Here at Compass Orange Mound, every scholar is seen, known, and loved. Each scholar is supported in their learning and their development. We have a rigorous curriculum, experienced teachers, monthly community celebrations, exposure to new things, and a strong character program. In addition to our morning meeting each morning, scholars receive classroom guidance lessons from our school counselor every week.
Another pillar for our school is service learning and scholars are encouraged to give and serve others inside and outside of our school community. Scholars are invited to participate in quarterly incentive trips, educational experiences off campus, college tours per semester, and various activities throughout the school year. We partner with local organizations to bring the best experiences to our scholars, on and off campus.
Finally, scholars are encouraged to be brave and operate in excellence. Our founding year we focused on our rally cry which is to “Be Brave. Make History.” and moving forward our motto is “Learning and Serving In Excellence.” We as a staff believe in modeling the way for scholars and showing the opportunities that are available to them if they put forth their best effort and persevere.
