I was a student here, and it was an amazing opportunity. I learned more being here for one year then I ever did at the high school. I love the class sizes and the teachers. They truly go above and beyond to help you graduate. I made up 2.5 years of high school in less then one year at compass point. They go back to the basics, they don't get caught up in what the high school has gotten caught up with, where they mixed smart kids with the some what challanged kids and expected the challenged kids to go at the same pace as the smart kids. Now I'm not dumb, in fact I graduated with all "A's" but that pace was just way to fast, so if you missed one day your screwed. Where as compass point they help you, you don't have to be afraid to ask questions and you get the opportunity for one on one help with the teacher actually during class, In fact the teachers actually welcome it. Now its not a cake walk, there are distractions, and it can get rowdy in the class rooms, but if your willing to try your best and to put the time in, you can graduate in no time. Defnitally worth a look if your in that situation where your too far behind, or you want to go back to school.
Alternative education opportunities at a fair price. They do not hold the students hand, but expect them to succeed with plenty of assistance available. Some teachers a padding their income, but they care about the students who care about themselves.
