues.

Service Learning

In the Community

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. 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.
